We're a small shop in a small space doing a big job. Guitars can be shaped awkwardly, too heavy for their architecture; and the shiny finish, exposed to other sharp and abrasive objects, is easily marked in an unpleasant manner. People: please feel free to bring your guitars to us but (O Please) bring them in a case. The case not only protects your guitar but also provides convenient pockets to store your replacement parts/strings, etc. Cases also act as a deterrent against Spontaneous Rock Posing (dread applicator of chagrin to un-cased instruments the world over). No one is going to take the time required to remove a guitar from a case simply to strike the pose most appropriate to express a feeling. Like Zappa's bands, we can dance this stuff, too.
