That must feel awful, but at least it's an easy, inexpensive fix. When I was looking for someone to repair an old guitar, two techs offered to fix the soundboard cracks for about $40, then $20 for each additional crack.

As long as none of the braces were knocked loose, your guitar can be fixed in no time. Though as a precaution, I would loosen the strings to reduce stress on the soundboard. =(

That's why I'm always

That's why I'm always super-cautious when my guitar are lying around. Don't want to hurt them :(

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

*tears*

I even said "noooo" when I saw the title, and then when I saw it was you I was all the first line of this reply.

I have nicked my guitar in a few places. Is the damage structural or can you still play it? I think if you can still play it you should make a recording as soon as possible to help get used to it.

Just...don't rest your arm on it? I dunno. It looks like just a crack but obviously if it can't take the weight don't play it till it's fixed..

And then I realized that the chord progression from Chrono Cross's Another World is the same progression as the chorus from Peace of Mind by Boston, and life was never quite the same.

You should play something to cheer yourself up. Probably something with a lot of percussion.

Wait so is that an old recording or with the guitar post-crash?
