You're being very honest there Rob, and I respect you for that.. The blunt answer is though, if a guitar, or any musical instrument, doesn't get played, it just reverts to what it actually is.. an inanimate object. A thing!.. and we all own too many 'things' and become slaves to them.. Stripping away unused and unwanted possessions really does free you up as a person. Both physically and spiritually.. peace..
