    Just decided to start this these are personal encounters.

    First is realy last week. Dropped in a Pawn shop. Back in the corner behind the counter a Corondo Fender Bass.
    Looked like it had been in a war. Fret board wear, fret wear, chips gouges, pealing all over, crusty strings pealing and crusty bright metal parts. Real rough like a 5 year old played with it sometimes. Price 1600.00 offered him 300.00. He showed me a spotless one on the internet that was 1600.00 so figured his was

    Monday stopped in my friends used gutiar shop. Noticed in the bass section a acustic bass gutiar. Looked like a fender neck. picked it up. The guy that brought it in had bought the neck frome someone. He the ripped the frets out, cut a 1/4 inch or so back on the tuning key side head to make it look different. Drilled 4 holes and counter sunk them through the neck to screw it to a no name acustic body. What!. Turned it over to check the neck a jazz bass 50th anniversary

    The guy usually just hacks something togeather and tries to sell the stuff on consinment at my friends shop. It sounds dicent but I would have bought it just for the neck if he hadnt hacked it.
