Did you ever get a "flesh wound" while working on your instrument? - Pic Included

    Well, I have had performing injuries, but this is my first "string change" flesh wound. I was taking the old strings off my Martin acoustic guitar and the high E string went through my finger, and yes, there is an entry and exit point. It was the curled end off the tuner, so after it poked through it was like a fish hook and did not want to come out. Just yanked it out, probably a bad idea, o well.

    Of course, pic included, after I mostly stopped the bleeding:thumbsup:

    Impressive! I’ve had enough entry wounds but never a separate exit wound! I did learn why people think it’s a good idea to add that grounded power cable to old tube amps while A\Bing one that had it and one that didn’t... nothing that looked good on camera though...

    Those happened to me a few times. I always nip strings as close as I can on guitars and push them up with a metal coin.
