Another little gem . . .
Buddy Holly bought this Hofner guitar when he toured the UK in the 50s. At the end of the tour he presented it to none other than Des O Connor who was the tour compere.
Recently Mick refurbished and set up the instrument which has since been shipped out to the USA where it happily resides in The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation Museum.
