the only thing i would think is bad is if after they smash it they throw it into the crowd, that could be dangerous. other then that, if you want to smash your axe, do it.
When I say throw I mean find a person and get their attention and toss it to them. Like if you ever see Paul Stanley throw his guitar it gets tossed to the front row while bend over. The toss is a good 2.5-3 foot. My self I didn't mean sling it in to a crowd because it common since that throwing a 5-6lb peice of wood will hurt someone.

actually my comment wasnt refering to the weight of the guitar, but to the jagged edges you get when you smash wood. but i guess getting hit with something heavy would hurt really bad to.

On the G3 Live in Denver dvd Yngwie does something really lame. At the end of his set, he messes around with some weird noises, then he hands his main guitar to his guitar tech. The tech then gives him some backup guitar and Yngwie proceeds to smash it. This just came off as the "Look at me!" shock value that ApparentlyNothing has been talking about.

I don't really see smashing it on stage. (Especially as someone has said before if you're in a christian band) You might break something I just smashed this peice of junk with no pick-ups or bridge or ANYTHING on it on the front porch for the fun of it. But now that I think about it I don't really see a point in it....

I was just kidding about being destructive, you'll find I fool around maybe a little to much.

Also this is as good a time as any to tell you I don't really care about your opinion about me wether it's good or bad. It doesn't really matter to me at all if you think I'm some stupid 13 yr old punk who picks his nose and goes around smashing things. I'll never see 99% of the people on this board until we all get taken anyway, and we'll all be perfect there.

(btw - I'm 15 not 13..)

That looks more like a Samick to me, but my moniter isn't at it's best. And I know that is a bass in the pic but they do make basses with tremlos.

Thats about where any respect, admiration and reverence I might have had for that guy went out the window.

okay, if anyone threw a guitar at me while iw as in the crowd, i would sue them. [/QUOTE]

ya, that would hurt , but i was talking about like tossing it, not throwing it at someone, cause i mean, who's not gonna be watching you if your playing in a concert, its not like your gonna catch someone off guard, plus most likely your gonna be throwing it after like an awesome solo or something, so people will be paying attention to you.
