1992 Fender Stratocaster Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) Signature


Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) was a famous American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. Born in Dallas, Texas, Stevie Ray Vaughan began playing guitar at a young age and quickly developed an exceptional talent for the instrument.

In the early 1970s, he began playing in local blues clubs and quickly became noted for his energetic and passionate playing style. In 1982, he signed with the Epic Records label and released his debut album, "Texas Flood", which received critical acclaim and launched his career worldwide.

During the 1980s, Stevie Ray Vaughan achieved notable commercial and critical success with albums such as "Couldn't Stand the Weather" and "Soul to Soul." He has won several Grammy Awards for his recordings and has been praised for his ability to fuse traditional blues influences with elements of rock and jazz.

Despite his short career, Stevie Ray Vaughan had a considerable influence on the music of his era and is considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time. His virtuoso playing technique, passion and energy have inspired generations of musicians, and his music continues to inspire fans around the world.

The SRV Signature Stratocaster series debuted in late 1991, but was not introduced at NAMM until 1992 in Anaheim, California.
