The guitarist of Mike McCready’s favorite new band uses a straightforward setup that proves a swaggering, punk attitude and greasy rock ’n’ roll isn't just a man’s game.

“Shreddy” Petty’s first electric guitar was a red Strat that her dad bought her for Christmas and is called “Old Reliable.” While hitting the road hard over the last few years, it’s proven to be more of a home guitar and she’s upgraded to this Fender American Original ’50s Stratocaster. She is not partial to any brand of strings (although she wasn’t a big fan of the .009s on this Strat), she prefers to play .010s in a heavy-bottom/light-top configuration.
