    Hey just last week I bought a $300 new Miele HEPA filter vacuum just for the sole purpose of vacuuming them off the second they have dust or dead skin on them. I hate that. So I feel your need. :thumb: It stays in the room I play guitar the most. I’m an anti-relic anti-dust guy :thumbd: Those Mieles are freakin quiet!

    You like cleaning your guitars and then you hang them up so they can quickly get dusty again? :eek:

    Joking aside, I'm sure cleaning is therapeutic for you so I certainly wouldn't give it another thought.

    I don't see a problem. I have 13 guitars and basses and another on back order. I enjoy all of them but I can only play one at a time. :(

    Now THAT is what I call a problem. :D

    With Woodies Guitar Hangers you can fill up your ceiling with guitars! :D

    The videos of being removed and replaced are of my guitars. I have no affiliation.

    Both of these things would be a problem for me. I just like playing them and less is more in my head, so I have one acoustic and two electrics (with an overwhelming #1). I clean them about every third or fourth string change, when the spooge on them is both visible and tactile (but still not audible, so I’m probably over-cleaning). I don’t like comparing and agonizing over which guitar to play - it REALLY detracts from the playing time and quality - FOR ME.

    But this stuff is only a problem for YOU if you feel it is. Which you clearly don’t. So, it’s not. Enjoy all of your cleaning and polishing!

    Yes, problem. Speaking for all the co-dependents here, if you have enough time to do that, you still don't have enough guitars.

    Only a problem if your spare time is REQUIRED somewhere else.
