How on earth did they slip this one through?
Also while I was in Bangkok, I did wonder about the temporary insanity of the CF Martin Guitar Company (of Nazareth Pennsylvania lest we get confused) in their production of the Felix The Cat range of steel strings.
How on earth did the dreamer-upper of this perversion ever convince Charles Friedrick IV to manufacture them? There were about 4 of them in the shop window at Music Connection at Siam Paragon – dusty and dejected looking outrages against the Martin traditional image and being sold off at bargain bin clearance sale 2-for-1 prices. If any of you are deranged Martin obsessives you can pick them up for a couple of groats down there.
Here’s a picture of one of them. I couldn’t be bothered to track down the rest, but let’s just leave it at ‘they were all ugly’.
