I've never met a guitarist that's just seen it as a 'tool'. Every guitarist I know has some kind of connection to a guitar, even if it's 1 particular one out of 7. Others are like me, they love every guitar they have.

A dream guitar, I'm not that bothered about finding one of them. I tend not to dream because when you wake, you'll be very disappointed. I just want to play a few different ones and pick the best sounding one. And keep the sentimental ones.

The storage thing I can agree with but I'd find room. Somehow.

Sorry dude, but thats one of the most pretentious pieces of advice I've seen on these forums in some time. Especially since its not even related to my post in that thread, just the title of the thread itself, which I didn't make.

I've seen more pretentious stuff on here, it's quite a pretentious site. I like a bit of pretentious now and then though! It wasn't related to your post? Dream guitar.. dreams. It's all relative.

I have to agree with the "tool" remark. Unless you really love the guitar's quality and the sound it makes there's no other reason to cherish it.

Your first guitar, even though it's shit, you can keep it until you're an old man and say this was my first guitar. That would be a nice thing I think.

Yeah, except that your first guitar is usually a really ****ty one. Unless there was some cool scratches filled with memories on it, I don't think I'll ever keep it.

Like I got my first guitar 8 years ago, and I really don't know where it is right now. I just bought my second one this year.

When ever I see someone who doesnt know what there doing pick up a real nice guitar and say that anyone could sound great on this thing I cringe.

I really want an american made sg but I dont feel worthy to own one yet. Or maybe I just need a job.

Hey man, Kurt Cobain had some nice vintage guitars... but was he a great guitar player? No.

Guy at work phoned me up today and complained his bluetooth headphones were picking up radio signals when he played guitar through them.

I told him it wouldn't be the headphones bluetooth doesn't work that way, its more likely his guitar since those pick up radio all the time, I have a stompbox or two that does, its very common with guitars, particularly if they have single coils.

He proceeded to get shirty with me, assuming I know nothing about guitars and tell me "Right well I don't have singlecoils its a Gibson SG"

My response?

"Ah ok then, well you'll probably have Gibson 498R Burstbuckers if its a recent one, in which case they won't be picking up the radio signals but unfortunately gibson have switched to using conductive paint rather than copper shielding on their guitars so its quite possible you could be picking it up in the controls or the signal path, it happens all the time with gutiars I'm afraid."

His response was to tell me he'd never heard such rubbish and to hang up. Shame, since I was about to start talking about hearing radio stations in jimi hendrix tracks and pointing out to him that the spinal tap scene at the airforce base was based on a real event :P

I loved my Takamine! If he doesn't know much about guitar, you should start him on nylon strings too. Eventually he needs calloused hands, so his fingers will bleed at one point or another from pressing on the strings. But that's with steel strings, and I find it best to get accustomed to playing before experiencing cut fingertips.
