FRETS.NET

So, it seems to me that we might have a thread sharing amusing (or not) war stories (horror stories??) we have encountered. Here's mine:

It has been very cold in Minneapolis for the last month or so. In the last 2 weeks it has often been near or below zero. Yesterday a guy comes in with a Martin case and asks us to look at it. As we always do, Conrad felt the case which was very cold (it was about 5 at the time) and so he asked if the guitar had been in the trunk of his car. Answer - "YES". So, Conrad said, "How Long?" Answer - "A couple of weeks." Enough said.
