    I think that's the new Fender Travel J.
    You can fold it up and put it in your pocket.

    Oh my god...I'm sorry dude. I'd be furious! What did they do...run the thing over?
  6. Haha I'm not sure. It's all good though, GC said they would take it back and give me a refund.

    That's just sad, sorry man.
  8. The body can't even be salvaged. It's cracked at the neck joint pretty bad.

    Wow props to GC. Also that neck looks extremely dryed out.
  11. There are no words, only :atoz:.
  12. That's got to be criminal. You could throw one naked out of a 2nd floor window and it might have less damage.

    Isn't that Jaco signature model in wrong color? :ninja:

    I was suspecting this going into the thread, but that still didn't prepare me. :crying: I'm sorry; I hope you can get UPS to at least pay for repairs.

    What did they do, just slap a shipping label on the bass and throw it out for the UPS truck?

    What did the hardshell case look like?

    Oh man, I lol'd so hard. One of the guys I work with was just looking at me really quizzically.
  17. Keep us all posted as to resolution- or lack thereof. BTW, this- being music-related- might belong in misc, although I'd probably post here for better coverage and witty replies. This in not a witty reply, mind you. Maybe later.

    It must have been run over; I can't imagine any other way to do that much damage.

    They certainly run the tightest ship in the mayhem business.

    Is that the Paul Simonon signature model? If so, everything is right as rain.

    American Special's do not come with a case. Just a gig bag
