Iconic Instruments: Willie Nelson's Trigger

It’s impossible not to notice it when see it, or recognize it immediately when you hear it, that old guitar — Trigger — that looks like it’s been through battle and could fall apart any second. Willie Nelson’s guitar is as much about the Nelson sound as Willie himself. You’re not really supposed to use a pick on a classical guitar like this, but aren’t we glad Willie does, even if it means he's picked a hole clear through the top?

See how luthiers have managed to keep Trigger playing all these years in this beautiful look at one of the most iconic instruments of the 20th century.
