Welcome Home Mr. Martin Backpacker!

Thursday, January 12, 2006
Mr. Martin Backpacker, my mini guitar/kayak paddle was reunited with his heartbroken owner (me) today. For those of you who are not familiar with the back story, here, I shut my Martin Backpacker guitar in my van's sliding door and chopped its little head off.

Well, I am here to say that miracles do happen, people.

For just under $40, Mr. Martin's head was glued back in place. I have not tuned him up and played him yet, but will do so tonight. He needs some new strings and a bit of loving care, but, he's his old whole self again!

Special thanks to David Martin (no relation) of Third Street Music in Marietta, OH for arranging for Mr. Martin Backpacker's rehabilitation.

Mr. Martin Backpacker once again has his head about him.

You can hardly tell that Mr. Martin Backpacker was abused by his owner.

Third Street Music was "instrumental" in Mr. Martin Backpacker's repair
