Just think. Every morning when the toast pops up, you could grab one, hold it up and say, HERE’S A TOAST TO BILL.
That outta start the day out right.

It's obviously a stereo output, but for the life of me I can't figure out how you plug your mandolin into it!

Peter Rowan and Richard Greene of Seatrain (fame?) worked for him in the mid sixties. Not only on stage but on his farm also. Maybe they ate some toast from this machine too.

I like the suggestion that you can clone your own Bill Monroe because the toaster has his DNA.

Although it was not widely known, Bill could play a real hot toaster! He could be seen Jammin on it, but no recordings of that are believed to exist.

actually a different seller. Guess he saw a used toaster go for $300 and figured, why not.

You just grab it by the handle and everything turns out fine.

Just by a casual observation, that is NOT a screwdriver. I would say that is false advertising. LOL if someone bids on that as a screwdriver, guess who is getting screwed.
