Joe Bonamassa Playing A Fender Stratocaster

bonamassa_strat1_400Joe is using a Fender Stratocaster during the recording sessions at Black Rock Studios. It’s amongst one of the many guitars that he is using. As you can see, he is also using a slide on his finger. I’d love to hear what Joe’s take is on playing a Stratocaster again. Back in 2007, Joe said he would stop using a Stratocaster due to what happened with Joe’s gold Stratocaster. Last I heard that guitar was given to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I’m looking forward to hearing the sound of a Stratocaster again.

  • Really looking forward to hearing the new album. Joe said he is inspired by the Isle of Sanorini.

  • Joe….I don’t care what kinda guitar you play…..just get to NYC with those fellas from BCC…….or ya can bring Carmine, Boogie, and Rick……doesn’t matter just get there ASAP!!! PLEASE!!!!!!! Can’t WAIT!!!!!!

  • One of the cool things about Joe is that he could play a no-name guitar off the shelf at Wal-Mart and still sound amazing. Seems perfectly natural for him to re-visit old friends from time to time, especially as the music evolves.

    I was under the impression the gold sparkle Strat went to auction for a charity–maybe even EC’s Crossroads facility? Not sure.

  • Hi Bill,

    >>> Joe said he would stop using a Stratocaster due to what happened with Joe’s gold Stratocaster. <<<

    What happened to it?

    Thanks!
