Matt Pike and his Les Paul at SXSW 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
Matt Pike

Matt Pike of High on Fire and Sleep just encountered some pretty terrible news:

Matt Pike's Les Paul guitar has been stolen from storage in a North Bay studio. Please be on the lookout.

Details of the guitar:
1992 Les Paul Standard, tobacco burst finish.
Serial number 92462499.
Lace "Pike" signature pickups installed.
The 70's style strap has no strap locks, it's screwed directly to the guitar with fender washers.
The truss rod cover on the headstock is says "Jimmy" in script letters.
The SKB case has "pike" stenciled in 3" white old english letters on the lower left corner.
There is a label on top that says "TEMPEST".

This guitar is legendary and has been used in both High On Fire and Sleep.

If you see this guitar listed on eBay, Craig's List, a web classified forum, pawn shop, etc, please contact us immediately at info@weedian.com or info@thersegroup.com

Note: there are many Tobacco burst Les Paul's out there, please contact us if you see this specific one only.

Best of luck to Matt, and we hope he recovers the guitar.

2:59 hasn't figured out how the world really works yet.

Example #: This guitar is gone. GONE. As in "For-fucking-ever". Somewhere there's some methed out white trash peckerwood or some blue gum nigger sitting somewhere strumming the shit out of this guitar with his scab covered hands, and HAPPY AS HELL.

The only funny or salient comment here is 3:48's. Pike's a phenomenal guitarist but that's some funny shit.

This hillbilly sold it for heroin money and then forgot about it .

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2012 5:22 PM

the cool thing is, all you faggots are at work talking shit & this guy gets paid to play music.

and i dont even like ANY of his bands.

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2012 5:44 PM

^ i agree... The only 3 jobs that are any good are:
1)-musician in a rock and roll band.
2)-race car driver for ferrari.
3)-chef at a hummus kitchen.

5:44, one look at Matt's teeth would've told you he isn't getting "paid". Also, don't have a job, so NUHH!


LULZ@ U, fucking sausage!

This junkie is running a scam.

It's weird to see hummus jokes here, considering that they not only come from only the scarves, but that usually in threads like these, the scarves just strictly churn out all the rehashed "sausage" "jokes" and leave all the rehashed hummus "jokes" for the threads with music more suited for their, um... tastes. Good night Cleveland.

Hey you dumb hipsters with the hummus and sausage comments..go back to Bedford Ave and your TV on the Radio and shut the fuck up. You aren't clever, you aren't funny, and you're definitely too scared to ever say any kind of sausage comments to any of the people's faces you troll about. Weaklings.

I wish the hipsters would just go back to their original homes in the midwest.nevermind brooklyn

No doubt it sucks he lost it. It's his; I don't know his financial situation, or its emotional value. But its not that great of a value. The early 90's were a weak time for gibson... None of you faggots would know that neway, keep talking shit about hummus and the midwest....noobz

Posted by Anonymous | September 1, 2012 1:58 AM

^ Spoken like a true knowledgeless sausage. The early to late 90's are "considered" a great time for Gibson Les Pauls. I put considered in quotes because of how stupid it is to believe that the year of manufacture has anything to do with a great sounding guitar.

You know how people go on and on about vintage '59 Les Paul Standards? *pssst* (wispering) *some of 'em sound like ass*. But don't tell that to the fucking retards who pay $250,000+ for 'em. Believe me. I used to work in a shop in L.A. that specialized in vintage electrics. For every one that kicked you in the balls there were three that should've been dismantled with an axe. Straight up.

In all sincerity this bums me the fuck out...now everyone stand in line and wait for your turn to give me a wedgie. The internet has taught me that I deserve it for caring about things and people and stuff. :(

Sure, Matt has bad teeth. But every dickless hipster bashing him will never get the amount of $$$/weed/head that hes gotten, and there's nothing you pussies can do about it.

$$$$ - lulz

head - who knows? between hillbilly chicks and the st. vitus glory hole....

weed - what kind of loser is wanting for weed?
