UPDATE: can someone tell me if this G chord sounds in tune to you?

g_test.mp3


my piece of **** guitar strap just came off on me causing my guitar to crash to the ground

brand NEW agile les paul got ****ed up

I'm gonna murder someone



I'm really scared that the fall may have bent the neck:




what the hell do I do now?

how do I check the neck for damage. The thick e string is buzzing now but I can't tell if its been detuned. obv I can't plug it in until I get this ****ing jack fixed now


I can't believe this just happened to me. this guitar was the only thing keeping me sane

Yea, looks like the output jack plate is smashed in. easy fix. get a new one, replace it, check your jack itself, see if the ground and hot wires were unsoldered, probably the cause of the buzzing anyway.

No it was due to the g string getting detuned down a half step due to the fall. Though the g is still buzzing some (acoustically) I remember if it was before.

wires are still soldered, I plugged it into my amp and checked the pickup selector switch and the output, it seems okay but I'm still worried and ultimately pissed.

Do they sell guitar straps that don't freakin come off when they feel like it?

les pauls need strap locks. i learned the had way with my gibson, but all is well now. the neck looks fine from those pics but give it a close inspection just in case.

get strap locks

That's why if you wanna be metal rock band slash star, you need strap locks.
#10
Are you using strap locks? If not, buy some and install them right after you take the guitar to a repairman and have it looked over. Dunlop makes a good set. I don't know why all guitars don't come with strap locks.

wish I had known about strap locks. ****

i'm gonna take it into a guitar tech tomorrow to be safe. it still sounds a little off to me, but it could just be that I'm paranoid but the g chord sounds like its out of tune even though I tuned all the strings. maybe the intonation got thrown out of whack

thanks for looking at it guys

'cause the more guitars that you break, the more $ manufacturers make selling you replacements!

The first thing I noticed when I got my Agile AG-3000's was that if I kept the normal strap peg thing on the top then for sure the strap was going to come off of it. They are just too small to keep the strap on, so the next day I put on Shaller strap locks. I have an EC-1000, an Eclipse and an Epiphone, and a couple Agiles, all les paul bodies, and the Agiles are the only one with this "problem". I suggest you pick up a strap lock of some sort and you shouldn't have this happen again. Good luck with the repairs.

does anyone else know why the G chord would sound a little out of tune, i'm strumming it acoustically, not plugged in

i've checked the neck straightness, the intonation, and the tuning of the strings themselves, everything seems to look fine?

what else could have gotten messed up.

Schaller! That's what I have, not Dunlops. Dunlop does make a set that are supposedly pretty good but I've had good experience with my Schallers, though it was a little bit of a bitch to get it installed. One screw wasn't quite big enough, so I spent about an hour fiddlin' with wood glue and toothpicks to get it to fit.

the nut. G strings on les pauls are always out of tune though, i have played gibsons and even they are out of tune
#18
when i see threads like these, they scare me, this is the biggest fear I have with my guitar. I would get it professionally inspected, because there could be damage that is not visible through those pics.

chord the g and pluck all the strings envolved, fing the one outta whack and tune it. also make c chords and d chords and other chords to see if they are flat / sharp w`evr. remember wood is hard to bend. you may have to have it re set up tho. your luck nothing more broke than the jack inlet.

I'm sorry man, get some strap locks is all i can say. :/

Note: Gibson's G's aren't always out of tune. o_O
My dad's Les Paul sounds like an angel. Descending from heaven XD


EDIT: OH! Try putting a new set of strings on and tune them. Try it... :P
