Well i was messing around with the old charvel i have (very thin fast neck)

And well i noticed if i pull alittle on the neck the strings would lower (as if i was tightening them)

i tried in in amp, and it creates a small whammy effect.

I soon thought "OH SH!T THIS ISN'T GOOD"

Well i tried it on my accounstic and it did the same thing D8 and then on my otehr ecletric guitar *thick slow neck) and it did it too.


iasked my father and he told me "good" i said what =O.O=

he then told me thats something jimie hendrix used to do on his guitars too create strange sounds when it looked like he wasnt touching the whammy bar...

Do all guitar neck bend alittle (not alought) when pulled down on a bit? or just ones that ahve thin neck.. or dose this mean my guitars a piece of junk

Yeah all do it. My PRS does as well as my strat. It's not always good for it. I cracked a strat neck, but it's cool.

EDIT: check out Jimmy Page, he does it all the time. But he like...grabs the neck and frets a chord and bends it across his hip.

Dude there was a guy on here that was doing that , and he snapped the neck on his PRS so i suggest you dont do that.

tom morello had anold Kay guitar and he used to bend the neck to get crazy feedback when he was in the band The Electric Sheep. personally i wouldnt do it....
There once was a chicken named Cluck.
He once was told that he sucked.
He tried to say something
but couldn't say nothing
and came up with "Cluckity-Fuck."

Peace out.
