So have you ever tripped with your bass or dropped it? I'm just asking because last weekend I had this close call moment when it was icy outside and outside our rehearsal place I tripped on the ice on the stairs. I had my Sandberg in Warwick Rockbag (I really should get a case) I fcking freaked out and I had to rush inside to check the bass. Whew.. The fall only detuned the bass and the neck was a bit off center (had to loose the neck screws a little and correct it. No serious damage to the bass, my jeans ripped a little and my knees started bleeding(but that does't matter) Let's just say I hate ice.
