I have a true story that relates to this topic.
Many years ago (18+), I went with one of my students to help them purchase a graduation gift (nice guitar) that their parents were paying for. We went to a local acoustic guitar store and after playing lots of Martins, Collings, and Taylors, she decided on a moderately priced Martin (I believe it was a 16 series OM). Anyway, we immediately took it back to my studio where I did a complete setup including fret level and dress. After I was done, it played amazing and she was very happy. After playing it for about 45 minutes at my studio, she went to place the guitar back in it’s case and in the process of setting it in the case, the top of the case dropped onto the top of the guitar and put 4 nasty dings on the top of the instrument (the brass latch bounced against the top). She was stunned (as was I) and began to cry. I calmed her down and told her that now she didn’t need to worry about dinging up her guitar, she was free to play it with freedom from fear.
I felt terrible for her, but in the end, an acoustic guitar is just pieces of wood with some metal strings attached. It can make amazing music int he right hands, but it is just a piece of wood with strings. Play it, enjoy it, don’t lose sleep over it.
