Unhappy tragedy strikes my project RG......

So I picked up my painted guitar body that i have been lettering and airbrushing and was taking it to the van to take back to my guitar guy so he can clear coat it. It was placed in a box so i could transport it. my foot slipped on the first stair and i lost my balance, the guitar went straight out of the box striking two stairs on its edge and bouncing down the remaining stairs. i have 3 areas that are now down to bare wood with chipped paint and some body damage at other places. I am beyond upset..... i am distraught.

Dang, sorry that happened!!! Consider it "practice" for an even better try? Cup half full.

There's nothing worse than watching a tumbling guitar. At least the neck wasn't attached.

Did it give good acoustic tone?

Dude, at least it didn't break off anything. At least I hope. My sincere condolences on the loss of paint and the damage.

AND, most important, that YOU DIDN"T HURT YOURSELF.

Time to break the paint back out. That sucks, but it could have been much worse.
