The strap of my guitar bag broke on Sunday and my guitar fell onto the pavement resulting in the damage below:
The guitar is a Takamine Santa Fe. I bought it for just under £500 about 11 years ago, but a new Takamine would set me back £800ish I think.
I’ve taped it up for now and fortunately the tone / action / electronics aren’t affected. It just looks knackered now.
What should I do?
- Just repair it yourself. A battered guitar looks cool
- Go and get it re-topped
- Treat yourself to a new guitar
- Claim off your contents insurance- good luck with that!
