Cray. I wonder what/ how that happened. Who was involved? etc.

This should be a board game... like Clue or something.

If no one painted over it or anything, i'm kinda surprised it wasn't resurfaced sooner

REGARDLESS, i guess this could also function as his big "no but now the music will be good" gimmick of 2019, vs last year's Jimmy & Jamie coming back (which, arguably, was a better argument)

Naturally, I will stick around to see what happens. but it's cool that the thing has finally been returned

Billy Corgan stated on his facebook page(RIP) that he would pay $20,000 No Questions Asked for the return of his "GISH" Stratocaster guitar.(pictured above) At the time of its disappearance the guitar was Yellow with hand painted multi-colored "flowers"

I guess Corgan sold his other million dollar guitar to be able to buy it back...

I wonder if he paid the $20k he promised.

Billy + Jimmy + James + Gish Strat = the next big comeback?

I bought this guitar around 1989 or 1990 because I needed a spare for playing live, and wanted an almost identical sound to go with my main one at the time which was an early 70's Strat (yellow that I hand painted). THAT guitar was the featured guitar on Gish and was probably my favourite guitar ever. It was stolen in 1992 out the back door of St. Andrews Hall in Detroit and has never resurfaced. I would still pay good $ to get that guitar back, no questions asked. So THIS guitar is the last remnant of that period of my life, and I really cherish it. It was painted ala Eric Clapton's cream era guitar by my friend crazy Nick. As you can see it's taken a bit of a beating back from a time when I used to throw my guitars around like candy. The history of this guitar is its a 1978 'bullet' Strat with the flat pickups (as opposed to the staggered pole pieces). I preferred these pickups at that time because it allowed for maximum gain by running the pickups up really close to the strings. This guitar does have some recording history of note, as it was the guitar I would use for solos as it seemed to just have more cut than the main one. So all the solos on Gish were done with this guitar. It has a vicious attack as you can hear on songs like 'Tristessa', 'I Am One', 'Rhinocerous', and 'Siva'. I'm fixing this guitar up now and I hope to use it again soon. I've started using more old-school amplification, like my 1969 Marshall Super Tremolo head (currently ailing) so guitars with this kind of cut are what I'm looking for. It makes me laugh that I'm sort of back to where I started when it comes to gain and attack. I see the BC Dimarzio pickups as more the modern application of gain, and the older type pickups as a more vintage approach to the use of gain.

Clearly James had it all this time and kept it hidden to piss off Billy. Now that they are friends again he decided to reunite Billy and his guitar.
