To this day, it is hard to look at a Fender Stratocaster guitar and not think of Buddy Holly. His musical legacy remains unparalleled, but his impact and contribution to launching the Stratocaster will always remain part of Fenders history.
He burst onto the music scene with a 1955 Stratocaster and wrote most of his earliest hits on that guitar. Then, it was stolen. He bought another 1955 Stratocaster. It too was stolen. That original guitar has now been painstakingly reproduced using the original materials, pickups, woods, paint scheme, along with all the nicks and dings from Buddy’s original, and offered as a special 50 piece tribute to one of Rock & Rolls pioneers.
Finally revealed at this year’s NAMM show, only 50 have been made available worldwide which sold out to dealers quickly. We are fortunate to be getting this Masterbuilt, which we will be selling for $8,800 (MSRP of $11,000). We eagerly are waiting for delivery later this month.
To be one of the lucky few, be sure to get a hold of us.
