I just received a hollow body Epiphone Rivoli bass that I bought over the phone from a small store and it arrived in two pieces! The neck separated from the body (set-neck) during shipping, and it is hard to say if the package was mishandled, or just the mere vibration from riding in a truck was the catalyst to make the breakage happen (I know these basses are prone to that, but this one is a '99, so it is not that old - I thought only old hollowbodies will suffer from that...). Anyhow, anybody care to share their experiences with broken basses on arrival and/or broken or separated necks? I'm bummed to say the least... Now the fun starts as the shipper has washed his hands and is simply saying: "you deal with the carrier...! Sorry, pal!" Another one bites the dust!
