DAMN! How many of you have guitars that have suffered injuries yet you still use them

#1
Ehh mine's not much--but today at GC my guitar was in its case on an amp, then I thought the case was shut then it opened, causing the guitar to fall out.

...Only some paint cracks but it looked pretty damn bad. You?

On my Epi Explorer Only:

First day I had it, I was jamming and it fell off its straps onto the concrete garage floor, knocking a chunk off the bottom and some more paint damage.

Then over a year or so the headstock got a ding and a whole bunch of cracks.

Still plays/Sounds nice

I attempted to spin my guitar around my neck on stage once.

The strap broke,

The guitar flew,

The bridge pickup died.


I still love the sound of the neck pickups in it though. It's a cheap Johnson electric with stock pickups, but it's unique to me.

Not to sound like a prick, but if it's just a dead or undone wire, you can easily fix it yourself. If it's actual, internal damage to the pickup itself, nevermind.

I've opened it up myself, and later had it checked, and it was the pickup. I wish I could have fixed it, but the bridge humbucker wasn't too great anyway.

i had a ****ty Epi LP Studio a while back, and i had a leather strap that was old and frayed.
so i bent down to play with the knobs on my amp, when the strap came off and hit the amp JUST right so that a crack in the wood of the neck went from the head to about the 7th fret.
it was so weird. and i just sat there on my bed, eyes wide, staring at the damage.

My friend, his drummer and i were outside the local bar, before they had a show and the guitarist was doing guitar flips since he could with his new straps, he let the drummer try and he threw it a little too hard...


...RIP Ltd viper 400
the neck had a crack 2/3 down the fretboard, and the knobs on the body were ripped out and the docks for them were br00talized, i have a pic of it on my computer, but i'm too lazy to put it on photobucket right now.

oh and two tuning keys ripped clean off somehow...

I set my epiphone les paul on the stand and started to walk away. Only after it was too late did I realize that I hadn't balanced it properly, and it was slowly tilting forward. It fell right off the stand forward and the front of the body landed right on the corner of my solid metal wah pedal, which was located conveniently right there. It left a nice little dent, but my guitar is black so it is somewhat unnoticeable unless you look closely.
