The rising country star reveals which legendary picker recently built her a "Mary Kaye" Strat clone, as well as why she started painting guitars.

Lindsay Ell received this relic’d Strat as a gift from Brad Paisley after spending some time out on the road opening for him. Paisley asked her what her dream guitar would be and worked to create a replica of a ’57 “Mary Kay” Strat. Paisley contacted Fender to get all the period-correct parts and then assembled and relic’d the guitar himself. She named it “Herbert” since its color reminded her of sherbet.

But this time out the Explorer offers access to six additional waveforms that build on an already expansive modulation vocabulary.
