Few artists have been so widely discussed among guitar players in terms of tone influence.
Players around the entire world have tried to replicate Stevie Ray Vaughan’s licks and tone, and it sure as hell is not easily done.
His unique signature tone and straightforward pentatonic Texas blues licks can be immediately recognized.
The fingerboard also features a flatter 12" radius and jumbo frets, which allows for effortless bends and vibratos without fretting out. Plug it in, and its three Texas Special single-coil pickups live up to that birthright.Sometimes also referred to as the “First Wife," Stevie acquired the guitar at Ray Hennig’s Heart of Texas Music in Austin. “Number One” consists of a 1963 body fitted with pickups taken from a ’59, and a 1962 neck, which has an unusually thick D profile that clearly suited SRV’s unique approach.Over the years, “Number One” has undergone several changes and a few accidents—and even some abuse—all of which adds to its unique characteristics.The band captures the essence of the late guitarists sound and recreates it with an authenticity and sense of respect second to none.This is the Real Deal."
