I'm curious. Everyone has seen or heard of Willie Nelson's guitar, 'trigger'. I'd like to see some beat-up, worn out, and high mileage guitars. Let see the Dings, Chips, holes, worn off finish etc etc. Some of the dings and chips might have stories too!

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

^ Is the neck completely broken off that one?

Anyway, this thread just reminded me of Seasick Steve and his 3-string guitar:


Yep, the neck is totally seperated from the body; I guess now might be a good time to wonder if It's repairable, and how much (and the difficulty of the) work would need to go into it?

Most of those thousands have been playing for less than six months. I'll put some lovely images of my weather-beaten Sigma up when I get a moment.

The Willie Nelson and Tommy Emmanuel guitars came into mind. Tommy's, not so much, but it's been well-loved over the years.

Mine's pretty beat up, but it's not spectacular. Might post pictures later...

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

This is the Soccer-Ball guitar or by it's official designation the "First Act Discovery FG 170". I bought this as a joke. I had a customer come in with it and we had a chuckle. I said, "I'll give you 10 bucks for it." He agreed and I took out my wallet to realize that I only had 8 on me. He took the 8 and we sealed the deal.

It's been at my place for a long time and it takes a pounding. Everyone plays this thing! It gets played at least once a day. They walk past the Martin, past the Hummingbird copy, and go straight for the soccer ball and start playing. It's been played, dragged, banged and tossed about so much that I'm amazed it's survived. It's been attacked by two three year olds on a regular basis. Played at parties and everyone plays dueling banjos on this thing.

Not up there with the road beaten big boys but it deserves an honorable mention.
