So how fussed do y'all get about the appearance of your instrument? I'm curious because my good classical is just over 8 years old, has never sounded better but is starting to become really scratched up. (Western Red Cedar is one of the softest tone woods I know, and it's just frightening how easy it is to put a scratch on it with your fingernail.) It came by every one of those marks honestly; it shows how much this instrument gets played and I'd much rather have a guitar that I want to play all the time versus some poor thing locked in a glass case.

So how much do you freak out about marks on your axe?
