I feel awful. I just chipped the pointy part of my EX400. It slid a few inches while iw as kneeling down, slid into the metal part at the bottom of doorframes.. it planned it right off. But i managed to stick part of it back on.

I guess i'm fishing for reassurance But i'd like to see your guitar wounds and how you did it?

Would be interesting.

i played guitar for my high school's show choir (about 5-6 years ago, i'm graduating college in 3 months) and got about 1/3 of the long end of a Jackson RR3 knocked off whilest doing a slide across the stage. i didn't even notice until afterwards when someone came up to me with the end of it in their hand. i'd give pics, but i'm at work.

just after finishing a gig one of the strap locks on the guitar broke.... and got a huge chip on the bottom.... i almost cried.... then remembered the guitar was the one i borrowed from a friend... made me feel even worst...

point of the story....if you **** up a guitar... better your guitar that someone else's baby

My G-400 has a random dent on the back, which i have absolutely no idea how it got there. All i know is it fell over and landed on its side and toppled onto its front and for some reason the back dented.. Its in the usual position you'd find a dent caused by a belt, but i never wear a belt...

^no stupid responses to this please
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

if it's a matte finish, you can color the wood with p ermanent marker to make it less obvious

could be buttons actually... at least i can identify it among others now, since just about every guitarist within a 20 mile radius of where i live has a G-400 in cherry red...

Mine has a bit of paint blur on the tip of the headstock from when me and my friends performed paranoid in our music class, I started it with boureé (classical piece if you dont know, very known) then the bass kicks in with the slide at the start of the verse on paranoid and I smacked the cymbal with my headstock (oh yeah, i have stage presence ) then went from there

Also a few scratches and dings but nothing major.

nah it's like a laquer (sp?) finish thing? There's like a half centimeter gap between where the finish still is and the wood underneath. I'd need to get it like specially treated or something...
#20
All of my guitars are still in mint condition. I'd die if any of them got even the smallest scratch.

That said, my bass guitar is scratched up, chipped, dented, had the headstock broken, hit against stuff, dropped, and all the rest. Bizarrely, I like it like that.
#21
My PGM has a few marks and dents on it. It's ironic that the guitar that I've taken the most care of has gotten the most damage. It even fell off a guitar stand when I wasn't even in the room. Nothing like hearing a thumb, returning to your room to see your £800 guitar face down.

I find it funny how anal some people are about their guitars. Thinking about it, the guitar that I've abused the most hasn't got dented at all. I've banged it off the stage repeatedly, dropped it, punched it etc etc doing feedback tricks live and it's fine.

My jacksons got like a few little dents in it, that its gotten over the last year or 2.

the worst thing that probably happened to it, was when my friend moved it and leaned it against my amp, instead of putting on a stand, and then eventually it slipped off of the amp and slammed against his amp, so now the neck has a small dent in it. Which is like not even noticeable unless you play the guitar and feel it.
#27
Ehh, Im not totally sure, but i think its either a '72 or '73. Don't have a lot of information about it because the serial number is pretty broad and usually comes up as a standard made from 72-74. But the guy i bought it from said he bought it in 73, so that narrows it down.
#28
My strat has scratches all over the pickguard, but the body is in general good shape.
But... My friend bawled over his starter pack yamaha (the black metalflake one), when he dropped it on MY classic 50! My tolex was all messed up from the spot where he dropped, and i didn't give a crap. His guitar only got a 1/4 inch dent in the body (it's basswood, so yeah).

i rekon that a perfectly spotless guitar with not a single blemish hasnt been played properly. dont get me wrong i look after my guitars very carefully, but its prety much impossoble not to get a mark of some sort or another. i mean whats the point of buying a expensive great sounding guitar if you have to wrap it in bubble wrap everytime you go on stage. fairenuf, if your careless and u drop it or watever than ur a fool, but there are somethings in life that cant be helped.

end rant/ lol

Big chip out of the back of the left horn, other than that in perfect condition. The chip was there when I bought it, gave me a $100 discount .

I had my older Ibby on my couch, and one night as I went to sleep I tossed my iPod over to the couch and I hear a click sound. The next morning I find a 4-5 mm dent. I have a ****load of pick scratches and other little nicks as well on my older Ibanez.

Awesome man. How is she? I know they had some issues in the 70's but if you get a nice one, they're still amazing guitars.

I really want a guitar with a nitro finish, they just look so amazing as they wear away.

She's definitlely a player. The neck is perfect. The middle pickup has a slight buzz but i dont use it much so thats ok. It really is an amazing guitar, although i think the tension from my extra large strings has done some damage to the nut, because i was to stupid to space it before putting them in.

Ah it'll still work.



go buy a micro-fiber rag from guitar center and give it a good whipe, it will be fine. you might want to condition that fretboard. it looks like it got ran over by a car or something.

I find the middle pickup to be of very little use on it's own. Sounds tasty in the 2nd and 4th positions though ^^ You've got a keeper there mate

the main thing about knicks and scratches and dents and **** is that just dont worry about it
if you like the guitar and dont plan on selling it later on then just play it and enjoy it
dont be paranoid about
scrathes and dents happen
dont sweat the small stuff
