What happens when you ask to be buried with your Fender Telecaster, proudly made in Fullerton? You tempt people into robbing your grave. That's what happened in Wisconsin, when a cemetery worker "allegedly removed a valuable Fender guitar from the casket of a 67-year-old Army veteran who died last week and had told family members that he wanted to be buried with the instrument, which was his 'pride and joy,' according to court records."
