Adrian Vandenberg: “At 16 you think if you’ve got a good guitar and a good amp, you’re going to sound like Jimi Hendrix!”

by GuitarDomain

What was the first serious guitar you bought with your own money?

“It was a Fender Telecaster and it was probably in the mid-’70s. I couldn’t afford a Stratocaster at the time, but I did have a Marshall amp. But with the Telecaster, even though I could put a distortion unit between the guitar and the amp, it didn’t sound anything like what I was hearing from Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton and all the great players, but I got along with it.
