    Now, recently I purchased a NEW bass from a fellow tber, yesterday was my second day owning it and I already dinged it when putting it on by hitting it with my tooth. Then I realized this has happened to almost every bass I owned either the first or second day of ownership. My p bass and warwick both received headstock dings while just playing in my bedroom. Ironically the only bass to not receive a ding by my hands was used and already had a ding.

    Anyone else suffer such a fate?

    Basses that actually get played get dings. Don't sweat it.

    Don't even want to know how you ding a bass with your teeth. Might want to let that strap out a little! ;)

    I hate pristeen basses... almost as much as purposefully reliced ones... but that's another issue...

    I need my instruments to have dings... it makes them mine
  7. don't sweat the dings... charactor!
    I also want to know how you dinged your bass with your teeth! I would recommend a mouth piece :)

    Haha, well the length I had my strap set to on my P bass made the SG reissue I got MUCH higher because of button locations, so when I was putting my bass on I somehow jerked and made a ding on the back part of the body :p

    Sometimes I get lost looking at it, it mesmerizes me. But, I honestly don't care about dings, just dinging it within such a short period. :ninja:

    I realize you bought a sweet bass from a TBer, but for future reference, 'sweet' refers to the tone and playability of the bass, not it's taste.

    It was not as tasty as one would wish.

    I've dinged brand new basses before, but never with a tooth. It sucks, but you'll get over it as soon as you put the second ding in.
