Any guitarist's worst nightmare...let alone a store owner...ouch!!! 

Area guitarists like Vince Gill, and Brad Prasley did not escape water damage either -
When the flood came in May -
there was a storage company located close to the river  (bad idea?)
where lots of entertainers kept their gear stored - it got flooded and many guitars were destroyed -
iincluding many there were irreplaceable.

The Opryland complex - hotel, mall....was flooded also-
that happened once before a couple of decades ago - but they rebuilt in the same area
and did not build the levee high enough -

live and learn ?

Gruhn's is one of the most revered guitar stores nationally. What caught my eye was the comment concerning the quality of guitars that were damaged. If Gruhn's says they were good guitars, they were more than likely exceptional instruments of the highest standard or collectability.

It's a shame to lose vintage guitars.  They can't be replaced.   But I think this qualifies a a guitarist's worst nightmare:
