    and the reason it was being carted around in a car not in a case or bag was.................?

    alcohol related????????
  4. Must be...you'd have to be drunk to buy one in the first place...:bag:
  5. Well, I'm sure there are many ummmm people out there who do not have the inclination to research and otherwise stay as informed as the TB'ers! :D
  6. In all seriousness...I actually LIKE playing my wishbass...it sounds very good...and I have it set up pretty well, so it plays quite nicely.

    I'm also thinking of modifying one of my dining room chairs to a contrabass, but I'm not quite ready to take the plunge. For now I'll stick with my wishy.

    Maybe the car's brakes gave out and it was the nearest thing to a manual brake.....or maybe the owner simply loved it too much and changed his mind.
  8. I'm thinking anchor.

    Another attempt to expand the range of human knowledge ends in near-tragedy.

    It woulda been REAL tragedy if it'd been a vintage PB.
  12. It was a Wishnevsky.

    Axe handles don't come with cases.

    Maybe it saw the guy's Squiers and SX's and developed a complex that led to depression and it's eventual suicide.

    The bass probably read all the Wish threads, got depressed and committed suicide. Hence the scripture like suicide note left on the control cavity cover.
