You've just learnt the most important lesson you can learn in life.. NEVER TRUST ANYONE

Never lend your car, your wife or your guitar! Ever. To anyone.

Don't bother fixing it, it's only a scratch, get over it.

Rub icy hot on it

But seriously, it shouldn't matter too much. Like one of the above guys said, if anyone asks, just mark it off as a "battle wound" or something cool.

But it seems like kind of a ****ty battle wound because it wasn't he who did it.

You should definetly kill your friend.

Anyways... I don't think there's a lot you could do.. except maybe refinish the guitar.. and I think that's pretty expensive.

lol, when you said crack help, i thought you wanted help getting crack, or breaking the addiction


pics?? That'd help alot...if its a crack, fill it in with gorilla glue (it takes VERY little) or Titebond, then clamp it. As for the scratch or whatever, leave it...nothing looks cooler than a beat up guitar that hasn't been "relic'd" unnaturally.

Heh thats nothing. I had a huge crack on my Kelly. I had a soft shell case (bad idea) and it was laying against the wall. Then it slid and fell on the floor. Didnt notice untill i was about to play it that the headstock had a huge crack in it. It had a huge crack separating the Low e string machine head and the a machine head. It was cracked through. The only thing keeping it together were the screws. GC said it probably wouldnt be covered under warranty, but alas when i whent to pick it up after the repair (took like 2 months to glue it back) I was like how much? And he was like, oh it was covered.
