Share your Trigger photo stories here - tell other fans about Willie Nelson's World Famous Guitar.

Every Willie fan on the planet knows about Trigger. We thought posting some Trigger photo stories here on the website would be fun.

If you've ever seen Willie play you've seen his well worn companion that produces that great (and immediately identifiable) sound. I'll bet you might have even taken a picture of Trigger.

So don't be too bashful to upload your photos or stories aabout Trigger. Other fans will love to see and read them.

Also, if you don't have a Trigger photo, feel free to tell any story you may have about Willie Nelson's workhorse guitar.

Do you have a great photo of Trigger?

No photos? How about a good story about Trigger or perhaps the famous guitar's guardian, "Tuning Tom"? If so, share them with other Willie fans...
