not even out of tune, I hope the floor is ok
the only guitar i leave out like that, for a reason
The best beaters in the world! I have two that are nicely reliced.
I traded a guy a perfectly good strat for a tele that had a chunk of wood knocked off because I thought it looked cool and sounded awesome. He said his drummer dropped something on it.
this one should have been damaged, not a scratch, and literally 100% in tune
My '52 RI hit the floor during a gig when my guitar strap failed. Chipped the finish but stayed in tune.
At another gig that was outdoors the wind came up and blew the guitar and stand onto my pedalboard........................ not a scratch!
I got nervous when people get too close to my SG (intact headstock) including me, but yeah my tele has chunks out of it and it keeps on ... well, not ticking, but it's fine.
One of the many reasons I love Fender Teles and Strats.
The headline makes it sound like it did it all by itself. Did it have too much to drink?
Wait, I forgot, a Tele can hold it's liquor too!
There's real damage and then there are surface marks. I'd guess "without a scratch" means a good poly finish? I don't mind the dings and like I nitro just because I do, but poly is dismissed by many unfairly.
Good thing it wasn't a Gibson...
Ha! That’s what I expected reading the thread title.
In China, a bag of rice fell on the floor.
I don't hang Telecasters by the neck. They slip out of the hangers due to the skinny headstock. Ask me how I know.
I think you could drag a Tele behind a truck and it would stay intact, and possibly sound better afterwards
I dropped my Tele onto my pedalboard once, and there’s a 3PDT shaped ding between the 11th and 12th frets now, but it stayed in tune.
You guys buy cheap guitar stands.
My SG did that... onto SOFT SHAG CARPET and the headstock snapped off like I took an axe to it.
I did that to a 72 Les Paul ( my brothers ) when I was a kid. It still stings 40 years later - sorry to say. I would probably feel much better about it if it was my own though.
It was a very clean break and it got repaired by a wizard, so you can't even tell unless I told you.
But it's use value greatly exceeds its monetary value... meaning, it's more useful to me than the money I'd get from it, and I'm absolutely not nervous about taking it anywhere and doing anything to it, which is sort of liberating. Unlike my Les Paul which is basically like the bubble boy.
My tele and strat are the only two guitars that I dont care if they get scratched
If Keith Richards even endorses it to club overly enthusiastic fans, it can handle falling face down on the floor.
