There's something I've never really understood that has been mentioned quite a bit on the forum. The idea that a lot of folks have stated that they bought a low-end Squier to play at their gigs so they don't have to bring their USA guitars, I guess in fear of something happening to them. Nothing against Squier's as most of my guitars in the last 4-5 years have been Squier's (mostly due to my budget). They have always performed well and I don't have any complaints. However, I guess I don't grasp the concept of buying a bunch of high end guitars and then not using them when it really counts. I would want to have top performance when I'm doing a job. It just seems wasteful to have such great instruments to leave them at home. I can understand not bringing vintage instruments, but anything short of that I just don't get the case queen thing.
