Get the tone
Jimmie is mainly a Strat man but has sometimes been seen playing a Gretsch G400 JV Signature guitar. He has a collection of Fenders including a Signature Fender Tex Mex Model. Jimmie had seen both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy play Strats, and unsurprisingly that was what he had to have. He got his first one for about $175 in the late-60s, a maple neck ‘58 and has cultivated his style and sound mainly around Strats ever since. He also supported Jimi Hendrix in Fort Worth Dallas in 1969. Jimmie likes to use a Fender Bassman amp, but has been seen playing both Matchless and a Grammatico (modelled on a Bassman). For the audio examples I’m using a maple neck Strat into a Fender Ramparte Combo thru a Cab Clone into my DAW system.
