Tragedy Strikes at 9:54pm

not 5 minutes ago, while restringing my guitar in preparation for the roadtest of my delicious new whiskey-soaked-rock-star-approved-post-illness voice, one of my guitar pegs broke off IN the guitar rendering me helpless and unable. I am shocked. I am bereft. I am wondering what the word is for superglue in korean.

Wait...a....minute!!!! unless this is a sign from God that it's OKAY! to spend some real money on a nice NEWWWWWWW guitar? A better guitar??? A guitar that is worthy of my new whiskey-soaked-rock-star-approved-post-illness voice??? If this IS some sort of christmas miracle, then maybe I should promise to only play Jars of Clay and Michael W. Smith songs on the new guitar...

Who am I kidding. I will not get a new guitar and I will not ever play jars of clay. So the deal is OFF. sigh. anyone know a good luthier in Seoul?

I think it's God telling you that it's time for your whiskey-soaked-rock-star-approved-post-illness voice to go acappella. Don't fight him -- he's the best Manager a girl could want.

Though I am always keen on an excuse to buy a new ax, if I understand your problem correctly, it should be easily fixable. If you mean the little pegs that hold the strings in toward the bottom, those cost less than $5 to replace. If you mean tuning pegs, they are also inexpensive and replaceable. There is some real tragedy here, however, which is that in the time it takes you to resolve the peg issue, the whiskey voice may have passed. And we all know that voice only comes once in a rare while. I send my deepest regrets and sympathy.

I am NOT sorry that you're peg broke because I got to laugh at this post.

Thank you.

I AM sorry that I said, "you're peg" on your blog. I'm sorry.

Guitars are such dear friends... does yours have a name?

I had to say goodbye to Tim, the guitar I had in Korea. I guess it was time.

If you broke a machine head, you can replace those easily. Usually just with a quality philips head screwdriver. You don't want to use the wrong size driver as the screws are usually rather small and if you strip them, it's a mess.
Prices range from Cheap, to a bit more expensive. Don't let your guitar go unused because of this. You play so beautifully that it would be a shame to let it go to waste.
