Yes. FWIW, my definition of "immodesty" in worship (actually borrowed and adjusted from Eric Routley) is something that attempts to "manufacture" a response through manipulation. This can be done with a guitar or an organ (or a song leader!)

Are you perhaps calling for an acapella worship? Or just deriding the manipulation of any person no matter the instrument?
