Oh most definitely! I have played guitar with several locals. I have watched guitarist for over 20 years. And I can tell you this, I have never seen ONE that you can FEEL everything he plays and sings about like SRV can! You can be guaranteed that the man lived out his life experiences through the music he played! Awesome stuff Biffster!

Yeah, that guy does need to slow it down even more! LOL! Even for me. He is not calling out the cords nor the finger progression. I'm used to the hooked on phonics version! LOL!

What did you get Gary?? I have three guitars right now - a 1978 Tabacco Sunburst Fender Strat, a '90's version of an ESP Mirage (my old Heavy Metal guitar days), and a 2000 Limited Edition, signature Ovation acoustic. Still have my Fender M80 amp with a Peavy dual 10" cabinet too. Have not picked up the guitar in God knows when, but aside from heavy metal stuff, I used to love to pick SRV and just make up my own blues licks. Last time I seriously played, I used to string my guitar up with some Dean Markley Cold Blue steels - some times 10's some times 12's (depends on what music I was playing). If you ever have the cash snag a set of them - those things have life that is unreal! Even when the strings start to rust out their tone and sustain are awesome!

Heck man, I really used to like the Ibanez axes - the neck is just too thin for me though and just never felt 100% right. Definitely no slouch at all! I bet that dual coil rear hummbucker is hot. Does not look all that bad. Most China imports were clean. It was the Mexico imports that were horrible! When I worked at H&H Clear Lake back in the day I used to rewire and solder many Mexico guitars - I mean those things were a mess - I'd even find piece of solder and wire in the back where you install the pickups. At any rate, nice find for sure bro!! Have tons of fun!!!
