    Well i gave up on the Ashbory bass idea and figured id just get a case for my Jay Turser Beatle bass for upcoming vacation. (i'll try to make this brief).
    I called a friend who had bought the same bass and asked him where he got it. called the place and they said they just happened to have a case because someobdy bought the bass but didnt take the case. You can have it for $40 (sted $60).
    SO i go there and mention my friend, and they knew him. i said he was probably the guy who bought the bass.
    The guy looks it up and says youre right.
    So he hands me the bass and says anything else. I said guitar strings.
    He says five bucks.
    I said what about the case?
    No charge, it comes with the bass but the salesman forgot to tell your friend that.
    Im like, i didnt come here for him, I want the case.
    He said, your secret is safe with me.
    So i called the friend and told him and will give it to him, but after the trip.
    In the meantime, i'll reconsider the Ashbory.

    It would be cooler if the friend said keep the case, i'm a gig bag guy anyway. If he reads this here, he still might! ;)
