In October 1992 Pearl Jam gave the autographed guitar to Ben Hardy said his ailing brother during a trip arranged by the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Josh died three months later. The guitar was Ben's prized possession until early Dec when some asshole stole it!
Thankfully police recovered the stolen idem - but the jerks (who are awaiting conviction) had sanded off the signatures! WTF??
This (among other things) is why you don't steal!
You never know the real value of something that belongs to someone else.
