This photo, sourced from the official site of Doyle Bramhall II, shows him playing a Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Electric Guitar in a black finish with a rosewood neck. He has turned the guitar upside-down.
Wanted a Strat for awhile now, and I like this one. It has HSS, which is great. The single coils are pretty noisy of course but what the hey. I need to get the action raised again. I just love the sound and feel of a good Strat! Mine has a black pickguard.
