Holy crap! A few minutes ago I was leaning back in my computer chair when one of the wheels broke off. I fell backwards and on the way down my elbow hit/scraped the headstock of my schecter and the end of the high e string left a two inch cut which atm won't stop bleeding...

Has anyone else hurt themselves with a guitar?

Whenever I get hurt by one of my guitars, it is always caused by the high e string. That's one of the reasons why the bass is safer than the guitar.

That reminds me of this one time. My friend and I were trying to teach this guy how to tune the guitar. He was tuning the high e up, and he asked "Is this one supposed to be G?" Before we had a chance to say or do anything, the string snaps and whips across his arm, leaving a scar the entire length of his forearm. Not only was it tuned a step and a half too high, it was an .011 gauge string!

I once may have accidentally smashed our bass player with my guitar. He has a very pretty scar on his arm, but the guitar was fine.

Once, my high E string snapped and cut my left pinkie finger, leaving a tiny scar below the fingernail. Another time, I was jumping around with my guitar during a show, and it bounced up, fell back down, and the back of it smacked me square in the nuts. I think I hid it pretty well, so no one knew what happened, but my nuts hurt for about a song-and-a-half.

lmao

I actually haven't been injured by any of my guitars yet. idk if I'm just careful or if I'm just lucky but the worst I've gotten is probably a tiny prick on the finger when changing strings

About a week ago, I was playing, and I was using the tremolo and I cut my finger somehow whilst using said tremolo. I didn't cut it bad, just a little cut.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

i cut my finger from snapping my high e while changing strings. other than that, just minor scrapes from old string edges cutting me when I'm throwing them away. But my friend, a drummer, hits himself in the head with his sticks almost every time he plays drums. It's ridiculous. He's so stupid, I don't even know how he does it, but he always manages to smack his mouth or forehead with his sticks. No wonder he's a drummer...

Once, when I was having my guitar repaired, I was using a loner guitar and I just got it out of the case and I was getting it in tune. I did a full turn on the tuning head of the first string and about a half of another one. The string snapped and it came hurtling towards my face.

Luckily, instinct kicked in and I whipped my hand up in front of my head and the string pierced my hand, right through some skin by my pinky and out the other side, out the fleshy part of my palm. I didn't know what happened right away so when I went to get a replacement string, I stood up and the string tugged on my hand and tore the hole a bit and hurt like all Hell itself.

I still have a little scar from the entry wound.

Me too lol

It's gotten to the point where if I'm in my room with my door closed (which means I'm doing something with my guitar) and my sister in the adjacent room hears "F***!!" she'll yell through the wall, "Matt are you changing strings again?"

I was playing the symphony of destrucion solo a long time ago, and I remember sliding to like the 17th fret of the high e string really fast, and getting a bunch of little tiny pieces of metal stuck in my finger...it was like the metal you get from handleing a bicycle chain....it was weird ):

Just trying to learn that solo hurts my feelings.

However, I will learn it.

When I had just started out playing (no calluses).........I ran my index finger up the high e and cut it right open, blood and lolz all around!

One time during band practice my Rhythm guitarist tried to look cool and swung his guitar around his shoulder. As you can probably guess, his strap kinda came off and as it came around, it flew straight into my side ><. We now have a no guitar flinging near other people rule.

I copped a high B string in the corner of my eye once. When I pulled it out, I cut open the outside corner of my eye. It wasn't that bad but it hurt like a mother, everytime I blinked.

I stab my self with poorly trimmed string ends all the time. I also get a plethora of minor burns whilst tinkering with my VJ, as well as small shocks from messing with the grounds on old guitars.

And every time I drop my Charvel clone on my foot, everone in my building knows. Sucker weighs like 12 pounds.
