Thread Name: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
Subject: RE: Rick's Old Lowden Rocks
A friend of mine acquired a David Wren (oh, about $2500) guitar previously owned by Bruce Cockburn...for $200. Apparently it had first been badly burned by a campfire, then thrown INTO A LAKE to extinguish it... or something like that.

My friend put a large rather cumbersome looking cedar patch over the big hole in the top, and the guitar still played and sounded great. But looked weird...
