    Hi everyone. I'm Richie, a guitarist and entertainer. I love all the old rock n roll music and of course Buddy Holly. I play instrumental music as well like the shadows Hank Marvin.

    I was wondering would anybody know what gauge of strings Buddy would have used on his Fender Strat back in the day. Would it be a set with a third wound string? I've just ordered a set of strings Cleartone with Buddy's picture on but they come with a plain g string. I'm guessing in the 50s Buddy used strings that only came with a wound g ??? I think plain gs didn't start till the 60s yeah???.

    Thanks Richie Here's a picture of my Strat

    I wish I could tell you but not being a musician myself, I wouldn't know.

    When and where do you perform? Are you in a band?
