Miles Zuniga (Fastball) : Guitar
Miles was nice enough to sell me his beloved 1993 Gibson Chet Atkins Tennessean guitar (ser.# 92330474) that he used to record the first three Fastball CDs on. He also toured with this guitar from 1996 to 2000, including appearances on the Conan O' Brian Show and Austin City Limits (4/3/99). This guitar appeared in Fastball's hit video "The Way" (1998) and both video versions of "Out of My Head" (1998). I also got his heavily used road case. Miles handed the guitar over to me on 11/7/04.

This guitar was almost stolen from Miles during a concert in 1995 : LINK Miles mentioned the incident on TV when Fastball were guests on Jay Leno's Tonight Show in 1998.
