Before every lover of vintage instruments on the list starts thinking
I'm some horrible, monstrous idiot. I must say that I am not quite the
anarchist I once was. I could not bring myself do that sort of thing now.
It was sort of a "self-test" of my own commitment to doing what
I do . . . that made me do it originally. To destroy an instrument and
deliberately drive away a good part of a paying audience is something
I see as pretty stoopid now.
Actually I wish that I still had that old Martin. It's not an act that I
would recommend to anybody now. It was just a funny story that
the pervious writer's "Honey I Wrecked the Stradivarius Water
Skiing" reminded me of.
