    That is a wrong action, but right-minded thinking...

    That guitar could have helped pay for burial expenses.

    Imagine if someome was buried with a 59 Les Paul 40-50 years ago. What would you do if you knew a loved one who did this. Hire a good lawyer?

    I think the ironic part of the story is how the employee is quoted as "having a respect for fine music instruments" LOL I understand that and he did a great thing but what about having respect for the dead? They make it appear that this didnt event cross the guys mind when he reported the thief.

    Seems like he expressed how much he liked the guitar by telling everyone this the one he would be buried with, they took him literally. I'm guessing it was the girlfriend's decision.

    Now that the guitar is buried with him, it will rise up and haunt the neighborhood. Its name of course is TeleCasper.

    Guitars are like money; only useful to the living.

    You cant take them with you.

    I plan on being cremated. Usable land is a finite resource, also only useful to the living.

    That said, graverobbing is scummy.

    I think the necrothrilliac there who actually stole a guitar from a dead person's casket, should have a box big enough for the twat to play a guitar, give the creep a Wal-Mart First Act guitar & "amp" and throw creepy and his new axe into his new man-cave and bury the box about 20 feet under and tell him you'll let him out when he has all Stevie Ray Vaughan's tunes down pat perfect. Now that's low, but breaking into Ronnie Van Zant's grave site for his Texas High Roller hat with an eastern diamondback rattle snake hide (with rattler) hat band is just plain sacrilegious.

    Buried with it? Heck, I plan to be buried IN it! Dump my ashes in the spacious interior of my R4 Cloud Nine, seal it off with some epoxy, then sell it on the 'Bay...

    I'll bet his playing stinks these days...

    Still he can probably play stairway to heaven backwards 'cause that's decomposing.

    Maybe in the movie version the worker could replace the guitar with a MIM telecaster
    and nobody would ever know?

    It would be a good scene in a movie for the guitar obsessed.
