How often do you use your backup guitar at a show? I always used to bring a second guitar. Sometimes I still do. But after awhile I noticed I never used it. Unless I manufactured an excuse to do so. So lately I've been bringing one. If it's a really big show or we're getting paid a lot, I'll bring two. But I never really use the second one, unless it's out of spite. Today we played to a packed house for two and a half hours. Probably 200 people jammed in the bar. I brought a backup, but sized up the stage and the crowd and put it back in the car. I have three electrics. I like all of them a lot. Any of them will make good enough sounds and play well enough. Once I pick one up for a show, I don't like to put it down. I remember bringing 3 to some shows early on. And finding a reason to use each of them. We have no roadies or techs, so I really like the flow that comes with playing only one. So do you guys bring a backup? If you do, do you use it? Because you need to? Or because you find a reason to "need" to?
