Nuno Bettencourt Signed Takamine Acoustic

Posted on Sunday, May 1, 2011 in Acoustic, Lonn Friend's Celebrity Signed

This is Lonn Friend’s latest addition to the collection, the Nuno Bettencourt signed Takamine acoustic guitar. Included is a letter of authenticity attesting that it was indeed one of his own collection and he played it on both stage and in studio. Lonn is also including the Platinum disc of Extreme’s Pornografitti that he received 20 years ago, also signed, to sweeten the package. Read what Lonn has to say:

“I’ve known Nuno Bettencourt since Extreme released their debut record in 1988.  When Pornograffitti blew up in 1990, I was asked to take part in the taping of their home video, Photograffitti.  Nuno and I have remained friends through thick and thin.  He gave me this Takamine in 2004.  Just recently while rehearsing for the upcoming Rihanna world tour (Nuno is the six-string balls out leader of her live band), he signed the axe and the platinum disc I’ve had since 1991. He remains in my estimation one of the most gifted and perhaps underrated modern rock guitar heroes.”

excerpt from Wikipedia:
