i was planning to shoot my SG with a 9mm or a .38 caliber... hopefully no magnums...

somehow, if i shoot near the edge, will the tone degrade?

i kinda like the look of a gunshot on wood...

Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.

Tone is an opinion. You might like it better with the gaping hole. You might not. It shouldn't make too much of a difference but it seems like a waste of bullets to me. And I think you'll regret it.

It can't be too good for your guitar, but if you go through with it, post pics

^ I'm with tongue on this one. Dude go for it. If you've got the balls to "bust a cap in its ass" as you kids say, then I'll tip my hat to you. And Ive got some info that you'll find out if you do decide to shoot it, to go along with tongues info.
#12
Do it! I wanna hear the rednecks advice. Although I have my own opinion on what will happen lol.
#14
I think you're going to split the wood. I don't foresee the bullet going straight through.

ahahaha thats awsome


.... any way thats is so redneck and everyone who says go for it wants something bad to happen... it will depend what you shoot it with but chances are its gonna split.

and are we talkin a gibson cuz i definetly wouldnt do it then.... unless you have the money of course..... then buy me one
#19
When you shoot that guitar with anything greater than a .38 from a hundred yards or so, it is gonna be seriously ****ed up. It might just break in half. Seriously, if you do this you are retarded and should put away the gun before someone gets hurt.
#20
I kinda like the idea, although it may or may not work. Stand as far back as you possibly can while still being able to hit wherever it is that you want the hole at. You might could put something in front of the guitar for the bullet to pass through, so it will slow down a bit before impact. The only thing is that sg's are so thin as it is that it might split the guitar. You might need a thicker guitar. Like I said though cool idea.

Do it.

Propelling metal slugs at speeds matching the speed of sound at your expensive musical instrument can only lead to good.
#23
OK I go ahead and say this. Bullet Physics 101:

The further away you stand the slower the bullet will be traveling at time of impact. If you put something in front of the guitar for the bullet to penetrate first it will again slow down too much. Both of these will caue the bullet to either lodge into the wood, or break off a big chunk of it. If you stand too far back it will cause the bullet to mushroom out the exit hole making the "wound" look like a V. If you do decide to shoot it, stand about 10 feet from it. The bullet will be traveling fast enough to get complete penetration with little mushroom effect on the exit. But all that being said it still depends on wether or not you fucking break the guitar from the force of a bullet slamming into it at super sonic speeds.

buy a 100 dollar piece of crap and shoot that first


take off the hardware first...anythign that can get wrecked or cause the bullet to ricochet

He does always run the risk of being a horrible shot and end up putting the bullet through something important like the guitar.

But seriously what if he blows a hole in the neck or something.... I will shit myself if he just blows the neck clean off.

I'd duct tape down the edges of the guitar pody, around where you want to shoot it.
I think that would reduce the chances of splitting off chunks of the body.
#32
I admit it would be cool...it would absolutely slaughter the resale value though. The guy should take it into consideration before he starts popping off slugs at his guitars...

I agree, I want vids!

Shooting you guitar with a 9mm is one of the worst ideas I have ever seen. Everybody know you should only shoot your guitar if you use a shotgun.
Not taking any online orders.
#39
you know you could drill a hole in your guitar and tell everyone you shot it. you risk the chance of you possibly destroying your guitar that way.

but shoot it anyway. i'd do it but, you know, it's my guitar. wreck yours and give us all a video.

just remember to shoot it sideways gangsta style or matrix. some flair for the video.

and don't miss and hit some lady. i hear that's not allowed in most places and she might not fancy it much.
