I dropped my Rick hard yesterday. I was messing around I was playing it like a stand up and when I let it drop back down to normal position the strap came off band *baam* I chipped the laquer and a bit of the paint near the binding. Thats about. Landed on the cord and broke that. Need to get another one unless I can repair it. Makes me mad when stuff like this happens. At least basses are usually built like a tank.
