So, if I'm getting this right, then this is sort of the same principle as "If the bearing edges aren't in good condition, then the drum won't sound good regardless of heads, tuning, wood, hardware etc." All things considered-- the differences between drums and guitar etc.
I've been thinking about picking up guitar at some point in the future, so I've been perusing this thread.
