I had this happen to me when I was a teen!  I was a counselor at summer camp, and one evening at campfire, after the singing was done, while the entire camp was quietly listening to the camp director speak, my trusty Takamine F-349 was hanging ever so coolly over my back.  Cowboy hat, cowboy jeans, cowboy guitar silhouetted against the dusky twilight sky.  Did I mention how cool I looked?  Until the bottom peg slipped out and the guitar plummeted headstock first like an arrow toward the dirt ground and landed with a loud BONG! and several more lesser bongs as it tumbled to a rest.  So much for cool.  I never tried that again.  Amazingly, other than a scuff on the top of the headstock, the Tak was fine.  That thing had a baseball bat for a neck and was build to last.

Glad that no serious damage occurred.  I just love how you described the whole incident.  And I can picture you with the garb you described.  I'm still chuckling as I type this.


"Badges?  We don't need no stinkin' badges."

Became a Shooting Star when I got my 1st guitar.
Back in '66, I was 13 and that was my fix.
Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.
