I know this has probably been asked a billion times and i once saw a sticky but no more. question is can i get an srv tone from a fender american standard strat? if possible what gear/mods would i have to buy to achieve that tone.

Im really digging this tone right here from KWS. what do i need for that tone?

Also ive noticed that KWS and John Mayer both have these sick painting on there guitars how does one get those? are those from fender custom shop?

Paint it yourself. Makes it more unique.

And for the KWS tone, a good way, a nice tube amp and probably something like Fender Texas Special pickups, or something like that.

Well, the paintjob looks like the Hendrix Signature Monterery Pop Festival Strat, as to my recolection, not too many were made, and the ones that were sold off cost about a testical each.

But as said, throw some dirty pups in there and run through a Fender, and you've got a nice dirty SRV sound jettin' through there.

I think these would be better for SRV-

sounds pretty good. i noticed it said scooped mids. how exactly does that sound. i remember i was on musicians friend and srvs/JM's custom guitar had exactly that specified. is that what helps define that specific tone im looking for.
