GUITARISTS I AM SO PISSED?

I got my dream guitar, and at a hefty price. I put my strap on, went to put in my input and the strap released and the head crashed onto the floor cracking it. I WANT TO ******* DIE! It dented through the ******* finish and cracked. I never want to play g

Answers:

Yo, ah feel yo pain... But it can be fixed. I've used strap-locks for decades, which never fail. Gitcha some.

One local music store and fine repair shop here, used to have a Wall of Bad Accidents. They guy's trombone after he backed the car over it. The French horn that was in the trunk when the driver tried to beat a TRAIN at a crossing. The flute that was left across a chair and Dad sat on it. All these are true, and there are many more. I have managed to get thru my entire professional career since 1973 without any kind of scary instrument addiction - but I have had other kinds, in the gym, in the kitchen, etc. that prevented me from playing for months. Most of us do. So as awful - and kind of expensive - as this is, just suck it up and tell them that the STRAP failed - and this was the result. You were not doing a Pete Townsend tribute move, nor were you drunk - it was just an accident. Your new baby will be home with you again soon - and better than new. You sincerely have all of our sympathies- but stuff happens. And - more than once. Just sayin' . . .

Here's another true story. I have a 79 year old friend who is strong, smart, healthy and REALLY active- and a TOP skiier since she was 5. She bought a second home in Utah 16 years ago, so she could ski every single day in season. Well - she needed a hip replacement. Came home to NY - got it done- went back and skiied all season. Following year, I get a call - "I am selling my condo - and moving back to NY full time. I just turned in my season ski pass, and sold all my top ski equipment. I am done forever." I was shocked and asked why!! She and 2 other people were waiting to board the lift, when a car jumped OFF the drive cable, and knocked them all down - causing injuries that ended 74 years of her skiing. Yep - it said "At your own risk" plainly - so no compensation for medical, etc. She can never ski again. You can play the guitar the day you get yours back.

Sorry to hear that, but it happens. I've heard a few luthiers even joke that Les Paul type guitars should come with a pre-broken and repaired headstock, if that's the type of guitar you have.

Some good news: that type of break and the repair is so common that any competent luthier will be able to repair it, possibly making it even stronger. What happened still sucks aquatic mammals, but it can be repaired, and you can return to rocking your dream guitar.

That is heartbreaking; I'm so sorry to hear that. I have done as much, years ago. It's annoying but pretty much anything is repairable. Just find a good lurthier.
