Do you look after your Jem?
I just posted a reply on one of the other forums in here and it got me thinking...
I LOVE my old FP, I've had it for nearly 10 years, It's like an old friend but.... I tend to batter my guitars at gigs, hit it with my fists, throttle the whammy bar and generally smash it about the place, this of course has resulted in the fact that over the years, the body of the Jem looks like No-Mans land at the Somme. Don't get me wrong, the neck is mint and I don't DELIBERATLY set out to smash it about... You just get caught up in the show atmosphere... Y'Know? I regularly have the guitar (And my RG 7 string) set up and serviced by my local Luthier so it plays and sounds fantastic!
I just wondered if I were the only one who abuses his axe in this way? Don't get me wrong but I feel like a leper in here because you all seem to take care of your guitars like you would a baby, and I don't.
