I've heard of the machete as precursor to the ukulele. But here's a bayonet story:

I want to buy it just for the story. What a way to add value! If the assailant had used his axe, neither instrument would have survived.

Next time you have a vintage instrument you can't move, shoot it, make up a good story, and add $150 to the price.

Yeah, my Tiny Tenor was once owned by Tiny Tim. In fact, that's how they came up with the name for the Tiny Tenor. Plus, he dinged it live on the Ed Sullivan Show :D
