I remember playing a gig with my mint 7VWH (about a year ago) and i did some silly guitar moves and the strap screw came out, the guitar was then drawn to the floor at a speedy pace, it then preceded to bounce across the stage and onto my rock hard boss pedals

The guitar suffered scares down to the wood (2 1" long scraches) and a couple of dents. But since this incedent i play the hell out of this guitar, its rock solid, and i love it . Still looks cool with a few dings.

Yeah, once they're scarred, I find it easier to let loose and not worry about the little dings, dinks, or whatever. I've had my VWH for almost three years now, and it still does'nt have a scratch or any nicks. Also no pick scratches, the plastic is still on the guards. It does however, show a little wear on the upper saddles of the trem. The other night at practice, our singer wanted to play my 90th. So, I let him. Halfway through the tune, I noticed the bottom horn of the guitar was touching the mic stand. WHOA!!! Watch w.t.f. you're doing there pal. No damage occurred, but I quickly took my guitar back.
This also reminds me of my Les Paul incident. A friend wanted to swap his Strat for my Paul, for a couple of days. When I got it back, it had belt buckle indentations on the back. After that, I was much more relaxed with that guitar. This also led to a roadie climbing on stage with it only to whack it against a monitor. A nice one inch gouge, completely through the finish, deep into the wood.

I'm probably the pickiest SOB about this stuff so I'm way careful and I don't have many at all. I tend to spot things on my guitar that most people probably wouldn't spot on theirs. I get over it, though.

Dings, dents and scratches are just par for the course if you're going to play your instruments... I don't much care about the cosmetics, myself; the "looks" of the guitar are important to me (I own a Floral after all), but battle scars just add character... Steve's are beat to hell! and I know this; good friends are harder to come by than good guitars...
