Starway MJ-2L

Starway E-100










Pete Shelley of the legendary punk band the Buzzcocks, played a Starway E-100 guitar. This was his first guitar purchased from Woolworths in the UK.


The guitar was damaged at some point with the top part of the body breaking off at the glue joint. Pete continued to play the guitar and actually made the guitar a bit of an icon.


The guitar was used on some of their earliest recordings around Christmas of 1976. These recordings were used for a four-track EP, released in 1977, called Spiral Scratch. The EP was the first punk album to be self-released.
