My 1k$ guitar just fell face first from its stand... Really upset right now. I can't find any cracks/damage except that the tone switcher covering thing ( I can't really explain it, but I'm quite sure its unimportant) is cracked a bit.

Is there anything else that could be wrong with it that I can't see? It still stays in tune perfectly from what I can tell so far but could anything else have been damaged? Thanks in advanced.

no. it should be find. happens to everyone sometimes. just plug it in and play it and if it still plays... than its fine.

Have you plugged it in? If not, do so and make sure that the electronics were properly soldered and nothing came loose.

Thank you. It just felt so horrible hearing the crash and then turning around and seeing on the ground...

Yes I've plugged it in and played it for a few minutes and it sounds the same, thanks.

$1k is stretching it a bit. It should be fine, unless the pots or switches themselves are damaged. It's easy to replace a knob or switch.

It should be fine but try not to let it happen, it can't be good for the neck. It happened to my Telecaster numerous times but I don't want it to happen again.
Always tin your strings.

That's why I keep my guitars in their cases. Stands are accidents waiting to happen.

Hercules stands or something that has some kind of safety is imporwtant when your guitar is that expesive.

I use a case. The case is soooo big and takes much space. Not recommended if you're going to walk to a lesson or something with it, because a case usually weigths 6-8 kilos. (a guitar is like 3-5 kilos).
