Loving the blues and determined to honor them in their truest form, Slim finds himself in the alternate world of Tejas, where the music he cherishes assumes the form of a pearl-gray Strat, sought by the evil T-Bone Pickens who would rechannel the Strat'spowers for his own purposes

Blackwell North Amer
Slim's a Texas bluesman of a certain age, down on his luck and just about broke - but hey, that's what the blues are all about. He loves his music: "Not the popular blues, homogenized, synthesized, and zombilized; but the real down-home gut-bucket blues." Then one day the music loves him back.
In a single hot burst of lightning that comes straight up out of the ground, Slim finds himself in Tejas. It's a little bit magic and a whole lot different, but the blues are the same.
And the blues - manifest here in the form of a maple-necked, pearl-gray Fender Stratocaster with blue-chrome pickups, a.k.a. The Gutbucket - need him and need him bad. The Strat's fallen into the hands of T-Bone Pickens and his Vipers, who want to suck up all its power and turn it to evil.
Slim's off and running on the Gutbucket Quest, with the help of his new mentor, rhythm guitarist Progress T. Hornsby, and a purely unstoppable blues singer named Nadine.
