hi guys

i really need your help.i own a js 10th chromeboy..have had it for about 5 years now,,and in my opinion there,s no better sounding guitar..

i started playing after i heard satriani,s flying in a blue dream.and vai,s passion and warfare..and am a huge satriani fan,,so you can imagine the joy when i was able to get my hands on the js 10th

only last night i was playing in a local pub(bar),when the guitar strap decided to come off the guitar as i was tuning,,the guitar bounced off the ground breaking a nice chunk from the body...im still in shock,,im so fu45ing gutted..now the guitar still worked and i got through my gig...so the damage is cosmetic,,but i still want to get the body fixed up..if i can

so if ANYBODY has ANY INFORMATION on how i can go about getting this sorted..maybe someone has had this happen to them,,maybe you could give me some tips

any info would be greatly greatly appreciated

thanks

john

try contacting Rich from ibanezrules.com , he seems to be one of the people most acquainted with the rarer Ibanezes like the chrome ones and he should be able to give you a better answer

holy shit...I don´t think you can do something to get any close to original...


Looks like the guitar is built of plaster, when you look into the inside.

Ouch! My god, man. No suggestions, only sympathy. Maybe get some straplocks going.

I hope you get it sorted out.

I strongly second this - Martin Simms and the guys there will help out. It's not going to be cheap, but they will be a great help getting it sorted.

leave it as it is, it gives it character and makes it look used

Wow, that made me cringe when I saw it, sorry man. If it can't be repaired, at least someone should be able to help you prevent the damage from continuing. If left alone I'd say all that chrome will slowly chip away, get your baby to a doctor soon.

Same question, it does not look like any form of woody.
