August 27th 1990 was a sad day for Rock and Blues fans because we lost guitarist extraordinaire Stevie Ray Vaughan in a helicopter crash at only 35 years old.
In a short amount of time Stevie’s playing had elevated him to a legendary status.
Part of the myth of SRV was his Fender Start #1 guitar.
It was looked upon as an instrument akin to King Arthur’s Excalibur sword.
In the video below we take an up close look at Stevie’s #1 guitar as we remember him on the anniversary of his passing.
