So just as an aside, on another (music related) board I frequent, there was a thread about Bill Monroe's Lloyd Loar mandolin that was once smashed with a fireplace poker and who did the act. Along with that people offered stories about how their own instruments were severely damaged.
I'm sure you can see what's coming next.
In Monroe's case, and most of the others, the culprit is an angry woman. Damn, domestic violence committed by women has to be at least twice as common as that committed by men.
Incidentally, in today's market, a Lloyd Loar mandolin is worth abou $200,000.
