Rascal Publishing is excited to share this tidbit of early rock-n-roll history with the Rascal Nation – a photo that was almost lost to time. Pictured is a young Bob Montgomery holding the Gibson J200 guitar hand-picked for him by his best friend in high school, Buddy Holly. the original photo was littered with little white specks, blotches of blue, and some other weird stuff that detracted from this historic image. Behind Bob stands his proud parents, “Mimi” and Royce Montgomery, at their Lubbock home. Bob surely cherished that gift !
