Well i went and grabbed my guitar earlier today as usual to jam, (its a semi-hollow ibanez) and i sat down on a chair and played a few chords feeling pretty good, When a HUGE ASS WOLF SPIDER CRAWLED OUT OF ONE OF THE HOLES IN THE BODY! Im severely arachnophobic and It was right next to my hand; i literally almost threw my guitar across the room. If it wasnt my favorite guitar then i would have. So i quickly dropped it in its case and the spider ran off somewhere in my basement.


So now im afraid to go back and play my guitar in fear of there being more making webs and **** in there.

In conclusion, what should i do to prevent this happening again?


also, share any stories of finding strange things in your guitar if you have em.

Edit: jesus there are a lot of spider threads today.

Put tape over the F-holes. I've seen George Benson with the holes on his guitar taped up.

Or better just write a really brutal song about spiders living in my guitar because its so metal, and they help me play taps and sweeps by running along the strings and stuff.

Just so you know they can produce eggs quickly so dont be surprised if more come out after a period of time.

Haha, I had a rat inside of my Ibanez Artcore AFS75T Hollow Body guitar xD My cat dragged it up from the basement still alive and accidently threw it into one of the F-Holes of the guitar. It bled inside there and everything and we had to disinfect it and ****. I wish I could've kept him in there and named him Steve, so he could come to my gigs and meet people

Kill it and super glue it to the guitar but tell people it is alive and you have learned to teach spiders to stay in one place by listening to the power of you rock

YEAH! Be a man. Men have no fears!

I play a hollow body and it never occurred to me that a spider might crawl in there until now...

I have had a spider inside my acoustic before, and I scooped it out. That being said, spiders don't normally scare me, because the bigger ones are usually the least dangerous. They have the same instincts as humans, they run before they fight. In Australia, we have massive spiders called Huntsman spiders and I handle them on occasion when I find one.

We also these spiders in Sydney called funnel webs but you don't go near them because they get pissed off real easy and they have massive fangs. Anyway, TS, just tape up the holes temporarily until you know they would have died from starvation or spray inside your guitae with Mortein.

This reminds me of the epic "THERE'S A MOUSE IN MY AMP"-thread.. or something.

Bad luck though, perhaps get your mother to check if it's still in there?
