Items featured in the exhibit include: Several guitars, including Vaughan’s famed “Number One” Fender Stratocaster, are on view alongside artifacts such as poignant early family photographs, original concert posters, random trinkets from touring, stage outfits, handwritten lyrics, exclusive archival concert footage — and his iconic hat and Indian headdress.
