Okay, not everyone is going to back me on this one. I don't care. There are WAY too many guitars out there, and most of them are not being played. Knock that crap off, guitar hoarders! I'm sick and tired of seeing hundreds of perfectly good electric guitars sitting the in the basement of some retired rocker's Beverly Hills crib. If you own an electric guitar that you are not playing (or any instrument, really), you are doing music in general and kids in particular a huge disservice. Use it or lose it!
Think of all those kids in band, praying someday that the school will magically spring for a new electric guitar that they can practice with, only to be told that they need to learn music first on a plastic recorder purchased in 1982. If you still rock out with your guitar, you are absolved. If you have more than one guitar, though, give it a thought. This world needs more music and more musicians, and you could just become some kid's freakin hero! What would Les Paul do?
