The "Glastonbury" guitar was played by Nico Constantine during the Lady Gaga Fame Ball World Tour, from June until September 2009. The guitar was first played live at Gaga's career-defining performance at Glastonbury on June 26, 2009, and was played throughout the tour by Nico, then Gaga's guitarist and musical director, who had earlier also played on her demos. The guitar is a 2008 Les Paul Standard, Made In USA in 2009, serial number 005790576 (made at Nashville Plant, TN, February 26, 2009, production number 276). Not just another collector's item, the guitar will now be dutifully played by yours truly.

Gagafrontrow is pleased to present a letter sent by a then 19-year old Stefani Germanotta to Mr. Bob Leone at the Songwriters Hall of Fame who was soon thereafter to become her first personal manager. The letter was sent some time around December 2005. Mr. Leone became Stefani's manager in March 2006.
