Next generation Cracker Barrel Walls.
Rock and roll hall of fame.
Annie Proulx did this with an accordion, in her novel Accordion Dreams.
I guy I played with (also a luthier) swears that he found a Les Paul Deluxe minus all electronics thrown in a dumpster by Dickey Betts. The backstory on why he threw it away was very strange. Not sure if the backstory is true so I'll just skip that part.
[QUOTE All of this is toxic and off putting to people who have just started to get into the guitar. Just my two cents.[/QUOTE]
Not sure why you choose to joust here. No one speaks of the guitar’s demise. No one attacks Gibson. No one exhibits a defeatist attitude which, you believe will kill the guitar. The OP’s question was where are all the world’s guitars. You’re 20. Lighten up. You’ve a long road ahead. Great that you play and make guitars. Enjoy.
You see, when a man and a woman are really in love, they give each other a special kind of hug, and 9 months later a new potential guitar buyer is born.
Now go eat your broccoli.
I smashed one once as a joke. It was about to be thrown out by a friend and might as well have been made of paper mâché, but it was originally sold as a guitar.
I like that rule, and I am somewhat short by it, best get some bought, your my friend, Iike an enabler!
There is a mythical place of legend... some call it " The Island of Lost Guitars ..."
Yup ... that's where they go ...
I have asked myself the same question about all those Epiphone valve juniors we all had..
"where have all those tube amps gone,
They where here but now they're gone.
When will we ever learn,
When will we ever learn..."
They all end up in piles in my basement.
Many are forgotten by their owner
I like the theory that all the expensive customs shop beautifully appointed and luxuriously painted out of reach guitars are away of catching a beginners interest getting her/him hooked on the guitar as a incon of empowerment and symbolic of being enabled to practice conspicuous consumption settling for what the can afford now with the fantasy of moving upscale in the future "someday I will have that limited production, numbered, certified, custom shop Elmer Fudd special with the dollar bill mother of pearl inlays in the neck.
what? it could happen. just a little paranoid but it could happen, maybe.
People on guitar forums modify them over and over until they become leaf blowers.
I've thrown away at least half a dozen, mainly acoustics.
They all needed throwing away.
Just because something is technically a guitar doesn't mean it's any good or that it can or should be salvaged. Crap is crap.
Apologies, I should have made it clear at the beginning of my post, my response wasn't in response to the op's question, but more so me expressing my opinion in relation to the comments by some in the thread discussing where the guitar market is currently and what its future is, and where it fits in modern popular music. In hindsight, I probably should've made my own thread.
In your garage ,behind all those Billy Mays products you bought years ago . Insde that old gigbag covered in dust. Its like a time capsule waiting for a young kid to find and begin they're journey
Or your brother still has it in his closet
Exactly why I buy used. Do we really need all these new guitars when there are so many out there already? Eventually it becomes an ethics/social responsibility issue.
My philosophy is "waste not, want not".
Pete Townsend broke em all.
(sorry couldn't help it)
