it'll buff out
Same thing happened a week ago to my brother's Schecter custom shop Traditional. He always kept it at home in its hardcase. But this time he wanted to take it to our band rehearsal, so chose a light gigbag. At the end of the rehearsals, he grabbed the gigbag thinking it was closed... but it was open. The guitar fell... same damage as yours.
Now he wants to repair it. I don't agree: like this natural relic. I hate artificial relic but love the guitar with the signs of its story.
Well, those things had been made to be pllayed.
Putting it in a glass coffin is called Religion.
But I am sorry for you and I am sure it can be fixed if you really feel bad about it.
All the best,
You know what is said about disasters coming in threes... So better watch out for the next two.
It definitely sucks but you are also a bit lucky that it got hit in a place where the looks of the guitar are not that affected....i think this is a gorgeous guitar that should be played....if anything that should make you play it more....now that the...virginity of the finish is lost.....not worrying so much about the exra battlescars but just enjoy.
So sorry for your loss
The wood just wanted to breathe!
But yeah, that kinda stuff hurts the owner more than it hurts the guitar. But perhaps now you should feel free to take it everywhere!
Nobody will notice
Yikes! Still a sight to see though love the jack positioning very nice guitar!
Stupid question, I know. But exactly how did the Strat break out into fire ??
Eeesh... but atleast its on the backside and not the front.
It is a great looking guitar....I like it, wouldn't phase me, its a cool guitar...and it stayed in tune. Best ever.
My sympathies for your loss. It would take me more than an hour to recover from that. So, is your Walnut Elite one of the few with an ebony fret board? It looks kind of dark in the picture. My Walnut non Elite Strat has the solid walnut neck, and the most uniform brown body color I’ve seen in the type.
Wow ..that sucks I’d be pizzed off too.
As we say in the motorcycle biz, at 60mph, nobody will notice.
It does suck, though.
In over 35 years of gigging, I've only dropped one guitar...a Lester that hit a concrete floor squarely on the strap button. It bounced straight up and I caught it.
I think that moment and visions of snapped headstocks is what kept me from ever dropping another...so far.
I bet one of your guitars never hits the ground again.
I have to say, you have a very good attitude towards the mishap and towards the doggo who was just being a doggo. Hopefully the battle scar will bother you less and less over time.
Learned the hard way long ago when I was doing production sound for film on set that any case/bag/container needs to be checked to be sure that the case is closed AND fastened before being picked up... You'll only drop a microphone once in your life if you learn that way.
Even if I’m sure a case is latched, I keep one finger off the handle and over the lid in case the latches let go. Protection of the instrument is paramount, all other considerations are secondary. And yes Ripley, the crew is expendable!
What’s done is done... start thinking in solving the problem ... strip the lacquer of the guitar .... sand it smooth and respray with nitro.... after putting 6 or seven layers... let is cure for a week or two and start wet sanding with 1200 grid, 2000 grid and 3000 grid... Than polish it and all is brand new again... I can tell you,... this is most rewarding...
