Yeah, they're supposed to distort a little. I wash mine all the time (I have 4 I rotate through pretty regularly) and no complaints. I also wanted something slightly oversized and slouchy, and shryke, just judging by the pics you've posted, I'm guessing that's not your ideal fit.
i wish i did it for a living. i was trying to point out that i'm NOT good enough to do it professionally. haha. i think just about every guitar player has that reaction to SRV though. the guy was insane. and i think he had the strongest hands on the planet.
