The money clearly is no issue, when you consider Kristen Stewart‘s salary for Twilight and note that most celebrities just buy each other cars and diamonds. Though she could afford to buy Robert Pattinson a Range Rover or a lovely diamond necklace, vintage guitars are a bit more heartfelt. Just a bit. Barely.
While some people might take this as a personal message from K-Stew to R-Patz about his career choice and rumored affair, such as “please take these instruments and pursue this instead because you hanging out with groupies is still better than sluts like Nikki Reed,” I think it’s less complex.
According to US Weekly, the guitars were not easy to to find, one is a 1947 K&F Lap Steel and the other a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster, both Christmas presents from Norman’s Rare Guitars in Tarzana.
Though Pattinson has contributed songs to two movie soundtracks, he seems resistant towards making music for cash, “I’m always playing and recording but I don’t know. People hate when actors become musicians so I’ve been avoiding it.”
