Would you take a bullet for your guitar?

Basically what I want to know is if you are a guitarist who cares about their instruments or a guitarist who cares about the music, not what instrument they make it from.

Hendrix vs Page if you will.

Make that "Bellamy vs Page" actually lol.

Hendrix kinda cared about some of his I think.

Nah, it'd add character if it got shot.

If there was an automatic rifle however...

Nah, i'd try to defend myself from the bullets with my guitar then love it that much more if the guitar saved me

Of course Hendrix loved his guitars. Thats why he smashed them after the shows - to show the love.

Interesting!

I think I'd let my guitar get hit, indeed. Have a good story to tell.

If it'd be a really expensive custom shop that I'd waited for for over two years, I might try to catch it with my arm or something... That won't kill ya, will it?

Now THAT would make it vintage. Hehe.
But really, how am I going to play if I get shot? Hmm?

you could lose your arm though, which would suck but would make people laugh behind your back.


I'd let my guitar take the shot.
The cost of the hospital bill would be like at least twice as much as a new/copy guitar. At least in California
Yes, I'm from California, yes I like Hockey, no I do not like the Ducks, yes I like the Kings!

It's just a guitar. It's the player that makes the music and shapes the tone and sound.


and it's more of a Townshend vs. Harrison (George Harrison)

I probably wouldn't take a bullet for it (the chance of a bullet hitting me over my guitar is higher anyway, assuming the guitar is near/on me) but I'd try to keep it from a bullet as good as I could.

I care about my instruments a lot. But I'm fine with gettin' 'em down and dirty when needed, like, I'm fine when a finish gets cracked and dinged, or completely raped (see: Rory Gallagher's strat), but I wouldn't go through more guitars than I do doors.

They would never get to shoot me because I would have smashed their heads in with my guitar anyway.
You just know he's hiding something awesome under there...

..you'd have the 50 Cent of guitars. In the hood. Bro. Etc.

This is a bit of a dumb question.

If you'd give your life for a material possession, you deserve to die.
