Polishing my David Gilmour Skills on USA Fender Stratocaster 2011 HSS (which stands for humbucker – single coil – single coil pick up configuration). I love to use the whammy bar on a guitar that actually can stay in tune when using the tremolo like it was intended to be used. I tuned up and quickly laid down some Pink Floyd comfortably numb 1st solo (it’s so damn epic) just as an excuse to go to town on the whammy bar! I love a good strat!
I just taste tasted this beauty and all I can say is omg!! Tone drips off the neck of this USA made guitar. It’s got the classic Strat quack and nasal tone that keeps the Strat so famous and relevant to even the newest music on stage and in the studio.
This 2011 Fender USA Statocaster 1950 Tribute with Seymour Duncan pickups pups upgrade sounds and looks the part perfectly – a great tribute to the beloved 1950 spirit in this 2011.
This replica of Stevie Ray Vaughn’s 1962 Fender Strat was rebuilt with much love and skill by Butch Frable for Fat Cat Custom Guitars.
Butch has generously donated this guitar for auction at the benefit for Nicky Sorbelli, along with this gig bag, generously donated by Jack Gretz of Northeast Music Center.
We are still accepting donations for the raffles if you are able to help!
HELP Nicky Sorbelli my 9yr old son whom we just discovered has T Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (cancer) & we badly need everyone to HELP & PRAY & SHARE.
So far he is responding well to treatment. Treatment plan for now is Thurs – Saturday in Miami children’s hospital every week for next seven months. Then once a month for three years. So it’s going to be a long strange
For those of you who are unable to attend a fundraiser, donations can be made directly to any First State Bank branch of the FL Keys in person by mentioning Wayne and/or Jamie Sorbelli and the account ending in 2487 or mail to :
