My guitar is in intensive care.
Yes, that beautiful 1966 Gibson J-50 has issues. I took it into McCabe’s Guitar Shop and after some orthopedic surgery, it came home to recuperate. Now it’s back in the hospital, and I’m waiting for the doctor’s report.
I grew up with old Fender Guitars. My friend Dave has run over his ‘60’s P-Bass with a van 3 times that I know of. No issues, no problem. A Fender guitar is like Johnny Knoxville.
A Gibson acoustic is like your high school friend who couldn’t go out to the movies because of a sinus problem.
