Is that possible.....I'm pushed mine down all the way and it hasn't snapped.

Also, pics or your pants are on fire

It IS possible, it happened to my first guitar and my friends old guitar, I couldnt do anything about it

Have you tried getting it looked at by a luthier or someone?

ahh, i was afraid it would stuck there for good

and no, i aint got it looked at, it only happened yesterday, and tbh, i dont think it's worth it, it's only a squier after all

it snapped right in there, so i guess it would require a bloody powerful magnet

you guys sure there's nothing else that can be done?

Damn, guess it depends on how deep its in there and other aspects but judging by the way youre describing it, Id assume it would need some heavy duty power tools to even be considered fixable.

Hey, what a coincidence, mine AND my friend's were also Squiers.

Go to the hardware store and buy an "Easy Out." Should do the trick.

i would try to superglue the rest of the arm to the part thats stuck in there, and slowly turn it out

that sounds like a pretty good idea actually, cheers
