I allways get a little angry with that, you can better throw it in the public or give it away to a fan.
Is this habitt only done by some professional guitarists or are some of you doing it also and why?
Maybe we can make a top ten of famous guitar smashers.

Well, yeah it frustrates me too. For the most part, Ive always believed that every guitar has a soul, :D.
I think that there are too many musicians who who feel the need to destroy their set due to the lack of energy on the fans part. I guess in a way they feel that if the music couldn't get the job done, they want to give the fans something to talk about the next time they come around town..[i] I could never destroy a guitar, I'm too self conscious about stuff like that...Sometimes its fun to watch, but after a while, once you analyze it, its really dumb...
