Had my guitar smashed while busking...

newsreport by Edinburgh Live 


Today the worst thing that could have happened happened. Someone came up while I was busking and smashed my guitar. 

The lady was a drunk. Often I don't rise to people coming up and talking nonsense but this lady was pushing it too far. She was in my face swearing and shouting at me. I told her to go away and she wasn't having any of it.  

She grabbed my guitar and smashed it over the ground. I got grabbed by The police intervened she was arrested. But now I'm out of a guitar to busk with for the time being. 

If anyone can give me any help it would be hugely hugely appreciated. The sooner I can get a new guitar the sooner I can go out and busk!

Who I am:

Matt Grant, busker, resident in Edinburgh 

I am the beneficiary of this gofundme 


The funds will be spent on a replacement guitar. the excess will go towards new pieces of kit that have needed replacing for a while. 
The guitar I will buy is a sigma brand costing 400 GDP 
I will also buy a new PA, pedal boards , batteries and Inverters, microphones and leads with the excess. 

The above is for the gofundme staff in particular.
