Then again, look at my 3 guitars. One I handcrafted for a year. I would be a loon to smash that. One is a beautiful schecter c-1 classic I purchased with college graduation money. thirdly is my first electric, an ibanez RG 320. I can't replace them, smashing them would be idiocy.

As a guitar maker and someone who most of my life was too poor to afford even a cheap guitar, people smashing an instrument, even a fairly cheap one is smashing someone's dreams.
I learned to play on a $50 acoustic guitar for 7 years before I could afford my first electric. I still can't afford my second. I don't get birthday money or graduation money or anything like that. I very much appreciate people who work hard to get what they have because I am one. I'm not condoning smashing guitars, I'm not encouraging anyone to do so, I'm just not condemning the act itself.

Anyways, I think you think I'm one of the "lowest common denominators" as you put it, and as far as I know, I'm the furthest thing from.

Neither do I. My parents gave me a little bit of money on my college graduation. They had refused to help me at alll through college, while helping my brothers out. Its not common of me. I am saying that as someone who saved for a year for my first electric.

I saved for 4 months, but I was working construction and I was 17, no bills.
