No guitars were harmed in the making of this video
I've ridden all those miles on the same bicycle, but I am on my third guitar. None were damaged by me by riding with them tens of thousands of miles. My first guitar was a Hofner copy of a Fender Mustang, sort of like a Strat with two single coil pickups instead of three. It fell apart from being taken with me everywhere (literally), not from being ridden with. The second guitar was a Strat copy that was accidentally damaged when I was auditioning a drummer back in 1989 or so, then I finished the job Who-style by smashing it to pieces while continuing to play. The drummer was scared and never came back, lol.
I have had the same guitar since 1990 or so, a 1979 Silver Anniversary Fender Stratocaster. It currently has about ten thousand miles on it. This Strat was scarred in the summer of 1993 by an encounter with some punks who assaulted me when I was riding and playing while watching the Perseids meteor shower in the middle of the night. I didn't let them get the guitar, but it was damaged. The back wheel of my Schwinn was also wrecked.
