Austin City Gift Baskets recently acquired Stevie Ray Vaughan’s famous musical note guitar strap at auction in order to bring the renowned guitar strap back home to Austin where it belongs. Rob was very fortunate to have seen SRV perform many times throughout Austin as the city’s legendary bluesman made his claim to fame. He has collected SRV ticket stubs, autographs and assorted memorabilia over the years.
Like many of us who call Austin home, most have a strong appreciation for the late performer’s talent and legacy. This is SRV’s very first original, #1 music note guitar strap that he literally used night after night while making a name for himself throughout Austin and abroad. Needless to say, SRV made the Earth III musical note strap famous and these straps are still being sold today almost 30 years after SRV’s untimely passing
The strap was originally purchased at the historic “Ray Hennig’s Heart of Texas Music” on South Lamar by SRV’s long-time friend Cutter Brandenburg who met SRV when he was only 14 years old and literally drove him to his gigs in Austin and throughout Texas. It was up for auction after an estate sale and was shipped to us from California.
Austin City Gift Baskets plans on putting this infamous strap on display throughout Austin on occasion so that other Austinites can enjoy and appreciate it as well.
A special edition “SRV Tribute Basket” will be offered for a limited time.
