Tell her, (even if it's not true): My guitar is my life...and you cut the strings. I'll remember that when you're dying in the hospital hooked up to machines...I'll cut the strings for you. EPIC WIN

Whats wrong with it being on the floor??? Nothing, and yea, this isnt a FML at all..... $10 strings??? If your that hard up for cash then I might start a donation here at the FML.com and give it to someone who really needs it....

Wah, fucking wah. How about you save up and buy a titanium set so this doesn't happen again. But seriously though, $10 and about 7 minutes of your time has been wasted. You whiny bitch. Oh and to #4, you're having as much of a strop as the OP. Grow up.

You dont get it do you? The point isnt the strings, its that the les paul was found on the floor. It was probably scratched or chipped on its way there, or scratched by the grandma's scissors or whatnot.

Oh no! Not the Floor! Dun dun dunnn. It's a floor. If it did any damage then the guitar was a piece of shit in the first place.

It never said Gibson, it very well might be an epiphone "special" (shudders). Also, this is why you don't leave guitars out. Or get ones that can't stand a few scratches. Tele's don't look good until there's no paint left on the front.

Generally that would be the assumption when your grandma goes around breaking guitar strings because she believes her grandson plays "Devil music." Just saying. Then again it IS just an assumption, but an assumption that can be well backed, I guess. ;D

re·li·gious (rĭ-lĭj'əs) adj. 1. Having or showing belief in and reverence for God or a deity. 2. Of, concerned with, or teaching religion: a religious text. 3. Extremely scrupulous or conscientious: religious devotion to duty. So what you are saying is, you believe in God, you just don't care for him much?

Seriously? Guitar strings aren't very expensive. Replace them - it isn't hard. This is in no way an FML - if she had damaged the guitar itself, then it'd be worthy, but strings? Come on!

The fretboard will start to warp if the tension the strings create is missing for an extended period of time. A day or two won't hurt. If anything, the most the OP will have to do is a slight truss rod adjustment, and I doubt he'll even need to for this, since I assume he plays it every day, and his grandma probably cut them that same day.

Feck off troll - it takes time for the fingerboard to warp. Wood shift takes time, and if it took enough time for him to notice his unstrung guitar such that it were permanently and noticeably damaged, he should not be playing a Les Paul in the first place. He found the guitar in his bedroom - it is almost a certainty that he found it within 12 hours, and as such, any damage would be temporary and microscopic, fixed simply by the reapplication of the tension of new strings. On the off-chance that he didn't return for several days, there exists a thing called a truss rod, which exists for the express purpose of correcting neck warp. I suggest you learn more of wood as well as guitars before correcting someone. I do feel sorry for OP having to deal with his grandma, I just don't feel it is an FML

Oh boo hoo. Go spend $5 on another pack of Ernie Ball, D'Addie, GHS, or whatever strings. Or better yet, put on another set of strings, because as a guitarist, you SHOULD have spare packs laying around.

So what? ZOMG she cut your strings! Replacing strings takes like 5 minutes and I've never seen a pack of strings is like 5 dollars. If the guitar itself was damaged (and it's a Gibson not an Epiphone) then FYL. If it wasn't, it's not bad at all, you probably needed to change strings anyway. Atleast you don't have a Floyd rose tremolo like my guitar. Restringing can tale an hour and you have to resting like every 2 weeks. Seriously though, 5 dollars for a new pack of strings=FML? Do you think that guitar is broken forever? If you do, WTF are you doing with a Les Paul anyway

Haha that's what I was thinking, it would be A TON worse if you have a Floyd Rose. Such a pain to restring. But still, FYL, hope you can restring it before the neck warps
