With elegant and accurate design, pickups that can sound anywhere from buttery to raunchy, and a robust neck, Fender's Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster is a fitting tribute to a guitarist gone long before his time. Get tone as big as Texas with this SRV signature Strat!
Get the Feel of the Blues: Thick Oval Neck Profile
True to Fender Form, the Stevie Ray Vaughan Strat starts with an Adler body that most Fender fans will find comfortable and familiar. The maple neck is carved in an early '60s thick oval profile, perfect for players who like to feel a bit of chunk as they grab the neck and bend strings. The neck is topped with a Pao Ferro fretboard. Similar to rosewood, Pao Ferro is known for its crisp high end and percussive sound.
Sound Like Stevie: 3 Texas Special Single-Coil Pickups
Blues guitarists can instantly recognize Stevie Ray Vaughan's signature guitar sound from hearing just a few notes. Fender has loaded this Strat with three Texas Special single-coil pickups to put that rich sound in your hands. The single-coil twang is intact, but play this guitar through a hot tube amp and you'll reach blues-rock heaven. The neck pickup delivers fat, rounded tone while the bridge pickup snarls and has plenty of bite. Placing the pickup selector between the middle and neck pickups will give you that lush, slightly out-of-phase sound that's perfect for clean rhythms.
Hardware to Honor SRV: Down to the Left-Handed Tremolo
Being a signature model, the Stevie Ray Vaughan Strat pays tribute to the legendary guitarist right down to the details. Gold-plated vintage hardware on the tuners, bridge, input jack, and strap buttons recall the look of the guitars Stevie Ray played onstage. The tremolo even has a left-handed orientation, just like on the original. To cap it off, the "SRV" initials are inscribed into the black pick guard.
