    You'll live, maybe. The first scratch is the worst.

    You should see my gigging bass. Thirteen years of dings and scratches all over.

    What scratch?

    But i agree that the first scratch is always the worst, thats why...

    I buy used basses :) My main bass (Godin) came with a ding in the back and a tiny crack at the neck joint, therefore i dont care when i damage it.. Its gotten quite a bit worse in the 8 months ive owned it so far , heh. Im curious as to where some of it comes from, tehre is one area on it that has abrasion marks, scratches etc for about 2-3 inches..and i dont remember doing it?

    sweet.

    Thats only the stuff that I could get to show up in the crappy photos. There are so many cracks, chips and scratches. Thats why I have now put this bass to rest until I decide on how I want to refinish it.

    The first day of getting my first bass I'm resting my left hand on the body where I always wear a ring. I move my hand and hear SCCCCCC and realize that I put a nice big scratch in it.

    Sucks... dont it?

    Man, I remember the first time I dinged my bass. I freaked out. I now have several scratches and dings in that one, and a few dings in my fretless from playing with drum sticks and them flying out of my hands :embarassed: .

    My old BC Rich Innovator 4. Yea, its not a (insert boutique bass name here) so I could care less about resale value. Plus, it has sentimental value being my first and all. :bassist:
     
  17. Man, I could care less if my bass got a scratch. i love my bass, but a scratch won't effect the playablity or the tone.

    I threw my remote at my bass a year ago, chipped the paint off, piece of wood showing through :smug:

    I prefer to think of scratches as war scars.

    My first scratch what I was tighting the washer under the volume knob. The wrench scratched the pick-guard. Silly 12 year olds should never play around with that sort of stuff.
     
  20. Holy crap! I'll kill myself if I let my bass get that bad! :(
