I left it on a padded office chair, leaning against the back, butt on the chair, walked away and seconds later: THUD! I winced and turned around slowly, thinking "please, no." It slid down the slippery fabric, hit the hard wood floor and didn't break! I looked it over carefully: headstock intact, no broken tuners or hardware, nothing! Not clear where it impacted the floor even since the nitro already had a few dings and there wasn't an obvious new one. Was it still in tune? Hell no, it's not my Tele. But I'll take it. Just wanted to post some anecdotal evidence--it's not an automatic headstock break if you drop your LP. Carry on.
