  1. Yes! Beat up guitars have character and make you look like you know something.

    After many years of playing other peoples "first instruments", I have all "new" instruments purchased by me. Why?

    If it's "new" I know the instrument's history. The used gear has to be a great value for me to consider it.
    These days I see no point in buying something used if an eqivalent can be purchased new. If it shows wear marks from my use of it, that's one thing.

    Id love to have an old used and beat 70s P bass that I can play and really go wild with and not worry about.
