    My sister wants me to go with Mom to Las Vegas over spring break. I don’t want to, but I feel like I have to. It might be good to get away for a few days...Should I bring my guitar? I don’t want to not play for 2 or 3 days.

    Yes, you should! But airline companies have a bad rep regarding that. I know some airlines let you carry it as in-flight luggage...

    Is it an expensive acoustic? How attached are you to it?

    I have two acoustics: an old Guild, which I adore and never leaves home, and a small and relatively cheap Simon & Patrick (a sub-brand of Godin, a local guitar company; great little guitar, by the way), which I don't mind taking with me if I go out somewhere.

    I have 1 guitar. It’s a middle of the road Yamaha acoustic.

    Yamaha makes decent guitars. A friend of mine has a Yamaha SA1200 (Yamaha's take on the Gibson ES-335) from the early 80s and that thing is lovely! It puts gibson to shame. And my first acoustic was a Japanese made Yamaha FG-180.

    Anyway, Yamaha's are solid guitars, and usually easy to replace if there's a problem. I would take it with me to Vegas.

    By the way, did you guys know that Gibson is facing bankruptcy?

    Wasn't there a whole thing where they were knowingly using wood from protected trees?

    Fuck those folks anyway.

    Yep. And the present CEO of gibson is a right wing cretin. I love the guitars (some of them anyway), but I hate the company.

    Fender is in trouble too. I think the main reason the big builders are in trouble is the simple fact that they keep churning loads of instruments into a market that is saturated: used instruments, new builders, cheaper high quality import guitars, all competing for the attention of a stagnant number of players.

    I have never bought a new guitar, all my stuff was acquired second hand.

    That makes sense. A large percentage of guitars are cherished and well-cared-for and another large percentage of them are seldom played and avoid wear and tear that way.

    With no major improvements in guitar technology, it makes sense that after a certain point there would just sort of be enough guitars.

    I get your logic but it feels weird to think that the world has enough guitars.

    Not going to Vegas cause we're going to Reno instead. I'm a little worried about because a while back I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die.

    I didn't mean there are literally "enough" guitars. But enough to cause the guitar-making industry to take a tumble without any clear path out of it? Yeah. Yeah, seems like.

    So now when you hear a train whistle blowing, you hang your head and cry, right?

    This one made me laugh. I hope it's satire.
