Re: Mike Marshall's Loar
I have always found a very curious disparity between those who insist that even slight mods or even repairs, in some cases, essentially hugely devalue or "desecrate" a vintage instrument... but at the same time apply a totally different set of standards when it comes to, say, Tony Rice's D-28, Sam Bush's "Hoss", or this particular Loar.... all often cited as being amazing instruments, yet have enough "desecrations" between them to deserve an outing on Halloween or Friday 13th
