Chelle E.

A Bad Recording Day

Recommended Posts

Chelle E.    1

I'd done a take and was playing thru the song again and the mic which was on a boom fell out of the boom and dropped onto my guitar putting 2 holes in it (beside the pickguard).

The sound (through the headphones) was earthshaking. I just feel bad that my guitar got hurt.

Guess you could call it a bad recording day.

Sorry to hear about that Chelle, how big are the holes should be repairable depends on the severity might be a job for a Luthier or you might be able to do it yourself, don't like seeing these things happen I always worry about my guitars, family are afraid to touch them.

Thanks X4S and Starsailor,

I checked this morning and a one inch crack appeared. Guess I just gotta let this one ride.

I'm just thankful it wasn't my Dove! I would have cried. But thanks, you're all such good people here

I feel for you Chelle.

My favourite guitar (Simon and Patrick) was knocked over and dinged at a Youth Choir 30th anniversary. It was pretty new then and I was very close to crying about it. I'm not sure there is anything they could do to fix it. It is a sunburst design.

Hope you find a suitable solution.

Ouch, so sorry to hear that. :(

Its hard for guitars that get used a lot not to end up with battle scars. I remember setting my Tele flat on a chair, I put my heavy Brass slide on the desk......it rolled off right onto the Tele and put a huge nick in the finish. (not as bad as your hole, but it still hurt.)

Bob,

Ouch, poor Tele. Yeah they all get wounded no matter what. Sorry to hear about your Tele. Darn slide, lol.

It was my fault on mine though, I didn't set up the mic, someone else did and left off the sock and didn't tape it to the boom etc., I should have done that. It was a lesson.

Hearing these stories makes us more aware of how fragile our loved instruments really are. I look at mine now and shudder at the thought of what could happen. Chelle and Nutty I feel for you. And SlickCat, even if it was small, it would've hurt too. I wish you all a speedy recovery, whatever it takes.
