    It still ends up sounding like SRV though.

    I saw him play several times in Dallas and Austin, back in the late 70s. He was playing a Rickenbacker at least half of the time back then and sounded incredible.

    Wow that was cool.

    Just more proof each persons tone is as unique as a fingerprint.

    It didnt sound like a Strat but it did soumd like SRV.

    Thats a rare clip I thought Id seen every SRV performance ever recorded. LOL

    The first album I bought by SRV was Soul to Soul which had a picture of him with an ES335 on the jacket cover. Until I saw him on Television sometime in the late 80s that is what I thought he played.

    Yeah, I've heard about that.
    Would love to hear him on a RIC.
    Any recordings/video clips of those?


    (Jorma used to play lead for the Airplane on a RIC-12 at one time if you can believe it ... until the guitar got thrown against a wall one day ... and eventually sold by his wife.)


    Here is some of my favorite SRV without a Strat:

    I've never seen him play without a hat.
    ergo,
    It's gotta be the hat. :cool:

    The giant eighth notes on his guitar strap aren't so tasteful, either. But hey, his playing more than makes up for it, eh? :)
