Hi actually around year ago i was move back from usa where i was live 8 years to my country Czech rep
2 weeks ago me and my partner to decide to try luck again on another country and we are now on Scotland and trying to find job

now the problem... through the fly from the Czech to Scotland the guitar was on hard case....but when i open the box at my sister place the guitar was out of tune.....thats be ok but when i pick the guitar and try to search if anything is ok i was find out there is not something ok.
i got Jackson sl2..japan model and when i shake the guitar then is something fly inside
hope the trouble dont be big? looks like there is something with the tremolo system..i am not expert and i dont wana take the guitar to repair until i find job here mellow.gif

wow man, that's sad!
go and open it, you cannot damage a guitar just by look at it. perhaps it's something you can repair easily. per example, a spring (?) jump out or something.

I don't know the if the word spring is correct for this... look the pic.

I don't think this is anything serious. Possibly it was there before the transport too and you didn't notice it. Open up the back and see if something is loose. It should be easy to repair for sure on your own.

Like your new avatar Bogdan. Good forum picture, gives a personality to your posts.

Regarding the guitar, yeah, you can figure it out probably, probably something mechanical, not major. I have fixed something like that before, but you may have to observe and think a bit.

Regarding Scotland, how do you understand those people? I like the accent, it sounds neat. But I have been watching this crime drama I got from my library called Taggart, which has run in Scotland for many years. Without the text option, I can't understand half of what any of them are saying.

yes, I'd say open it carefully. On the back and see what's going there.
