Summary: I probably have one of the first SRVs since I bought it back in germany right after it came out. This must be at least 15 years ago or so. There's not much more to say than I still love this guitar better than any otehr else. During the last 6-7 years I can honestly say it even gets better every year - probably due to the fine wood selection.
Summary: I like this giutar I played it for about 40 minutes and it was pretty cool. You will love the wammy bar, its so great where it is, you and just rest it on your lower arm and its so easy to use I love it.
Summary: This guitar is amazing....but it could be better...mine comes out of tune a lot...sometimes I play a few chords and its out of tune already....I might just need a set up done but...the other thing I don't like about it is the high action it comes with...I know Stevie played with high action and the left handed trem but.....fender should make some regular ones too......they prolly do and I look like an idiot right now...lol...
Summary: Hands-down the finest blues guitar I've ever played. Received the SRV 10 days ago and can't keep my hands off it (my Les Paul Studio and PRS CE-22 just sit in their cases now). The craftsmanship, pickups, neck and range of sound are superb. The higher action, Texas pickups, and pao ferro board combined with the 250R strings gives you a ringing-bright crispness not possible with any other guitar.
Summary: I have owned my SRV since 98 . I know people who would never play a Fender guitar that can't keep their hands off it. I have single handedly converted numerous guitar players who play high end guitars into owning this special beauty . I have never loved a guitar more. This is undoubtedly the best guitar I have ever owned. Just one last little note: I own and play Les Pauls - PRS and custom guitars but my favorite one is the SRV .
Summary: I've played many different guitars, but this one is the ultimate for the blues enthusiast. The sound is incredible from the Texas Special pickups (there's nothing like it). The neck is effortless and the jumbo frets let you bend notes and vibrato freely. The left handed tremolo bar is a little strange at first, but you'll love the feel as you play it more. It's hard to put this guitar down. It just begs to be played. If you're a SRV fan and you play guitar..
Summary: I've had this guitar for about 6 months now and I've never had a bad time playing it. I've played in bars with some friends and it's a blast. I love the sound of the Texas special pickups. They're not exactly like Stevie's, but if you spend a few minutes and set your effects up right, you can come really close to that Texas blues sound.
