. Well, if I owned a yacht, I probably wouldn’t have to worry about money…ever. And I certainly don’t own any guitars worth $4k. If I did, no, I probably wouldn’t bring it out to just any dive bar. I’ve never sniffed a cork in my life. I’m no snob, but the difference between my White Falcon and an Epiphone Les Paul is vast enough that it would bug me. No, most people in the audience wouldn’t be able to tell the difference, but I would. That’s important to me. I’m not worried about bringing my proline Gretschs to most gigs. In the 20+ years I’ve been playing shows, mostly punk shows, I’ve yet to have an instrument get damaged. I have had a two guitars stolen from me, but both times it was my fault for being mentally incapacitated and irresponsible. I’m older and soberer now. But I hear ya… If I were playing floor level at a biker rally, I’d probably bring a tele, I’m not totally crazy.
