Carpet covering on amps, racks, & speaker cabs will attract cat hair which will be a part of that particular piece of gear for life.
I’ve had our two cats for 3 years now and they’ve never touched any of my gear. Granted, my guitar amp sits on top of my metal - grilled bass amp, but even before I got it, they never touched any of my amps or guitars. They’ve scratched furniture and peed on the couch a handful of times but my instruments have always been safe.
The red one seems to be pondering a change to the bridge...
Cat-approved Twin Reverb! That’s a replacement baffle.
Keep a cover on your amp and you’ll be fine.
It's the prototype of my Marz 6 guitar design, built for me by Marco Krijger in the Netherlands. Here it is alongside the Eastwood production Marz 6 that was eventually derived from it, though in very small numbers...
Had one that would sleep on a warm amp but that was never a problem.
My advice would be to get 2, they keep each other amused.
Dangerous? Are you getting a jaguar or a house cat?
I like the Eastwood fine, but that prototype is fantastic. How many guitars have you designed? How many have been realized?
Off the top of my head, I have probably designed a couple dozen guitars that made it at least to the color concept illustration stage, maybe another dozen as crackpot rough pencil sketches.
The ones that made it to production would be:
Early Chattanooga-built customs....
Retronix Model 800 (JBD import version)
Eastwood Backlund guitars...
Model 100 (in three variations)
Model 100 Bass
Model 700 Katalina
Rockerbox, three-pup (with or w/o Trem)
Rockerbox, two-pup (with or w/o Trem)
I think that's about it.
My puddy tat Patches sure loves sleeping in guitar cases even though it leaves behind tons of hair. She also likes my Fender Twin Reverb because it gives her cat-scratch fever. Surprisingly the grill cloth is very durable so she can scratch until her heart's content.
Beautiful stuff. I've rarely seen such a particular aesthetic so well expressed. Do you design other things, too?
2 cats for 10 years. I leave my guitars and amps out, never a problem.
My cats are also my best buds. If something happened to my gear I not be happy, but I would just get it fixed. No biggie.
If you are just starting out with cats, do some reading and put in a bit of effort to take care of them. A lot of "problems" that people have are the result of stressed, unhappy cats. Taking good care of cats is not rocket science, but it is not all obvious either. Make sure they have adequate scratching posts.
I also prefer to get female cats - even lower risk of problem behavior.
As for other things, very little, and even then, not for years.
Lucky for me mine collects guitars!
