Repairs were needed quite often as Vaughan would break whammy bars and wear down frets on a regular basis.
Charley Wirz and Rene Martinez are credited with most of the repairs for Stevie’s instruments.
After Stevie Ray’s death, Rene replaced the new neck with Number One’s original and the guitar was given back to Stevie’s family. If you look closely at the photo, you can see Jimmie Vaughan’s guitar behind Number One.
Stevie had already had a loaner guitar from Hennig, who was pleased to trade it for Cross’ guitar since it was in much better condition.Because of frequent refretting, the original neck became unplayable by the late ‘80’s and was swapped with the neck of another guitar in Vaughan’s stable, Scotch.Ironically, just a month before his death, a piece of stage rigging fell on Number One and snapped the neck at the headstock.Perimeter Drive, Suite 100SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA 85255, U.
