My life sucks so much. And its even worse now. I accidentally knocked the case of my caparison guitar when I was putting it away and it fell down and hit the guitar and knocked a HUGE chunk of it out of the guitar. F*****G 1700 pound down the drain. I've only had it two months and it was an awesome guitar and now its got a huge chunk out of it. Why is my life so rubbish. I can't do anything with it. It is beyond repair. It looks hideous now. I'm in tears. I've wasted 1700 pound of my hard earned cash and I havem't even paid for it yet. I have to pay for another 22 months for a guitar that is ruined. I may as well just kill myself as my guitars are the only thing that bring me happiness in life. Now it is messed up.

Don't worry man. Things seem like s### right now, but they will certainly get better. I know how it feels to damage your guitar, just the other day I knocked a pretty bad chip in the paint of my Ibanez, felt like crap for a while. I know it feels bad, but don't think of killing yourself over a guitar. It's still playable isn't it?

sad.gif eek mate that sucks so bad when stuff like that happens!

Are you sure it cant be repaired in any way, where is the damage?

Many years ago I was given my first real decent guitar by a management company, a US Jackson custom was worth around £1500 at the time, awesome guitar my absolute pride and joy, it was translucent red, beautiful finish, as I was playing it fell off the strap and I dropped it, it fell really awkwardly and weird, two of the frets popped out, chipped the rosewood fingerboard and put a big chunk in the bottom (at the front of the guitar) I got it repaired but I was the same as you feel now, it was totally ruined, I feel for you mate, I felt terrible and I had been given it, you`ve spent your hard earned cash on it sad.gif

It's not playable because I can't even look at it any more. It was the most beautiful guitar I'd ever seen and now it's ugly and I can't look at it. I loved the guitar and protected it and always kept it in the case and never took it to band practice or gigs as I wanted it to be perfect for ever for me to practice on it. Now it's ruined :'(

The damage is on the front. A massive chunk of it has been knocked out. Might in plain sight every time I pick the guitar out of the case so I don't think I can look at it again. I'm so miserable as I loved that guitar and it was my best guitar by miles. Not even the Parker compares to it sad.gif

Sorry to hear it man. Is it definitely beyond repair. Can you play it or something at least. THere must be a solution.

I have an advice, I know it's difficult but try to calm down and not stress your nerves. Health is the most important thing in this world not money or guitars! Trust me. Don't worry too much. I know it is hard but life goes on. It will be ok! smile.gif

that really sucks, especially an expensive guitar like that. when i had my king v it was getting chipped alot because of the body style, but that was a $300 dollar guitar, nothing like yours. i cant imagine how much that must suck.

I was taking it into work to show some friends tomorrow who play guitar but I can't take it now as it's hideous and I always look after everything I own sad.gif I don't know if it can be repaired but I know it will never be the same. I think I will stick it on ebay. At least if I get 300 pound maybe towards the 1700 it wont be as bad a deal but I'd still be losing 1400. sad.gif

Yeah it definitely sucks but look at it this way:

- no one can steal your amazing Caparison guitar because it has YOUR mark on it - pretty obvious mark
- Steve Vai himself said that it's only the sound that matters and his EVO JEM is totally destroyed but it sounds amazing and he doesn't even want to repair it so it doesn't loose it's sound - and it still stays his best guitar
- one day you'll get big and people will pay much more than 3400 for that guitar with a huge chunk out of it
- be happy you didn't destroy the neck so it's still playable and not only playable - it is the same Caparison guitar!!!!
- now it's your new CUSTOM guitar wink.gif
- when you have the wall painted in fresh new white color, your G/F comes in and tries to hit you with a tomato you get this huge red sign on your wall...first you're mad, 2 days later you don't care wink.gif
- buy a new car - hit it slightly in the wall, take off a huge part of your black color - in 2 days you don't care - hey, that car costs much more than the guitar wink.gif

Cheer up buddy! Now plug in your baby and play some tasty solo - you'll feel better straight away wink.gif

Didnt you pre-order a BC Rich Stealth?

Man, I'd kill for one of those + try not to think about what your guitar is worth to other people, its go a bit of a bash in it for sure, but thats just part of the attitude, my telecasters hacked to bits but I still love the thing. smile.gif

i'm really sorry ... my thoughts are with you.

i think i can imagine how you feel right now. I have had a complete loss of most of my gear a few years ago. First i thought it's the end of the world, but finally that what is left you will love even more !! but by now it's painful ...

My other guitars are bashed around but I gig with those. This one was special. It was my pride and joy and I loved having it in the room and playing on it. Now I can't look at it so I'm just gonna try and recuperate as much losses as possible. How much do you think I can get for the guitar with a chunk in the front if it cost me £1700. Do you think I could get £300 off someone for a damaged guitar. I just threw the guitar across the room in the case however so if anyone wants it ask soon before I snap the neck off the ugly piece of s***. That's all ugly pieces of s*** like me deserve though.

sad.gif Sorry to hear that..

But i'm sure there must be some way to repair it? .. the missus had a little car accident with a pole that just came out of nowhere not so long ago. it looked REAL bad, but it was fixed like it was nothing.

Well, you cant compare a guitar to a car.. but i'm still sure there's a way to fix it..
