"Holley started making demo recordings in 1954 with friends including Sonny Curtis, Larry Welborn and future Crickets drummer Jerry Allison. A pivotal moment came on Feb. 13, 1955, when Buddy and Bob opened for [Elvis Presley](http://equipboard.com/pros/elvis-presley) at the Fair Park Coliseum in Lubbock. Another pivotal moment came a couple months later, on April 23, 1955, when Holley walked into Adair Music in Lubbock and traded his first electric guitar to salesman Clyde Hankins for a brand-new Fender Stratocaster (priced at $305)." via [Fender](http://www.fender.com/news/rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame-flashback-buddy-holly/)more
