Chris is completely abandoning the trappings of his former self. The guitar was part of his old world, which he felt, was a slave to materialism and illusion.Even though his guitar was very much a part of the charm that Chris possessed, he felt a hypocrite taking it. I think, from a practical point of view, it was large and difficult to include on his nomadic lifestyle.
