Rory with his No.2 Strat in Germany 1987, photo by Wolfgang Guerster.
“I have a ‘57 Strat as prime back up (note: Rory’s original Stratocaster is a ‘61 model). Actually, I’m starting to use the ‘57 model a lot more these days because it allows me to be a bit more precise.”
This was the main guitar on the track ‘I Ain’t No Saint’ from the Defender album
“This is a kind of Albert King thing. Guitar was a three tone sunburst ’57 Strat I rarely use. I’ve put heavier frets on it, and neutered the middle tone control. It’s a very Buddy Guy Strat with a maple neck. Rosewood necks always sound a bit more mellow than maple. You get a different tone tension from a maple neck; maple necks are more snappy.”
