Hey guys. I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Alpine White. And I...um...kinda dropped it. =/ Now there is an indent in the body. Soon after, I changed my low E string, and I got a fret buzz. Is this becasue im bad at changing strings, or because I dropped it? Please help me out. I want to know whats wrong before they embarass me at Gitter Center =/ They hate me there =[

im just kidding

when you replace a string it naturally buzzes until it "breaks in"

theres nothing wrong with your guitar

except the indent

It depends,

dont panic yet

it could just be that yes you do suck at restringing your guitar, or maybe a frets being knocked about and come unglued, not the worst thing in the world, its not the most expensive thing to repair

or

worst case, you've broken the truss rod, and it would be cheaper buying a new guitar than replacing that.

but if its just the body then i can only imagine that its your restringing mate. sorry i cant be much more help.

yeah if you've changed gauge without adjusting your truss rod and/or raised/lowered the bridge, that'll give a nice buzz.
