Well I have been afraid to do it ever since i read slash's book when he divebombed with is les paul and the neck snapped of and cut his face and he had to go to the hospital.
but he had a neck thru
if u have a bolt on neck, is there a possibility that the same thing cud happen?
is divebombing just something i should avoid??

yes it is possible but VERY hard to get a full dive. most of the time people cant even get it past a half step.

Thats because he wasn't using a tremolo, he was pushing on the neck to bend it a bit, which relieved some of the tension in the strings. Thing is, he pushed too much, and the neck gave out. If you use a tremolo, there's no risk of anything like that(strings breaking are a totally different story though.... )

Agreed with everybody else here.
If you have a Floyd, especially a hanging Floyd, go ahead.

Well 1st off Slash probably had a bigsby or something on his les paul those things weren't made for dive bombs, plus Slash is drunk most of the time he probably fell on the neck and it broke on his face. Avoid doing divebombs jeezus chrisst, you might as well throw away your trem arm and never walk outside again cause you might get hit by a car or contract a disease. Please some1 explain to me how you can break your guitar neck from doing a dive bomb. I am sitting here playing with my trem as hard as I can and no snapage of any sorts.

How the **** do you divebomb without a trem? To Google!

EDIT: Never mind.
