    I was recently in Nashville and stopped by Kelton Swade's home to jam on some guitars. This Olympic white "Jimi" strat was just amazing! Almost played itself. If I had the scratch it would have come home with me. Check it out.

    The pickups in that one are his I believe. He winds his own on certain guitars. That one just plays amazing! Thanks for the compliments and for checking that out!

    Hey thanks everyone. Birdie that amp was just a clean amp made by someone in Nashville. I just had it set to clean and was using my trusty old "Sonny Boy" pedal made by C-tech. They don't make them anymore and I've had mine for over 15 years now. There's a setting on the pedal called "Money Maker" which is what I use and it's just a real warm, compressed, overdrive. That and a Boss DD3 was all I had in front of the clean amp.

    Hey thanks Monte. That particular strat is a Kelton Swade Olympic white model. Great playing guitar. Thanks for the compliment on the playing. If you dig it check out my instructional site and take a look at the Blues/Rock lesson. Lots of that style in that lesson

    There is one of those pedals on ebay for $150 right now..

    If I had any money I would get one..the tones in that video were stunning to me..!

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question sir.. :)

    Yeah man they're awesome instruments. Something about them that just feels right. Nice looking 54 you got. I'm sure it will go quick.
