Guitar breaking day

There is a lot of digging going on right outside my house. So there is a lot of vibrations going through the house.
So today this happened to my guitar :see_no_evil::face_with_symbols_over_mouth::nauseated_face::sob:


A heavy sculpture fell down from a shelf located right on top of my guitar stand.
So i guess my guitar now have battlescars

Hi Trond,
Normally I would say, “now it is a guitar with an extra story, and many better ones may follow” but that seems like a gap and of course that doesn’t look good …or isn`t it open?
Here a :beer:
Greetings

That sucks and being an American, I’m sorry.

:flushed: So sorry to read that, Trond, what a mess! But happy, that the sculpture didn’t hit you :persevere:. Oh dear!

Think of it a Mojo. Just like people guitars get shaped by life experiences. You should see the Mojo on my 1947 Gibson. If that guitar could talk the stories it could tell.

Hehe. No its not open. Its just deformed a bit on the edge, so hopefully that will not open up furher down the road.

It shouldn’t open up it look like the black part binding is bent in.

Okay, then I’ll stick with this you Dramaqueen “now it’s a guitar with an extra story, and may many better ones follow” :joy:

On the other hand, you change guitars faster than… well, I’ll just keep it neat today… so it’s a waste of money or this on will last a long time. :blush:

:grimacing: O Yes be happy

Happy thoughts for you :smile:

It looks pretty solid, the binding got a dent and squeezed into the wood a bit. But it looks pretty solid, and it seems that the binding stills holds the top.

So i guess it will hold up. If not its probably a easy fix for any luthier down the road.

Well. I havent had any guitar stunts lately. But yes, if i wanted to sell, it has probably halfed itself in value… maybe its a sign that this is a keeper :grin:

Wow. A Gibson from '47?? A guitar that’s nearly 80 years old will certainly have some stories to tell. How is it sounding these days?? Is it an acoustic? If possible/convienent a photo would be appreciated!! :slightly_smiling_face:

That’s a real bummer but it does add “character”. . .hopefully won’t effect the tone!!

I’d echo that sentiment Trond. I am sure you could come up with some good lines, like it fell out of the tour bus !

Ouch, bummer. But I agree, it needs a better story, like you had to use it to fend off all your rabid fans or something.

Sorry for you and your guitar, Trond. It’s a bummer, but I agree to pre-commentors: It’s a chance for a very good story behind the scar. :grin:

Someone tried to rob it and you fought it back, stuff like that. You could even write a song on how it got the scar. I hear some Johnny-Cash-vibes. :rofl: :+1:

There is a lot of good points. Not as depressed anymore.
I can see the charm with some wear signs and battle scars.
I dont think the top is going to break so its probably all good.
Dont need to be so carefull with it anymore either since its allready have a few scars.
Not sure how that «story» going to be though. Maybe its good enough as is. It was hit by an 4 kg chunk of steel formed as a Tiger that i Bought on a market in Afgahnistan back in the days :grin:

So it got attacked by a Tiger :tiger: or better yet, you got attacked by a tiger and had to bet it off with your guitar.

Ouch, I bet you winced when that happened.

Now it’s a relic though, with legit battle scars.
