Trigger: The Story of Willie Nelson’s Amazing Guitar


Named after Roy Roger’s horse, because Willie considers his guitar to to be his steed, Willie bought the guitar in Nashville in 1969 from another guitarist named Shot Jackson. Trigger is a spanish flamenco guitar, made of Sitka spruce from the Pacific Northwest, and shows the career of Willie with its worn hole from finger picking and the signatures of Kris Kristofferson, Gene Autry, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, among dozens of others.
