My guitar receives much abuse mainly because I get carried away playing guitar, doing the whole headbanging thing then realising that the headstock of my guitar is stuck in the walll I know thats not the way your supposed to treat an 800 dollar guitar but i really cant help it. Im also a rather short and clumbsy person which means when I transport my guitar, I usually knock it around a fair bit. My solution to this was to buy a hardcase. I never looked back since, ive saved my guitar and wallet on numerous occations and if i had never bought one, my guitar would be in peices and so would I because as much as I abuse it, its because I love it so much in the first place.Cheers
Yeah when I'm jamming over at my mate's house my guitar hits the roof all the time because we're in the basement and the roof's real low. Nothing as bad as what you described though. Yeah, everyone has a hard guitar case nowadays - I've never bought one, mainly cos I don't need it, but each to their own I guess.
