Willie Nelson bought Trigger sight unseen in 1969 from Shot Jackson in Nashville according to this article from Texas Monthly.
"The guitar—a Martin N-20 classical, serial number 242830—was a gorgeous instrument, with a warm, sweet tone and a pretty “mellow yellow” coloring. The top was made of Sitka spruce, which came from the Pacific Northwest; the back and sides were Brazilian rosewood. The fretboard and bridge were ebony from Africa, and the neck was mahogany from the Amazon basin. The brass tuning pegs came from Germany."
Willie has said, “Roy Rogers had a horse named Trigger. I figured, this is my horse!”

The highest profile user of this amp is Willie Nelson. Willie has a Baldwin pickup on his Martin that matches this amp. I found near mint example with cover and footswitch in rural TN. Great sounding amp.
