i saw the buddy holly film for the first time last night and am pretty sure they showed him (or rather the actor playing him) playing a stratocaster at the end, in fact i'm certain of it. However for the most part of the film they used a telecaster and a fender jaguar - or jazzmaster, not sure which one, in fact it was a fender "bronco" which is news to me, all of which seem to be 60s/70s models, not 50s ones - neither of which are particularly associated with the man, are they? I can't recall seeing or indeed hearing Buddy ever playing a telecaster...surely it should be even obvious to non-musicians that you have to get the instruments right in the portrayal, so it doesn't say much for the rest of the film does it.

Ill last night so missed it, thought it was on i-Player but find it's the film :cry:

The book they based the film on by John Goldrosen is very good if you can get a copy - mine's dropping to bits I've read it so often

Saw the Arena years ago and it is a great documentary, hope they repeat it later this week as I was looking forward to that.

Listened to lots of Buddy yesterday while I was off work
