how do you treat your guitar or bass? are you one of those people who always puts it back in the case, leave it on the bed, or just drop it(just kidding)? do take extra care of your instrument?
#2
I like it when it falls off my bed and hits the headstock just right so it is perfectly in tune the next time I want to jam.
#3
My $100 acoustic (first guitar), I treat it like crap. Let it fall, hit anything or whatever..

But my Epi LP, I'm veeeeeeeeeeeeery careful with it
#5
I'm not particularly careful with any of them anymore. Whenever I get my next guitar, though (which will definitely be over $1000, maybe over$2000), I'll be paranoid with it. I'm completely horrified at the thought of any damage to any guitar I want.
#8
ehhh im not great with them i will admit. its not that i dont care about them its just that it seems no matter what i do i hit them on something or the strap comes undone and it falls off so im not extremely careful

Same here. I do treat my instruments very well though, although I tend to bump into shit.

I have no opinion on this matter.

i leave my les paul laying around but with the neck/head supported, maybe on the couch arom or on my bed. i've been putting it back in the case lately cause i noticed the finish on the underside of the neck on the high frets starting to crack slightly :\ don't wanna take any chances. my music man i just throw on the bed or wherever. i've crashed the headstock off lots of things with that and it's tough.

I just put them back on the stands and hang one on the wall also dust them off once in while.
#14
my stagg guitar(who's ever heard of that crappy brand?) hits anything and i don't worry, at night i leave it on the floor. but my ibanez, oh ho ho, it never touches anything but my hands or its case.

Quote by halvies
im pretty good with mine, i'll leave it resting up against the couch or hanging it back up. but when im at the comp, it often taps/hits the desk


Same here, I tend to not pay attention to it much and when I swing the chair around it sometimes taps the desk.

I let it get all dusty and gross with dead skin, I've dropped it on multiple occasions, lean it up against things, and I've broken the tuners on it before. And I let children play with it.

I love it, but it's just a tool.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I have always been one of these people who doesn't give a **** if something is scratched. I can guarantee you that if I had a Ferrari and it got a few scratches or chips on it I wouldn't really care. I am that way with my Les Paul, so what it gets a few dings and dents, still sounds awesome, I am a fan of the worn/ old/ beat up look anyway when it comes to guitars.

have you ever actually sat in a ferarri? i have and was afraid to even close the door thinking i would break it.
#22
I make sure I'm careful with my Gibson, never hits anything, never drop it.

My strat, eeehhh. not so much

#23
My classical I treat with a lot of respect. I clean it, make sure it doesn't get banged on anything, I even take pictures of it.
But my cheap acoustic yeah I let it hit the ground now and then.
I never use the cases unless I'm taking the guitars out of the house though...
If it was in the case I'd be lazy to take it out of the case each time I want to play. I prefer having it lying around calling to me

My acoustic is from 1976 and was beat up as hell when I bought it, so I don't even bother taking care of it beyond making sure nothing breaks. I'm a little more careful with my electrics, but I don't sweat dings or scratches or things. Generally, I'm alright as long as nothing snaps off or cracks.

Mines a champ I must admit. I don't intend to harm it but I carry it around with me a lot and always manage to bump it. The headstock has at least 5 chips, and there's even a little dent on the back of the neck. It sort of adds character since it's just a relatively cheap starter anyway.

What? They are very well made cars, if you thought closing the door was going to break it you underestimate Ferrari craftsmanship or you are very paranoid. You're more likely to break the door on you buddies civic several times over.

When I used to have my acoustic, I would clean the dust off of it almost every 2 days, and wash it clean at least once a week. With my new Omen 6 FR, I'm pretty good with that as well, but not as good as I was with my acoustic. My acoustic is crappier/cheaper as well.

no, but if it was mine I really wouldn't care what I did to it, if it were someone else's then of course I would be careful, just as I am when I play someone else's guitar.
#29
I take good care of my guitars... but I don't take extra care of them. Like I think I've polished each of them only once ever. But I do my best to avoid things like bumping them into stuff.

it's just knowing that it's a $300,000 car. most people will never even see one let alone sit in one like i did.
#31
I have no stand. And being the clumsy girl I am, I usually lean it up against something and knock it down fifteen seconds later.

So no, I really dont exactly treat it well but I try. ]:

im pretty careful with mine.

i put it on the wall when im not using it.

i even bring a guitar stand to band practice so i dont have to lean it against something.

I treat it pretty well, but I'm not massively concerned, I don't want it to get damaged, and throw a hissy fit the moment it does get damaged, but I realise that it's inevitable and adds to the character.

I used to be a lot more careful with my gear. Now I don't have as huge a problem if I tap it off the wall or anything. Dings give it character!

I went to a metal gig tonight, and this band called Short Line Hero played. The bassist was crazy, and at one point he went to do a guitar flip and ripped the strap button right out of the bass. It obviously smacked off the ground.

I lol'd.
