Topic: Who NEEDS a pick guard? Warning: Rant.
Okay, I've got to rant about this. I am a beginner. I don't gig, busk, etc. I play for me...at least for now. I'm not necessarily a fan of pick guards but I do own one or two. But what kind of playing, what style causes someone to damage a guitar like this? (http://cgi.ebay.com/Martin-2000-D-15-Ac … 500wt_1182).
I would think someone would have to try to inflict this on a guitar. Please don't mention Willie Nelson's guitar which I am convinced is a contrived part of his allure and image. (I do like his music.)
I suppose with a few more years experience under my belt I will understand?
p.s. Yes, I'm on eBay again.
