Self-taught guitar prodigy Kenny Wayne Shepherd was mastering his craft at an age when most kids are still focused on recess. And with his early start, Shepherd has had the time to cultivate quite the guitar collection. Boasting three great loves: cars, guitars and music, we caught up with Kenny at home to learn about #2: his famed Fender Stratocasters. Did you know that his 1961 strat was replicated by Fender all the way down to the tiniest scratch? Do you know why his signature guitar features racing stripes? Watch the walk-through below to learn all that and more, and to see what else he's got in his collection.
