*Purchased by the vendor from Chandler Guitars in Kew, who were selling the guitar on Jesse Wood’s behalf. The case is spray painted with the initials ‘JW’ and bears a section of duct tape inscribed ‘To Woody’s’. The case handle bears a United Airlines luggage label inscribed with Jesse Wood’s name and a USA hotel address. It is thought that Jesse Wood may have been given this guitar by his father, The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood. Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood are both known as being users of early Music Man Silhouettes, some of which had B-Benders installed. They were used on both the 1989 Album ‘Steel Wheels’ and subsequent world tours
