Stevie Ray Vaughan all but defined the blues movement during the ‘80s. So much so that his distinct SRV Strat is among the most recognisable instruments of all time. The team at the Fender Custom Shop faithfully recreated this iconic guitar down to the finest detail before SRV’s passing – and now it’s taking pride of place as a permanent addition to the Custom Artist Collection.

Key features

  • 2-piece select Alder body
  • Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish
  • 3 x Custom Shop Hand-Wound Texas Special Single-Coil Strat pickups
  • Closet classic gold hardware with flipped left-handed tremolo
  • Oval C neck profile that’s slightly thinner on the treble side
  • SRV engraved pickguard

Here’s what Fender say:

If there were a Mount Rushmore of Stratocaster Masters, Stevie Ray Vaughan would be one of the greats enshrined there. Almost single-handedly responsible for the electric blues revival of the 80s and 90s, he used his beloved Strat, to blaze his way to the top of the charts. Only the artisans at the Custom Shop could craft this guitar that Vaughan co-designed with us before his untimely passing. It’s one of the most revered guitars in the world, and we’re proud to make it a permanent addition to the Custom Artist Collection.

SRV heavily modified his Strat to match his energetic, yet controlled, playing style. We included a trio of hot, high-output Custom Shop Hand-Wound Texas Special pickups for fiery, authentically Fender tone that’s as big as the Lone Star state. As an homage to his personal hero, Jimi Hendrix (who’s also been known to pick up a Strat) SRV used a left-handed vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge on his guitar, allowing him to work the tremolo arm with his elbow—a modification we cheerfully recreated.

The two-piece body is crafted from Alder selected for its weight and grain, and its Relic lacquer finish will age and wear in a distinctly personal way, just like the original. The tinted riftsawn Maple neck has an “Oval C” profile that’s slightly thinner on the treble side, making it easier to bend those strings into the stratosphere—a precise recreation of his favourite guitar’s neck profile.

Other features include closet classic gold hardware, 5-way pickup switching, vintage-style wiring, 3-ply Black “SRV” pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, rosewood fingerboard, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hard-shell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
