"The legendary Guy was using four guitars onstage during a spring 2011 show. Left to right: the Jerry Jones Sitar is used each night for ""Skin Deep,"" his polka-dot is one of the original signature Strats made by Fender for Buddy but only comes out if he breaks a string, Buddy's #1 guitar is a '89 Fender Buddy Guy Signature Strat in cream. He uses Vintage Noiseless pickups and Ernie Ball Slinky .011s. The red Strat on the right is a Fender Custom Shop Strat he brought on tour to mix things up."
