Reply To: Bring your own guitar
I’m also not aware of any legal issues with the “bring your own guitar” requirement. I run my classes that way. I do specify that the instrument has to be an acoustic and that it has to be playable. I inspect each student’s guitar before they start to make sure the instrument is in workable shape. If it isn’t in playable workable condition I recommend they either get it fixed or buy a new one. My admin backs this policy.
I have also had a couple of guitars come in that were vintage instruments, to which I told the student that “if you drop I’m going to buy your guitar”…actually I send word home on these that they should reconsider having that instrument at school due to the potential value of the instrument.
