    And here she is now with my favorite pickguard / pickup covers / knobs set up.

    I love the gold hardware with the creamy parchement knobs and covers...

    I just got mine on a trade (thanks clinpep05) I love it, it's well worn but with great tone. the action is a bit higher than I'm used to on my other guitars with not a lot of room on the saddle adjustment screws to lower it, is this done by design because that's how SRV's guitar actually is? just curious. Thanks.

    sounds like it needs a full setup and it might just be the truss rod is too loose which makes the action so high...

    Thanks for your response, it' not really so high (less than 1/8") and the neck is straight as an arrow and well intonated. I think it's just me....

    Don't forget that theese frets are kinda ''tall'' ... taller than most strats you've probably played ! Might be the reason...

    Also... is she set up for a floating bridge ?? this can make your action high if the bridge floats too high.

    Sadly, today i made the hard decision to sell my SRV Strat, bought a year ago to try and keep myself motivated while i went through physio for a shoulder injury that might take anywhere from 1-3 years to resolve, it became obvious that my shoulder was not going to get any better, and i was getting ever more depressed looking at it in the corner, and not able to pick it up and enjoy it

    I managed to play the guitar maybe 8 times for half an hour tops in the year i had it :(

    Hopefully its going to home where it will be played, and not to a blues lawyer....or a dentist

    Now i just have to find a new hobby after 30+ years of Stratting, i think i might get into porn, not starring in it, watching it :)

    Just my opinion but I wouldn't pay what they what for a SRV signature Strat. Honestly I have played one and I have several that play better that cost a lot less. I opened for SRV back in 88 and for me that is better than any tribute guitar I could own.

    Can you share a little more about opening for him? Did you get to meet him? Where was this at?

    It was in Davenport, Iowa Live and Alive tour in 88 he played at the Leclaire Park band shelter. Of course I got to meet him and afterwards we had to play a club called the Cavern and a few of his band members came over to see us. Stevie didn't come because he had stopped drinking and avoided going to bars and clubs. The funny thing is that Steppenwolf and the Allman Brothers had been opening for him but for whatever reason they didn't for this gig even though official records say they did. That is not the case Coldshot opened for him in Davenport and that has been changed in Wiki several times but keeps getting changed back. Stevie was one of the nicest guys I've even met at his level. I've also met Clapton (nice guy too), Jon Bon Jovi another nice guy and several others many that were not so nice. As a teen my neighbor was good friends with Johnny Winter and every time he was passing through he stopped to see her so I got to hang out with him several times and he is one of the reasons I love the Blues.
