    A couple of months back, loading out after a gig one of my guitars slipped out of the gig bag I was carrying it in (didn't do the zip up properly, still feel massivley stupid for doing it).

    It faceplanted straight on to the concrete floor, had two very noticeable chips at the tail end as a result. I was pretty gutted at the time, but the damage doesn't really bug me now.

      I'm usually a bit gutted the first few times a guitar gets a ding, particularly if it's bad enough to see without knowing where to look. The good thing is that my Jazzmaster was already well and truly "reliced" before I got it, and my Telecaster, which was new when I bought it, has had 10 years of gigging and general use, so it's so dinged up already that I'm past caring. There's a couple of acoustics around the house, but they're both pretty beat up too.

      My G&L (30th birthday present from my wife) is still pretty much mint, so I'd probably be annoyed if I damaged that. If I did it in some stupid way at home I'd probably be more pissed than if I did it in the middle of a gig.

                        The only guitar I baby is my Taylor DN3. But I babied it too much i realized, and didn't play it much. It's meant to be played, so it's out of its case now. I'm still cautious with it, and it's out of reach of the kiddos doing much damage to it. But it should get more use now, dings will happen I guess.

                          I was hoping you'd be a smart ass about your new Tele, would have been a good .
                          How's it going btw? Still loving it?

                            First chip on a new guitar, a bit. After that, don't care anymore.

                            Second-hand guitars, couldn't care less: the more the merrier.


                            This.

                            The only guitar I baby is a 1918 Martin O-18. No one is allowed to touch it or point at it even.

                              This. I'm very selective about who plays my guitars until I put the first scratch or ding in the finish.
