One of the great names in Texas blues, Jimmie Vaughan has always wielded a Stratocaster® with masterful voice and feel. His signature model, the Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Strat, gives you masterful voice and feel, too, with an original-era Stratocaster look and some special hot-rodded Vaughan modifications that make it a fiery performer with a distinctive touch of Tejano vibe.
Tinted maple neck with “soft V” profile
9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets
Tex-Mex single-coil neck and middle pickups (no tone control on middle pickup)
Extra-hot Tex-Mex single-coil bridge pickup
Five-way pickup switch
Single-ply white pickguard
"SOFT V" NECK PROFILE
The special "soft V" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on the Jimmie Vaughan Tex-Mex Strat is sculpted to Vaughan’s own exacting specs, with a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s "V" profile and "softens" it into a somewhat more rounded shape.
The Tex-Mex single-coil pickups on this guitar are over-wound for tight, clear bass, sparkling high end and maximum output ideal for everything from soaring clean tone to earthy Texas grit.
"WIDE-OPEN" MIDDLE PICKUP
As specified by Vaughan himself, the middle pickup on his signature model is "wide-open," meaning that it’s unaffected by the tone control knobs.
