Well, it has finally happened. Got home from work on Friday to find that my bass was knocked over by one of the kids. The end of the fingerboard caught the edge of the keyboard on our piano and the fingerboard popped off. To make matters worse, my luthier is on vacation untill the middle of the week. I have tuned down the strings to reduce the tension, but I am afraid to loosen them all the way for fear of dropping the sound post. Am I worrying about the wrong thing here? Will my guy just remove everything anyway once he gets it? The break is pretty clean, so I think I am lucky there. It looks like, for the most part, it just seperated at the glue joint. The bass in question here is a Shen plywood if that alters anyone's response. What should I do for now?
