    Here's another pic from a different angle! If it was me I would just salvage the pickup and neck and burn the rest!

    Me too, EB's ash is an excellent quality firewood, especially in the cold winer nights!

    So that's what happens when your playing bass to loud and the neighbor guy's really drunk with a wood chipper...

    All the obvious being said, I would really like to hear what that pickup sounds like straight to the amp with no pre like that.

    Oh, and the bass is just a thing. Why do you care? They make 400 every day....probably a third of them in that color. So this one wasn't even a special thing.
  12. I bet it's got that raw, wood tone in spades.

    I guess this settles the old debate of if tone wood matters.

    Curious to hear the story of how it got into that state if anyone knows.

    Me too. And why would you continue to play it that way? It looks terrible.
