Bugsy 1870's Martin destroyed for a movie (73* d) RE: 1870's Martin destroyed for a movie 13 Feb 16

I was talking to Paul Duff, Luthier and Mandolin player with Bluegrass Parkway on Friday, and he was telling us a story about Bill Monroe and how someone smashed one of his precious Mandolins to smithereens. Aparantly, it was sent back to Gibson and they managed to piece it together again.
That was back in the '30's, and if Gibson could do it Surely CF Martin could also?

Just a thought
