Hi all, My son was practising his 1/2 size bass this morning, when suddenly I heard a loud bang. Attached is the photo of what happened... The end pin is now at a slight angle, and as well as the wood around the end pin being stoved in there's a large crack where the back of the bass should be joined at the bottom. A few questions for you: 1. The bass has probably had several owners, and is almost certainly not that great quality, so what should I do? It was great value when we bought it 3 years ago (<£200), and it was a functioning bass that he could have at home to practise on. 2. There are a couple of holes in the wood near the pin which makes me think that it's been altered before. Would those have been for a different end pin configuration? 3. Is it likely to have been a setup issue, or could a fairly small teenager easily do this much damage to a bass - is there something that he shouldn't be doing e.g. holding it at too much of an angle? Obviously if we get it fixed or replace it I don't want similar to happen... Thanks for your advice. Dave.
