Do you bond with your instruments, or do you view them as tools? Are they an extension of yourself, or just something to use to make music? How do you find them? What made me ponder this was I played an L-00 after oogling at J-45s. While the L-00 wasn't my first choice, I bonded with her immediately. Something about parlor guitars' top end is just magic. I tend to get called by the guitar to try it. It's hard to describe unless it happens to you. I immediately bond with a guitar if it's something that was calling to me to play it, and I would have walked out with that L-00 if I had the cash. I put my SG on layaway back before I got it after I strummed a G Chord on it. It's just something that's hard to describe. So, how do you bond with your guitars?
