I'm in a world of pain here I opened the van door and it slipped out and fell about 4 feet onto tarmac. It landed on where the soundboard joins the bottom side about 3 inches behind the bridge, which took a little chunk off the purling but doesn't look too bad considering. However what I'm worried about is that the volume isn't what it was before and the tone on the upper strings sounds quite flat. Also there's quite a bit of sympathetic vibration on other strings when playing lead, so I'll be playing something on the top strings and the bottom ones will start humming or vice versa. Gutted So have been playing a lot of electric these last few weeks.
I was thinking that some of the bracing might have come loose or moved, there's no rattling or anything that feels audibly loose if i shake it. Has anyone got any idea if that's likely to be what's wrong with it? And does anyone know someone that knows this type of guitars I could take it to to get fixed and how much it might roughly cost? Could you fix bracing without taking the whole top off, what with the tiny sound hole for access.
Any advice much appreciated.
