Thread Name: When your luthier disses your baby
Subject: RE: When your luthier disses your baby
I wonder how many luthiers have said to Willie Nelson, "Why don't you get rid of that piece of junk? It's scratched up, beat up, written on, and there's a bloody great hole worn in the soundboard where a pick-guard is supposed to be. And besides, it's a classic with nylon strings. Don't you know that country musicians don't play classic guitars with nylon strings? And on top of that, even though it's a classic, you play it with a pick, fer Gawdsake! Surely by now you can afford to buy yourself a decent guitar!"
I wonder what Willie would say. . . .
(But I think I have an idea. . . .)
