    SIGNED EDDIE VEDDER GUITAR EDITION: You'll get the hardcover book, with a bookplate signed and SKETCHED by Tom Tomorrow, AND a one-of-a-kind Harmony Sovereign acoustic guitar generously donated by Eddie Vedder from his personal collection to help us raise these funds!

Also included are photos of him holding it, as well as a two-page handwritten note from him explaining its history. It was used at home and in Hawaii for many years, and the song "Off He Goes" was written on this guitar. Guitar is provided "as is," of course—Ed's note also explains that "the action on this guitar was never great, but the sound was perfect…now the action is even worse cause it's having neck issues, but it will always be an old friend to me." Comes with a soft case.

    This reward also includes all ten Pearl Jam guitar picks: White Futura, Black Futura, White Sparky, Black Sparky, Batmobile, Batgirl, Edved, Mike Backspacer, Stone Backspacer, and ultra-rare Jeff Train Backspacer. Also includes the PDF and six-month email subscription.
