Okay so I was in Hawaii the last week, and left my guitar sitting on my bed. Unknowing to me, my parents were gonna have the air conditioner up really high so I left my A/C vent open. I left my door open in my room just in case. Well I get home after 9 days of being away to open my bedroom into a freezing and dry room. I run to my guitar and I can't play one note on the high e or b strings. My PRS SE Custom is a set neck so am I screwed? And to think I just got it reset up like 3 months ago...


I think what happened is the intonation and the neck is now unset. A setup should be good.

Though, ive never experienced something like this before.

Fender Pro Junior
Epiphone Pr-150
Do you know how to check the neck relief ? At worst the neck may have twisted, Bummer!

Yeah just if you can take it to a music shop and ask what's wrong, but it deffinately sounds like it will need to be reset at the very least.

I'd like to see any of those meathead homophobes look a Spartan in the eye and call him a fag.

just let your room gradually get to the usual room temperature/humidity, don't push it by turning up the heat by 20 degrees and puting buckets of water all over your room, just relax and let it come to a usual position.

I don't think 9 days could possibly do irriversible damage, what I do think is that maybe your thruss rod has become a bit smaller due to the cold temperature, when it gets to a normal temperature it should be fine!

edit: don't expect it to go back to normal within 24 hours, you might need to wait a day or three :p after that check if theres any damage
