Well, it couldn't hurt, although not sure I would put that on top of the resume. I do know these positions are mostly filled by Congresspeople, who get two or three choices each year, both members of ...

If it were me, I'd either look for a guitar that fit my wishes or build one to suit (with the attitude of "why make me choose when I can have both"). This, by the way, is not currently comp ...
