I was always careful about just everything I owned, even if I did not. And of course, my guitars have always been very precious to me. No matter if expensive or not, I treat them with equal care. I never leave them laying around, they are in from their cases or gig bags, played, and returned into them. No way I let them laying about, to be just knocked down inadvertently. It is just out of respect and worshiping the enchantment they produce when played. I detail them so they always look best. No greasy finger prints, no ding, immaculate like the day they came out of the factory. I can't describe what I felt when looking at Pete's destruction craft. Like someone desecrating his own creativity. Anyway, I maybe obsessive compulsive about my guitars, and I was wondering if you guys were just considering your stringed instruments as mere tools, or noble companions? Look at those using Stradivarius Violins... why should we treat our guitars differently?
