I can see that, but I don't want to.

Look, let's state the obvious. That is the definitive "player's guitar", since it famously has more playing wear than any other known instrument played by a famous person, and it is a very nice sweet sounding guitar.

But the bottom line is, WILLIE is a great player, who could generate great sound out of just about any quarter-decent box. Because he cares about every note he picks.

And yes, even when you're bankrupt, you get to keep the basic tools of your trade. If the IRS let him keep it because they thought it was a worthless piece of wornout goods, they hadn't a clue what Bill Monroe's destroyed-and-reglued together mandolin would eventually sell for.
