I think many guitar players fear that they may be bested on their own instrument at gig, no one wants that... thus no sharing. Many guitarists' feel a physical and/or emotional connection to a guitar, which I understand, which may explain why they don't share.
Great idea about the strings and such. As far as the other part, I'm not that way but I do understand that there are others that do.
