It's a Fender Buddy Guy Signature Stratocaster modded with a new neck, dark blue spray paint around the forearm, some stickers in the pickguard, Oakland written around one dot and the angled SH-4 Jeff Beck humbucker in the bridge. Billie will probably start using this as an Blue backup.more
"Buddy Guy has always been a favorite of mine and I used to listen to him when I was a kid. When I was 12 years old I was reading one of those catalogs Fender used to send out- the 'Frontline', and in it I saw a Buddy Guy signature stratocaster and I just had to have it. I begged my parents to buy it for me and they eventually did. I remember calling every music store in the tri-county area, and only one store had it. I remember that drive up there, I was so excited. I finally got to the store and I saw it on the display rack, it was the last one they had. I ran over to it and when I picked it up and held it in my hand I knew I had to have it. Sometimes when you pick up a guitar, even without playing it, you've fallen in love with it, and you already know that it's that special one that you're gonna play every night. Without playing it I fell in love with it and I have played that guitar every single night since then. I changed the pickups to lace sensors and that's been my main axe. Buddy himself held my guitar backstage one night and ever since then, every time I get onstage and play, Buddy's licks just flow out of that guitar. It's that guitar that I'ma probably get buried with."more
