    Description

    Buddy Holly Banjo Strings. Buddy Holly was an avid Bluegrass fan and banjo player, and as a youth he and pal Bob Montgomery played for school assemblies and local radio shows as a "Western and Bop" Country duo called "Buddy and Bob." He unfortunately never played the instrument on any of his recordings. Featured here are two Black Diamond brand tenor banjo strings, steel, that belonged to Holly. The strings are in like-new condition and come in the original box, which shows only the faintest wear to the edges. Saved by Maria Elena, here is a chance to own a rare piece of Rock & Roll history. With COA from Maria Elena Holly.
