He got around....
Stevie sounds like Stevie on anything.
His Brother Jimmy had a 52 Tele growing up and I believe that was his first instrument.
I didn't realize David lived in the U.S., I was talking about colorful/funny outfits in Texas. New York's got 'em too. Texans can be colorful, so can New Yorkers, difference is the New Yorkers are just plain nuts:
Yeah, we're all bozos on this bus. I was commenting on the fact that you said something about coming to visit us (Texans being the implication), yet you're in NY.
I will admit that native Texans (we're a dying breed) do have a strong tendency to dress in some peculiar and sometimes flamboyant ways. SRV took it to another level altogether.
, indeed we are.
Sorry for confusion. My post was a bit obtuse.
I've been there too. Lived right between Chelsea and Hell's Kitchen.
NYers wear hats too, but it's to fend off pigeon droppings.
Stevie Ray Hamiltone Sig
SRV played a bunch of different guitar brands. He just became more famous for his iconic strats than any of the others.
Nobody said that. But once he got smart that's all he played.....
Stevie could play a ukulele and it would be magic.
I heard a story about one of the other members of double trouble walking thru a shopping mall with SRV one day, and getting the sense that people were staring, he initially thought "gee, Stevie must be a big deal in this town" then he realised they probably didn't know who SRV was, and were staring at his clothes (lots of loud velvet, polka dots, tiger stripes, big hat, snakeskin boots, etc)
Here's a video about the Jimbo guitar with some shots of young SRV playing it.
I believe that white Tele SRV is playing in the T-Birds vid is the one that Jimmie used to cut "Girls Go Wild".
I wonder who bought the Jimbo guitar and how much.
"Who said Stevie Ray only played Strats?"
nobody, as far as I know
Here he is, pre-Texas Flood rekkid, with a Tokai Springy Sound.
I know he added the second pickguard, but it looks like there's a Varitone on there as well? Never saw a Riviera with a bound headstock either.
Smile when you say that, pardner!
I dunno. Who said SRV only played Strats? Anybody?
