In years past there were plenty of times that after a frustrating gig I wanted to smash a guitar, but never did. However, in the late '70's I had a band and we came up with the idea of occasionally smashing some cheap garage sale special. Though it was a progressive country band, we did a surf medley to 'break things up' so to speak and a smash was a perfect closer. With a little advance notice, you'd be amazed at how many people turn out. Right away I found out electrics are really hard and dangerous to smash, so a steel stringed acoustic with a soundhole DeArmond pickup was preferred way to go. Actually, there weren't that many, but we got a lot of mileage out of it.
