I could imagine how this could be beneficial to both player and luthier. The luthier is receiving constant feedback from someone who can bring the most out of the instrument over an extended period of time, while many other luthiers don't get to hear their instrument or receive substantive feedback once it has left the shop. I'd also imagine a spouse would be more willing to be frank in their critique.
But couldn't it be an overdose of your guitars? It's like taking your work home and not being able to let go or concentrate on your next projects?!
Would you charge the same for it from your couple than you would from others? What if your couple suddenly doesn't like the sound of your guitars anymore and sells it on the bay?
(of course without telling you before)
Or starts a "guitar affair" with the luthier next door whose instruments she/he prefers?
Just some thoughts before going to sleep....
