My guitar falls off of its stand often, and it just did again and landed face first, from about 2 inches up, not a big fall, but now whenever I hold the 3rd fret on the A string the note dies out instantly... but its only that ONE fret on that one string and I can't see any physical damage. Wtf happened?
#2
it mite be something to do with the rod or the bridge

You didn't take care of it, that's what happened. Better luck next time.

I didn't take care of it? Are you retarded? I have no controll over my guitar tipping over randomly when I'm not in the room you tool.
#6
If it's fallen off the stand before then why the hell would you continue to put it on there? I was only kidding though and can't help you with your problem.
#7
There was a cut in the A string on the underside right above the 3rd fret, so I'm going to restring it and see if it works.

The only thing I can thing of that won't be solved by restringing would be if there is some problem with that fret - either some problem with it period, or some problem that is going to cause it to cut the A string.

Although from what you've said, it seems really likely that it's just the string and everything will be fine after you restring

Could you describe how you have your guitar standing in your room, so maybe we can offer some suggestions on how to keep it from falling over?

You should really look into getting a new stand to........you know, so it doesn't fall off again

I have a guitar stand, and it sometimes falls. I don't know why.

I keep my guitar in its case when im done playing.

Just put your guitar up against the wall. Your stand obviously sucks.

I have my guitar in it's case when I'm done playing, but if I'm playing and feel like taking a break or something I just lay it on my bed. That way it won't fall unless my bed randomly decides to flip over.

I have the first one, and it is solid as a rock. just make sure its mounted on a wall stud, and your guitar will never fall down again. It also looks good.

EDIT: It also keeps the neck in alignment.
