    Eric Tessmer's 59 Strat is about as beat as any solid body guitar I've seen.

    Rory Gallagher comes to mind with the replaced tuner.
    Jeff's '54 Oxblood, Tele and Stratocaster were already destroyed just a few years later.

    Hendrix, Townsend, and Blackmore; even their amps never had a chance to make it to the next show. lol
