STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN
CUSTOM STRATOCASTER 1973
This Fender Stratocaster was used by Stevie Ray Vaughan for much of his career. Dubbed "Number One" and "First Wife" by Stevie, the guitar was used on all of Double Trouble's studio albums.
Stevie Ray acquired the guitar from the owner of an Austin, Texas music shop in 1973. The guitar was "rebuilt more times than a custom Chevy," according to a 1983 Dallas Morning News article written about Stevie as he was breaking onto the national music scene. At the time of his death in 1990, Stevie was working with Fender Musical Instruments to create a reproduction "signature model" of Number One. The reproduction became commercially available in 1992.
"Number One" was exhibited for the first time since Vaughan's death in the Bullock Museum's 2012 original exhibtion, Texas Music Roadtrip. It was on display in the exhibition Pride & Joy: The Texas Blues of Stevie Ray Vaughan through July 23rd, 2017.

G6136I BONO IRISH FALCON - EBONY FINGERBOARD
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame quartet U2 is undeniably one of the biggest bands on the planet, equally known for their sweeping sound as for their visionary passion and idealistic sense of purpose.
With Bono's soulful, grandiose cry, the Edge's intricately textured guitar parts, and the steady propulsion of bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, U2's sound is instantly recognizable and much-imitated. It all began in 1976 when Mullen pinned a 'musicians wanted' ad to the notice board at Dublin's Temple Mount School. The four teenagers, who initially called themselves Feedback, rehearsed in Larry's Dublin kitchen. Inspired by punk, Feedback became the Hype and then U2, and were soon building a local reputation based on the passion for their performances.
With each album and concert since, the Irish quartet has endeavored to create music of lasting worth and substance. And 40 years into their groundbreaking career, U2 continues to dominate with record-setting tours such as the ZooTV (1992-93), PopMart (1997-98) and U2 360° (2009-11) taking the world by storm. The band also sent shockwaves throughout the music industry in 2014 with the surprise release of their first album in five years, Songs of Innocence, for free via iTunes.
Bono’s high-profile work for social causes like third world debt relief, world hunger and AIDS and U2’s participation in such historic rock-for-charity events as Live Aid and Amnesty International’s Conspiracy of Hope tour have served as a beacon for positive change in the world of music.
