AHHHH the worst day ever. So Today I came home from exams and went into myroom and discovered my and only my room had been destroyed. There were teeth marks in everything, Guitars, amps , pedals and cables were everywhere. I about died... thefirst thing I did was run and pick up my marshall head and sit it on its cabinet (no it didnt fall from there thankfully I had it about six inches above the ground on a little table). I saw my spider 3 was completly turned over where my guitar should be and I wasnt to worried about it as its built like a tank ( and yeah it sounds like one too ). But then it occured to me wheres my guitar? I found my epi sg sticking out from under the bed not a scratch on it, but thats when I saw my gibson poking out from all my clothes that had been strayed across my room I went to pick it up thinking oh god and as I did I was releived that there were no cracks in the headstock or anything. but the I looked a little further up and discovrd Something had chewed the tip of my headstock off (AAAAAHHHHHHH). It chewed the off the D string tuner peg and took a 1/2 inch chunk out of the wood behind the over lay and scratch the overlay to pieces up top on the left side I will prob get a picture up later as for now I dont want too look at it. Apparently something had came down my chimney wtf??? as i heard something up there and yeah theres a fire going right now hopefully it died in there maybe it was a raccoon judging by the size of it teeth? Idk I just figured Id tell you guys about my misfortunes and does anyone know how to repair my Gibby?

I guess my pitbull cornered it in there as the teeth marks in everything were to small to be his. I hope a tech can fix this...

Well hopefully it'll fix up and sound just as good as it did, with the plus side of having some nice battle scars and a nice little anecdotal tale for you to tell at dinner parties

Well I'm sure the tuner can be replaced thats not a problem. As for the scratches and stuff, take it to a luthier and see what he/she can do.
#26
If I caught the raccoon, you can sure PETA would be protesting in front of my house by the end of the week.

I think they'd be over-reacting. After all, the raccoon would recieve a trial before I hang, draw and quarter it, and then post pics on /b/.

Yeah im not to worried about the tuner but the rest of it SUCKS I mean really this guitar was in pristine condition you would have been lucky to find one scratch or a slight impression for about 2 years worth of playing on it. Now you see all these scratches on the back and bite marks it just sucks...

Man, sucks about the guitar attack. At least your amp came out of it alright. i thought that was going to be the huge 'oh no!!!!' moment.

Yeah thank god the amps alright its basically new im surprised it didnt even chew the tolex though. I thought tolex would probably taste better than mahogany but I guess I was wrong...

Well if it was a raccoon, find it and make a hat out of it. Then you can wear it and play your guitar out of spite.
#33
lol yeah but if it did eat the amp atleast I may have got lucky and it electrocuted itself...

a few ways to deal with raccons, wait on the pourch with the .50cal bmg, find some cynide pills and stuff them in small pices of hotdogs, (what my opa used to do to cats thaat pissedon his car tires) then place them aound the outside of your house, or set some land mines, but that the most difficult one.


i would buy a entire new neck. if i had the money, but thats me.

EDIT: we know how to deal with coons in Texas.

Any idea what happened exactly TS? You have inspired me to close my bedroom door whilst I am out.
