A true guitarist’s guitarist, it’s arguable that Jimmie Vaughan’s playing style inspired the ‘80s/’90s blues rock revival. From his days with the Fabulous Thunderbirds to his partnership with SRV, Family Style, and his own solo works, Vaughan’s tasteful playing style and classic tone continue to carry the torch for a truly indigenous American art form—the blues. The artisans of the Custom Shop and Vaughan worked hand-in-hand to design the Jimmie Vaughan Signature Stratocaster, the epitome of a “workingman’s guitar”. Representing the current stage configuration of his Stratocaster, this guitar features custom options designed expressly for this instrument and is setup to JLV’s personal specifications.
The rich, articulate voice of the custom hand-wound JLV single-coil Strat pickups—including a RWRP middle pickup—is channeled through JLV Modified 2 wiring for even more tone-shaping possibilities. The ‘50s-style two-piece select alder Strat body hosts a Lush Closet Classic lacquer finish that lets the wood breathe with pure resonance and sustain while wearing in a distinctively personal style. The tinted one-piece rift-sawn maple neck sports a custom ”JLV C”-shaped profile that precisely matches the shape of his favorite neck and bears a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 57110 jumbo frets.
Other features include Closet Classic hardware, single-ply Eggshell pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
