When building a guitar, I border on OCD with my sanding technique. I just have to get out every single sanding scratch. Same goes for buffing and polishing. Dings and scratches at that point are imperfections.

But when the guitar is finished and I begin to actually play it, I treat it like a two-bit whore. Dings and scratches at that point are signs of character.

I've spent weeks on the perfect finish only to ding it up in the first week of playing it and it doesn't really bother me. Weird, eh?
