Stevie Ray Vaughan was notoriously hard on his guitars and they took a beating every show. One of his Fender Stratocasters was dubbed “the most battered Strat in rock history.” The guitar featured a 1963 body and a 1962 rosewood curved fingerboard neck.

Vaughan’s guitars were in constant need of repair, which he brought to Charley’s Guitar Shop in Fallas, Texas. Even though Vaughan was reckless in maintaining his guitars, artists said he could hear every malfunction an instrument would produce.
