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.
