It's just a waste. It has to be the guitar you're playing, so you'll want to play a good quality guitar. Why would you want to smash a good guitar?

If it's really really old, it's probably worth even more then a brand new Walmart or something guitar..

For it to be up to the level intensity you want, you need to make sure the audience knows who you are. There's nothing worse than a no-name opening band smashing their guitar for the finale of their 3-song set, because no one gives a ****. If you're a moderately popular band in your area, go for it.

And make sure you smash the guitar. I've seen bands not be able to break them before and it's pathetic and takes all the attention off of your set and how you've played.

When Muse first started when they were young they had a battle of the bands.
They basically won it because of their "rock" attitude, trashing guitars after their performance and knocking down the drum kit.

Should be noted that the instruments belonged to the venue, not them
But it got them rich so now they can trash whatever they like on stage and not care.

Children in the world are starving and many people own nothing, not even a roof over their head or a rag on their back. It's a waste of resources, a starving Ethiopian could've had that guitar.

doubt he'd smash his guitars now. they're all custom made by manson specifically for him.

instead he just 'dances' around going mental...

still damn cool.

No. You can only smash your guitar if you can afford to replace it, and if the feeling is right. Like if I'm ever famous and do a totally awesome solo or something and the last song is really powerful, I'll be sure to throw my guitar at then drums or the ground. Also, it prevents encores.
#23
I wouldn't smash my guitars. Not even if I was famous to the point where I could do it on a daily basis. A Guitar is like a peice of art... why burn a painting?

Just play with an awesome guitar, then go behind the huge marshallstack where you hid a crappy guitar and smash that one.
People are bastards. Bastardcoated bastards with bastardfilling.

No, and anybody who says it's cool is a dumbass.

Waisting good money that could be used for charity and good causes on guitars just to smash is pathetic and stupid. I lose my respect for any guitarist who decides to smash his/her instrument in less than a second.

nirvana did it all the time. they would use good guitars for most of the songs, and then for the last song they would play a POS $20 strat knoff of and bust it to bits. i mean that would be the way to go. its only a cheap strat!
