    Do you know how much it’s going to cost for me to fix this door frame? :mad:

    I would check the door, it may not fit the frame anymore. ;)

    I was already crafting my snappy response before I clicked on the thread.

    One time my tele fell over on stage. This is after the repairs (to the stage):

    Just consider the door frame reliced and road-worn. People pay extra for that!

    I bang mine into things all the time.
    I feel sorry about the items that have been besmerched by my Telecaster.

    Bang the rest of your door frames so they all match.

    You could sell off the undamaged parts of the jamb for a Frankenjamb build. Header piece, Blocked latch plate with era correct screws, hinge side assembly.

    That would be a partsjammer.

    It's always around the house! My Tele is all banged up now from hitting it on the desk where I sit and practice and record.
