TIL on Christmas eve in 1969, Willie Nelson got a phone call that his house outside Nashville TN caught on fire. Willie came home and rush into the fire. He manged to save his guitar Trigger and one pound of weed. : todayilearned

The whole legend of this guitar is super cool. No guitar on the planet sounds like it, or ever will. It is 100% distinct and if you look at video of Willie over the years, it keeps getting older and more banged up. I imagine it is the most famous guitar in the world.

Willie has refused to allow the hole to be repaired, and he said that other guitars identical to Trigger just don’t sound the same.
