your guitar is now going to break and there wont be anything you can do about it unfortunatly


it really shouldnt mess the neck up since there is still tension and since it was your high e string i dont think it makes that much of a tension difference
Crank your rig on 12, let it feedback wide-open for a good two minutes, freak your neighbors out and ENJOY THE POWER OF THE GUITAR! 'Oh, what a feeling,' and it ain't no damned Toyota!" ----Dimebag Darrell

It hasnt caught fire yet? Usually happens in a few hours after breaking a single string and not replacing it.

Seriously its not an issue even all the strings off dont make problems.

Wait a second... You mean you have gone this long without a spririt coming from your guitar and burning your house down? Wow, thats odd... The guitar spirits really don't like that...

Honestly, a guitar neck is not fragile enough for the lack of tension from one string to cause any noticeable difference.

Well it's all good except if you break the A string. That's where the guitar keeps it's soul.

Normally, you have to sacrifice a kitten along with a guitar that is not as good (starcasters are usally the way to go.)

You can also pray to mundhol the god of the feral abyss, to spare your life.


In most cases a missing string won't cause any damage, guitars aren't stringed until they get into the shop.

Too much tension is what hurts the guitar, for example if you were to put 120 gauge strings all across the guitar, It would probly snap on the third string.

Dude, I have no idea why people think a lack of tension for just a few days is going to wreak havoc on their necks. In case you haven't noticed, extreme tension doesn't warp them because they're designed to not warp.

If you put a dimebucker in the neck it adds strength to the neck. In fact with a dimebucker the guitar sounds best without any strings at all.

considder your guitar wrecked. Leaving a guitar with 5 strings for over a day will tear your neck apart.
I suggest you take some rope and try to attatch it where the string was and tighten it as hard as you can. Then post pics here.

^Then catch the rope on fire. Pray to Leo Fender it works to heal your neck.

Don't listen to all these people saying it won't hurt your guitar!!! What you have to do is grab the headstock with both hands, and pull on it as hard as you can(trying your best to replicate the tension normally produced by the high e string). If you can hold this position until your new string arrives, you should be ok. However, if you let go of it for any more that two-three minutes at a time, it will blow up. Sorry to tell you this, but it's the truth.
