Watch Kenny Wayne Shepherd shred acoustic and electric blues on a Fender Acoustasonic Strat

We recently witnessed Daniel Donato and Tyler Bryant face off on a pair of Fender Acoustasonic guitars, with Bryant on a Strat and Donato handling a Tele.

The latest six-stringer to take up the Acoustasonic mantle is blues great Kenny Wayne Shepherd, who puts a Strat model through its paces in the video above.

To demonstrate the tonal versatility of the Acoustasonic, KWS kicks off the proceedings with some down-home acoustic style licks using the guitar’s Slotted-Headstock Rosewood Concert Acoustic setting.

He then flips to a dirty electric tone to rip out some high-octane blues-rock licks.

To up the tastiness of the proceedings, Shepherd is joined by bassist Kevin McCormick and former Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton for the jam session.

And as always, for more Acoustasonic info head over to Fender.
