well.. from my experience, id gotta to say that in general most guitarists are really uptight about this sort of thing. a good number of my friends play guitar and they bitch excessively whenever i fiddle with it.
unless your friend fiddling with your guitar is stupid or has been known to break lots of stuff, then i wouldnt worry about it that much. the strings are made of steel you know :p. but i can totally understand why youd be protective though. a guitar is expensive.
one time i did rape my friends guitar though. i leaned it against an amp and it fell on the pavement.

Seriously, has anyone heard of Sonic Youth? They **** up their guitars and still sound good.

sonic youth also collected their guitars at pawn shops at a time when their models of choice were basically being given away.

it's a lot easier on your conscience to make a homemade 3rd bridge guitar with something you picked up for $150 rather than $1500.

I thought that Lee and Thurston just played behind the bridge of a jazzmaster to get the sound of chiming bells.

depends on the tune. the chiming bell effect isn't going to hurt anything. the 3rd bridge setup is usually created by shoving a screwdriver or butter knife between the strings and the fretboard around the lower frets.

I hated it when a kid I jammed with (great guitarist) would bang the body here and there when changing amp settings and stuff. I told him to stop repeatedly, but he would still do it occasionally.

As long as whoever plays my guitar cares for it, I'm fine with them playing it, but I never hand it out blindly. I'd stow it away or tell people not to bother with it (if they ask why I usually just say something's wrong with it and it needs fixing).

One of my guitars was brutally raped by a friend of mine a few years back.. She was acting like a dumbass, tripped, knocked it over, and then fell on top of it.. snapping the head off. I promptly grabbed her skateboard and smashed it. I managed to fix the guitar but it doesn't play quite the same. Wasn't an amazing guitar anyways but damn.. show some respect.
