"And then I got a gig with Iggy in ’79, and I went out and bought a Fender ’61 Precision I saw in a store; played it; loved it, and I’ve never really picked up another guitar, you know—I’ve still got it, 30 years out. Although, the only thing is that it’s worth a lot of money now, and if we do small shows I’m worried about it getting thieved."
So goes Glen Matlock in a 2009 October article for Fender.
"The old Precision, it does what it says on it—it’s precise. It’s simple and straightforward, and that’s kind of what punk’s all about, really, I think, musically."
