Not a big problem, and it was easy enough to fix. But it was a puzzle for a moment.
I went to touch up the A string with the fine tuner and it didn't do anything. After the second half-turn did nothing, I looked underneath and saw this:
See how the one adjustment screw somehow managed to get off the metal lever it is supposed to move? Easy enough to fix, I just unscrewed the adjustment most of the way and the lever slid back into place and when I tightened the screw back up it was fine.
So if you go to turn the fine tuner adjustment and the pitch doesn't change, that's worth checking. Very simple and not much of a fix, but since I hadn't heard of it happening before, I figured I'd mention it in case it happens to anyone else.

Yeah, that's the electric. For the acoustic, I'd have probably used a dental mirror and a small flashlight to get a look at the underside of the tuners. I wouldn't have even tried to juggle a camera as well to get a pic, then.
Or it might have happened one of the times my electric took a tumble onto the floor. It pretty much lives out of it's case on the kitchen table, and accidents happen. So far it has turned out to be a tough little thing, though.
