A bit of a tumble...


Recommended Posts

Ohhh dear, I was hoping some experienced builders or luthiers might offer some thoughts...

My girlfriend accidentally knocked over my 1981 Ibanez AS-100. With the stand as a sort of fulcrum, it slammed face-down into the floor so hard it made my eyes water... and I believe the nut took the brunt of the impact.

Visually, it seems there are only a few chips and cracks in the lacquer, but the intonation is out of whack and there is some slight string buzz... It was absolutely perfect before.

I haven’t dared adjusting anything yet. Are there any critical points I should investigate? Maybe take it to a luthier?
