My husband & I can't watch anyone play guitar (PBS specials, concerts, Mountain Stage, etc.) without trying to identify the guitars being played. We get really irritated when they pan the guitar, and stop just short of the headstock, then switch to another shot.

Just wondering.

I should be doing something more constructive with my day, but I've run out of things to do... Wish I was home playing guitar....

Even worse, I'm a graphic designer, and I compulsively identify fonts...in books, magazines, signs, commercials.

I am a photo researcher, so when I see any historical movie I can't stop myself from always looking for mistakes.  Sometimes it even makes it hard to follow the story.  :o

i also always seem to be interested in what kind of guitar is being played.  at it irritates me if i've never seen it before.  then i'll go to the web and try to find out what it is.  lots of people play custom guitars these days and that makes it really hard to know what they're playing.  a few examples are Tracy Chapman, Lyle Lovett, and John Sebastian....just to name a few.

it's just a goofy guitar player thing!!!  there's no hope for us!!! :blink:  :huh:  :lol:

maybe this will help you sleep at night, sc morris :D

Tracy Chapman plays guitars made by Judy Threet from Calgary, AB Canada

Lyle Lovett almost always plays Collings.
