Body Double

January 23, 2012

Here I'm performing live with my 1959/60 Stratocaster nicknamed The Hitmaker

"The Hitmaker" is the nickname of my 1959/60 Fender Stratocaster guitar. It's the workhorse of my stable. I've calculated that it's performed on more than two billion dollars worth of music.

However, there is another guitar hero in my herd. It's my plexiglass Guitarman and it usually stands-in for The Hitmaker in videos and TV appearances. It doesn't get the credit it deserves because it's a great sounding instrument, but its main role is to play The Hitmaker's Body Double.
