So I have a very nice strat with an American Special body and Vintage Player neck. Body and neck are perfect and I am probably going to take it apart and get something older and beat up. I already ordered a used MIM body and probably going to look for a neck. Anyway I don't like to play having to be "extra" careful taking care of the guitar. I just want to play it and if it gets a scratch, nick, or ding not even worry. If my kids grab it or the dog knocks it over who cares. But I can't get that feeling when the guitar is pristine. And I am not talking about roadworn or relic because of looks. Am I nuts?
