Rumble Seat Music is honored to offer this iconic Fender Stratocaster for sale. Immortalized on the cover of Rick Derringer’s 1973 album All American Boy featuring the hit song Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo, this guitar started life as a 1959 Sunburst Stratocaster. It was owned by John Hammond who gifted this instrument to Bob Dylan around the time he was recording his landmark record Highway 61 Revisited with Blues guitar giant Mike Bloomfield. Bloomfield kept the Strat and had it painted a metallic purple finish before giving it to another legendary player, Johnny Winter. Winter had the guitar converted to a stop tailpiece and affixed Telecaster style barrel knobs, and commissioned the guitar to be finished in “candy apple red” with a matching headstock. The instrument remained in Winter’s collection for years where it was set up for slide playing and likely used on several recordings. During the photoshoot for the cover of Derringer’s solo album, he borrowed this guitar from Winter and forever became associated with this legendary instrument. This guitar has made the rounds amongst countless guitar heroes and includes a thorough write up from a 1994 copy of Vintage Guitar magazine. This is a true piece of rock n’ roll history and a fantastic playing and sounding instrument, as well! Few guitars can tie together so many iconic players making this a truly exceptional opportunity for any collector! EXC w/HSC Call for Price
