Preacher Dan's delight in a recent Willie Nelson concert got me thinking. It's time to introduce a new category for this blog: Guitars I Dig.
The inaugural guitar is none other than Nelson's beloved, and extremely well-used, "Trigger."
Here is the wiki. The notation concludes with Nelson's quip that he'll retire when Trigger finally falls apart. Given his carpal tunnel troubles, there may well be some gravitas to that statement. I hope not. I'd rather the man and his guitar deliver music for years to come.
If you want your own "Trigger," Martin made a limited edition replica in 1999: The N-20WN. You'll have to do the eBay thang, I guess. And good luck: this one had an asking price of $3,800.
BTW, a Willie Nelson guitar performance is well worth seeing, even on DVD. His styling is always unique, even occasionally, I daresay, bizarre.
