The strap Jeff Tweedy is using on his Gibson J-200 in this photo is one of my custom carved florals. It definitely couldn’t have ended up on a cooler guitar.

Wilco, captured on Impossible Project Polaroid by NPR’s Becky Lettenberger as they performed at a Tiny Desk Concert. She got band members to sign the shot. NPR’s editing the video of their set this week and will get it up as soon as possible! —Sarah
