"I was in Caracas, Venezuela, one evening and a guy walked up to me in front of a restaurant and said, “I am such a big fan of yours, I would love for you to have this guitar.” So I said, “Well, thank you.” Great, you know? It has the adjustable bridge and is a beautiful guitar. I loved it immediately, and I wrote songs on it right away; I wrote “Bitten By the Wolf,” that wound up on the first Chickenfoot record. I think I wrote “Different Devil,” too, on the new Chickenfoot record. The bridge was a mistake for Gibson, but the guitar is a beautiful example of the magic they can create with their acoustics. I had Gary Brawer put on a new bridge, and man that guitar sounds great – best Gibson acoustic I’ve ever owned."more
