im staying at my grandmas and while i do i like to play her old Washburn
its a classical guitar model C-30 maybe up to 50 years old
well when i was trying to sleep last night i heard a string vibrate and the sound wood creaking so i looked at it and it looked perfectly normal

but when i woke up today the bridge was deattached and up by the head of the guitar (im guessing from the string tension)

any ideas what happened?

It's obvious. Your Grandma in a fit of rage and ecstasy took your guitar, played a shredding 20 minute jazz solo on it (unplugged of course) and then finished it off, by punching it (bare fisted) until sufficiently broken. To make sure no one could do that ever again.

+1. It's the only logical explanation.

I gotta hand it to you man, you really think outside the box.

So far, in fact, you can't even SEE the box.

Perhaps the wood warped? Climate caused string tension? Could be any number of things.

Was it strung with metal strings when you atre supposed to use nylon? That will greatly increase the tension, normal nylon strings don't have truss rods.

I see what you're doing. You want someone to suggest a plausible excuse which you can then show your granny.

GRANNY (Weeping): Why! Why did you break my guitar. It's almost as old as me!
DIMEBAGLIVESON: It wasn't me. It happened when I was asleep. Honest!
GRANNY (Wiping snot from her nose): But that's impossible. Guitars don't just break.
DIMEBAGLIVESON: But look what the 'experts' said on an internet forum.
GRANNY: What's an internet forum?
DIMEBAGLIVESON: Oh just read this you wrinkly old bint!
GRANNY: Your Grandma in a fit of rage and ecstasy took your guitar, played a shredding 20 minute jazz solo on it (unplugged of course) and then finished it off, by punching it (bare fisted) until sufficiently broken.
DIMEBAGLIVESON: See!?
GRANNY (keels over dead)
DIMEBAGLIVESON: OK, yeah I broke it when I playing a James Blunt medley.
GRANNY (rising from the dead): You mother****er!!!!

And so on.
