    Willie Nelson Owned Guitar Signed by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Others. A vintage Japanese-made Kor/Sonic acoustic guitar, serial number 222N, previously owned by Outlaw Country icon Willie Nelson, signed on the body in black felt pen by fellow legendary Country artists Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings (who signs "Ol' Waylon", Kris Kristofferson, Roger Miller, and Rita Coolidge, as well as P.J. Ryan (who inscribes "To Willie"), Ron Richardson, T.F. Micholson, and H. Leopold ("My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys" is written above Leopold's signature in an unknown hand). Guitar was gifted to Buck Jones by Willie, and was left to Buck's girlfriend after his passing. Though it's unknown if this guitar was played by Nelson, it exhibits playwear consistent with other guitars played by the Red Headed Stranger, most notably his beloved Martin, Trigger. Also included with the lot is a red bandana - much like those worn by Nelson - that was wrapped around the neck of the guitar upon consignment, and four color photos of Buck Jones and his girlfriend in the company of Willie and band. Guitar is in Fair condition, with very heavy playwear - including 1.5" x .5" hole below the strings, signatures show some fading, and some crazing to the finish. Hard case included. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
