"Tonight, or perhaps into the morrow, after a few drinks, some chocolate, and constructing my last Italy Blog post, I will list the selling of the first guitar I owned. I used it on every tour and every record from the self-titled  to 'Bark Like A Dog' . When I fell on it during a show in Houston I cracked off the cable connector and some wood off the body along with it. That night I wired my 50-foot guitar cable into the back of this, my only guitar. Each night I’d wrap the cord around its body and place it in the back of the van. A few months later I fell on it again and broke the lower bridge off and replaced it with a pen cap. Most of the early records were recorded with the guitar in this very condition. Suffice it to say, this guitar means a lot to me. It may never play again, it may still play, I don’t even know. It has become a relic that has represented the struggle of our band from obscurity to seminal-fame status. And I’m selling it for this month's mortgage payment. This one’s for the house!" - John "Jughead" Pierson, johnjugheadpierson.blogspot.commore
