    Totally fine. Try that with a Les Paul.

    My brother did that to my Casino. Took a little chunk (mostly finish, a little wood) on the edge of the headstock between tuner keys. Ugh!

    Did it years ago with my buddy's Jazz bass. He now calls it "Nick" :D

    Have you ever seen pictures of Hendrix destroying a strat or Townson a SG. Man they had to work at it. I'd dare say the SG neck at headstock would be first to go in a standoff.

    BTW_I did hit my project Affinity Squier Strat on the fan right on the end of the headstock, couldn't find nothing! More damage from clip on tuners than anything else. Platefire

    Yeah, smashing a Rickenbacker into the ceiling actually kickstarted Townsend's career:

    I'm 6', and the ceilings are low. I had just tuned it up, stood up, and took the guitar off to let the dog in.

    Zzzzzzzrrrrrrapppp. Brand new thinline neck that was a Christmas gift. Could hardly bear to look, even. New tuners I'd saved up for...

    don't worry too much ;) teles are tough, the worst is that you have some small dings here and there over time, perfectly normal.
    Cheers

    I'm not an expert,but I have dropped my strat DOZENS of times and I'm mean really hard and it didn't hurt a thing.

    I was putting a shirt on and stuck my arm in one and almost broke my arm:lol:

    How many times did your guitar go around before you pulled it out of the fan ?

    The one thing that ever happened when I dropped my Strat was that the trem springs all came unhooked because the inertia block moved on impact when it was subjected to some actual inertia. :D Of course, that's only a problem if the trem is set to float.

    I apologize but I had to laugh. The visual and your facial reaction was too much. I can easily see myself doing that. My house is all fans and small rooms.
