    I prefer to think of it as "sharing". I'm a pretty generous fella.....

    Never beer,but I did spill half a chocolate milkshake all over my Epi Casino after a gig when I was a kid. You can still see stains from it on the blue label inside the body and the lining of the case is matted looking in a couple of spots.

    I have spilled beer on everything - just last weekend I booted one onto my pedalboard.
    The worst was knocking over a large glass of red wine into the top of my Blues Deluxe. It made some weird noises, I turned it off immediately, dumped out as much wine as I could and let it sit on my workbench for a couple of weeks. Fired it up, and it was fine - apart from the usual Blues deluxe problems.

    Didn't hurt it. Its a pretty decent old Sigma. All solid woods, D41 style bling. The "incident" happened a few yrs ago, after his Dad had already passed it on to him.

    A mate and I ran an open mic night. We used one of my Ibanez Acoustics as the house guitar. One lovely fellow decided that he would play as hard as he could using the back of his finger as a pick. Now I have dried blood splatter all through the guts of my guitar....

    When I was at the U. of Missouri we had a three piece (guitar, bass & drummer) spin off band from our regular band that played "beer breakfasts." These were mixers that a fraternity and sorority would have on Saturday mornings from about 9 to noon with a keg and a band so the young new members could mingle. People drank a lot and got rowdy.
    One Saturday we were in the middle of song (I was on bass) and our drummer shouted out to me - hey your amp is smoking! Sure enough, the cup of beer I routinely set on my Bassman head had spilled all over the tubes and wires. Needless to say the amp stopped working, and I think I finished by plugging into the lead guitar's amp or maybe the PA.
