I guess that's why they call it dope.
Lol. Why am I not surprised to see you're from Philadelphia... . Don't you know you're going to give these old timers here heart attacks with shenanigans like that? "These young whipper-snappers don't know any respect" "get off my lawn!" "It's gotta be real butterscotch blonde, not that fake color they got nowadays!" Etc.. Etc...
(One time I asked if anyone had ever smashed a guitar on stage... The response was... Not great.)
Oh man...I cringe when young kids run past my tele while its sitting in a floor stand ..... this thread was like the ole... could not drive by a crash site and not look scenario..but after your first heave ho...I couldn't watch any more... broke my heart
Can you see why people said it would break you first though
sorry dude............but stupid, just plain stupid!
Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should.
Yeah; the OP had a momentele lapse of reason!
Dude... To intentionally do that is just ********....that said, Fenders are tough. I once had a 300# clumsy behemoth trip onstage and slam my AmSe Strat down on a wood stage with all his weight.... I was traumatized until I picked up my Strat and launched into Johnny B. Goode....and it was still in tune..,true story..,and that MF SLAMMED my guitar to the floor with his full fat weight pushing it down.
Epic first post. If your goal was to create an indelible first impression, you totally succeeded: every person who sees that video will have a strong opinion about you, one way or the other.
Unfortunately, the opinion will be only one way.
Step awaaay from the crack pipe dude. That was just dumb. P.s. welcome
what I want to know is, what did you do to destroy your credibility so badly that this was the only way to restore it?
Man Cards ain't cheap, yo.
Im 66 yrs old, and have been trying to understand the younger genetation. This sure didn't help me at all! Good Lord...
Well, the rest aside, that is true. I stopped using wall hangers when I once accidentally knocked my Jazz bass off of a bad one and it crashed 3 feet to the floor. Made quite the racket, but didn't leave a mark or even knock it out of tune........
Holy lord that was hilarious. I mean, it wasn't my tele. I don't even want one like it....there are a bajillion teles that he didnt throw out there waiting to be discovered. Also, this thread is priceless.
I'm actually not surprised. I've seen guitar smashing rock star have trouble busting up Fender instruments. Usually the body splits or the neck screws pull out of the neck, but I've never seen the neck or headstock snap off like the Gibsons.
My first real band I was in, I was sitting on the drummer's kit showing him some rudiments (was a drummer for a couple years in high school), and he wanted to play my Stratocaster. He picked it up without asking, and I said "Hey, careful with that!" He said something like "I'm not going to do anything with it, I just want to check it out." I said he couldn't, and he leaned it back where it had been leaning against my amp, but where I had it leaning backward and well balanced he set it down almost straight up. It fell forward onto it's face, onto the concrete basement floor. Hit pretty hard, and the edge of the maple board hit the leg of one of his cymbal stands.
I jumped up, grabbed my guitar, checked it out and it was fine. He said he was sorry, and I quickly forgot about it. Now, if there'd been damage, would have been a different story.
I treat my guitars as tools, but similarly would never open my toolbox and throw drills etc against a wall!!
if you can't see how rock and roll it is to throw your telecaster against a wall and prove how unbreakable it is, i don't know. maybe you're too old.
It was some zany, harmless fun to be had on a rare Friday night. Perhaps also a byproduct of my warped sense of humor. I don't know what it says about my generation or anything (I'm 34). People “relic” their guitars all the time, which was essentially the end result of this.
The thing is, had I done the same thing to my SG, I wouldn't have been able to play it in band practice tonight, which I did do with my Tele as if nothing had happened. Just another day in the neighborhood as far as the band was concerned. Teles rule, and Leo Fender was a genius and all that stuff. Rock on!
