    Well, as Pete Townshend often proved, SG stands for "Smashes Good":D

    Only point I don't get is why cowboy chords and not power chords. It is pure action of punk, so soundtrack should be according.

    I think the FAQ for this site says not to say anything personal against any poster. With that in mind I'll simply say

    I feel sorry for the wife, esp. if family finances were involved.

    I'd get a well deserved slap and the sofa for a month (at least).

    Always Sunny right? The episode where Charlie and Mac smash Dennis' late model Stromberg into splinters and then they smoke the wood chips. Am I right or am I right? It's a jabroni thing.

    Hah, people around here say I'm rough on my guitars but I've never done that!

    Worst thing I ever did (and my guitar survived) - played a house party, jumped up like Dee Dee Ramone on the last chord of a song and my guitar apparently hit a low-flying ceiling fan in motion. Whack! Ah, teenage punk rock.

    Guitar survived except with a bit of a chip on the fretboard. Ceiling fan lost a blade. Luckily the homeowner was in another room. Whoops.

    well, that would be why car manufacturers perform crash tests.

    but no one said anything about smashing a tele, because it can't be done without extreme effort. if you can manage it, it's one of the ultimate forms of rock and roll aggression.

    You might have taken less heat if you had just re enacted Keef's attempted braining of a fan who stormed the stage on the Stones '81 US tour. For the few unaware of the story.... The guy made a run for Mick, missed and doubled back. Security was not anywhere close so Keef stopped him by swinging his Tele at him and made good contact. By then security grabbed him and removed him from the stage. Keef strapped on the Tele and kept right on playing Satisfaction, still in tune. I still can't believe you did that..... Poor li'l Tele.... I guess you were trying to take it to the next level!

    I sure wouldn't do that any of my guitars, tele's or otherwise and I'll leave it at that

    That Keef incident has been implanted in my brain since I first started lurking this site a few years ago. It is no doubt the reason I felt confident throwing my two Teles against the wall the other night, no matter how stupid or drunk I was. I knew the Teles would be just fine after the fact, which of course they are.
