Another special guitar that fans appreciate and collectors would love to have, is the 1974 Guild
accoustic guitar that Schon used when he wrote "Patiently" with former Journey singer Steve Perry.
It was their first song that they worked on together. Schon pointed out on twitter that this guitar was
also used to write the song "Wheel In the Sky."
Schon posted on Facebook:
"This Guild acoustic guitar has quite a history. It was my travel room guitar a lot of the time used mainly to write on but then ended up in the studio and many live performances with Journey Infinity /Evolution /Departure & Escape
Schon commented about another amazing guitar.
"This guitar that’s also up for auction is the guitar that was on #1 single “When you love a Woman” and used exclusively on the last album we did with Steve Perry “Trial by Fire” I just changed from 3 humbucker’s to 2 ."
