Stevies original #1 was a 62′ Fender Stratocaster, with replaced necks and frets. Obtaining those parts isan expensive task. Alternatively, the 62′ Fender Japanese reissues are almost identical to the actual 62′ USA. After stripping the bodies, refinishing with Fullerplast, and tri-color sunburst lacquer, the body transformation is ready for distress. The same process applied to the neck and headstock while obtaining original 62′ Vintage decals. Frets are replaced with Dunlop Jumbos also.
The pickups are Texas Specials, and the bridge is a left-handed gold Fender Vintage with a Right Handed bar. Tuners are Fender Ultras, just as SRV had.
All knobs and plastic is aged, and markings are done as close as possible to the original as found in many different photos.
