This was my girlfriend (and eventual Wife’s) guitar. I started borrowing it back in 1997, as I didn’t have an acoustic, and wanted to try some acoustic stuff. I ended up writing and tracking the song ‘Resist, Destroy, Resist!’ with it.

When we moved in together, it was around, and so I ended up tracking all of ‘Silence Is Suicide’ with it, before eventually deciding that I needed a ‘better’ guitar.

In retrospect, this was a very decent guitar, had great dynamics to it, as the silence is suicide stuff demanded, and was actually easier to record than the Martin that replaced it.
