Finding the Right Guitar

I haven't had the same experience as this player. I'm still playing the sturdy Japanese-made instrument that showed up under a Christmas tree 30+ years ago.

But I recognize some of the feelings (see Moving Down the Fingerboard). It's not just the music.

On the other hand, my guitar has been with me so long that playing another almost seems an act of betrayal. I can tell by the sound when I haven't trimmed the ends of the new strings enough. I've gotten used to the second string tuning gear being stiff. I know exactly how to trim my nails to get a good tone out of it.

Musicians are so weird.
