My shamisen neck is stuck in the body and I can’t get it out or push it any further in. What do I do?
When something similar to this happened to me, it was suggested that to remove the sao to try again you can tap the shamisen against something (preferable padded with something soft to prevent scratching) so as to push the sao out through the spike at the bottom. Then putting it back in, line it up with the dou held in place and click it in with a swift downward push.
Thank you for the advice. It worked very well.
