1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Why thanks UPS, I appreciate that......

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

    Haha I'm not sure. It's all good though, GC said they would take it back and give me a refund.

    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.

    That's got to be criminal. You could throw one naked out of a 2nd floor window and it might have less damage.

    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?

    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.

    DAMN.

    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
