An interesting bit of information I came across on the site thisdayinmusic.com -- "1969, Police in Moscow reported that thousands of public phone booths had been vandalised after thieves were stealing parts of the phones to convert their acoustic guitars to electric. A feature in a Russian youth magazine had shown details on how to do this."
I had no idea that was even possible. And while I don't support vandalism, I appreciate the ingenuity involved in converting an acoustic guitar using parts from a telephone.
