So.... my cell phone charger is plugged behind my guitar stand, the wire got caught in it while I was plugging my phone, so my stand went off balance and since I'm stupid and didn't secure my guitar correctly, it went straigt to the floor..!


Now I'm pissed because my 1000$ guitar sounds like crap because of this, I'm scared of trying to do anything since I do not know what would be the problem


Has anything similar happened to you or am I the only one that screwed up horribly?!

I would imagine thousands of guitarists have dropper their guitar before.
#3
First off just check it over for obvious damage (cracks, splits etc). Beyond that you might have just knocked it out of tune badly.
#4
Re-tune it.

Probably send him a memo about it... would also need to fill out those TPS reports first

seriously, though, I'm not laughing at the guitar falling, that sucks- I'm always scared stiff I'll knock my guitars over.

I guess you could do what JackalUK said and check it over... if there's not any obvious damage maybe try to retune it. Or just take it to a tech/luthier to be sure there's nothing wrong with it (just in case it's something you haven't spotted yourself).

I did tune it, the only obvious damage is a paint chip, i can't see any cracks in the wood.

I'm guessing something inside might be loose or whatnot


And yes, I actually do need a new amp but I'm poort so I can't afford one at the moment.

the amp thing was a joke about how all reponses in G G&A tell the threadstarter to get a new amp, regardless of the circumstances

If you have tried tuning it etc. i'd take it to a tech, just in case, as you say, something has gone wrong.

yes I know the amp thing is a joke It's just ironic that I do need one :p

and I will also be taking it to a tech as soon as I can because I juste checked to wiring and stuff just to see if something might have been knocked out of place but everything looks right..!

maybe the neck might need to be adjusted or something?!

I just hope it won't cost to much.

I don't understand, your guitar fell, you tuned it but it sounds like "crap"

What exactly does crap sound like? is it buzzing? noisy? quiet? what? is it a set neck, bolt on? How did it land, flat on the front? Did it hit the headstock forst? did it just make contact and you caught it? What is the point of this thread? If you wnt folks to help diagnose what is wrong with it, don't you think it would be good to include more information than "it fell now it sounds like crap"?

Look down the neck, is it straight, bowed, "s" shaped etc?

and finish those TPS reports asap.

U mad?!


it fell face first (strings on the floor) I tuned it but whilst tunning with a tuner, the tunner could not really read the notes correctly, example: while tuning the low E string it would read E and then it would go blank then read a random note, all while sounding normal (without being plugged in to the amp)

The once tuned I plug it in the amp and barely get any sound.

My tuners always do that, LOL


If it is really quiet, I'd look at the switch and the jack, was it plugged in when it fell? have you tried switching the pickups when it is plugged in, if so, is there excess static? does the cable still go into the jack properly is it more loose or tight now? if you touch the cable jack while the guitar is plugged in do you hear static, can you move it around and get better sound?

It sounds like you have a short in there somewhere, time to get out the DVOM and a soldering iron and fix that sucker.

the jack fits in fine, no loose anything, it was not plugged in when it fell, there is no static, I'm guessing a short then, but I'd rather get a tech to do soldering, I've done it on cars before but I'm scared to do it on my guitar!

If it makes barely any sound while plugged into the amp, the pickups or input probably got knocked around. Only thing to do is take it to a shop and find out the damage I guess.

well just came back from the store to get it checked, plugged it in and it worked like new.. so I figured I'll get a new jack and a couple of other things while there, just to realize that coincidentaly my jack was dying so all is good now!


But I still need a new amp
