Has the guitar ever injured you in any way? One time i was tuning my acoustic back to normal tuning from open d, and as i was tuning the high e string it snapped and whipped my arm. opened up a 6 inch long gash down my forearm. Another time i tripped over my guitar in the middle of the night when i went for a drink of water, damn near broke my face on the corner of my dresser.


Has the pit ever received injury from their guitars?

I once was shredding so awesome-like that the fretboard caught fire and burnt the fingernails off of my hands.

On several occasions.

I got hit in the head by a guitar my friend was holding. It was an accident, but I raeeged at him.

Once when I was adjusting the truss rod, a mate bumped my guitar, and as I catch it, the TR cover slices up my hand a good bit. I have pics somewhere.

Got my dick stuck in the soundhole of my acoustic once.

cut myself on the string ends by the tuners on many occasions. ( never too bad though). Scraped knuckles on the bridge. bruised fingers on the side of the guitar/neck. and of course blisters.

To be fair, if your ear is bad enough that you snap the high e trying to tune it up a major second you deserve the gash.

I decided to play guitar naked once...bad idea, I had taken the back plate off of my strat and when I hit the whammy bar the springs clamped down on my pubes and pulled out some hair.....hurt like hell.

many times once the b string snapped whilst doing a bend and it comes up and hits me in the face another time i was changing strings and i was cutting off the excess off the thick e and it shoots out and hits me in the eye
my favorite time thoug i did a a slide and the string cut into my finger so about half of the string was covered in blood it looked pretty cool
#15
I have this crappy Paul Stanley signature guitar from target. It fell off the wall and one of the pointy edges hit my head.

I bled............a lot.
#16
One time I was completely rocking out and thrashing around while playing a Deftones song and when I was done I noticed my guitar had blood running down it. I hit my finger on the string and tore it open. It looked badass.

And another time while headbanging my headstock came up n hit me right underneath the left eye

I have nothing to cut excess string off with, so I just leave it to dangle. Many times I poke myself in the eye bending over to pick it up out of its stand in the dark.

To be fair, this happened to me just the other day, and I was using a tuner. The strings were horribly old.

I've played until my fingers bled, gotten blisters, not much more that that, though.

I kept playing this lick with a slide in it over and over again until it actually cut open my finger like a knife.

To be fair, the whole situation could be avoided if you replace your strings once every month or so.

Nothing major but I played so much when I got my new guitar that my finger bled.

I had a Bass string snap and hit me under the eye (old strings, and it freaking hurt)

I've been hit in the head with many headstocks

My acoustic used to have this dodgy fret where a sliver of metal would hang out from the edge, so sliding up the neck could be quite a dangerous exercise.

TS, could I sig that?

Relating to the topic at hand, I can't recall any instances offhand when my guitar injured me- although my hand does get sore when I'm playing a song that consists of almost continuous power chords in standard tuning (or in Eb, D Standard, etc.).

Actually, this, I do suffer major hand cramps in long annoying power chord songs. Ever played Jesus of Suburbia the whole way through and not gotten a hand cramp? If so, teach me. haha

I've whopped myself upside the head a few times, once got shocked by a friends shitty Strat copy, once a string went through that flap of skin in between your thumb and first finger...

Et cetera.

I have a bad knee and once during a gig my guitar cord got wrapped around my leg and I went down and fell on my back. Blew my knee back out. One of our best shows ever.
