    then.. I boxed it up and got ready to ship it to australia.. in TWO BOXES! *dun dun dun*


    ... I'm talking about a bass of course.
    Today I prepared to ship my lovely fender off to Mark Latimour!

    Here are pics of the bass and it's journey into these two smelly (and expensive) UPS boxes.

    "I can't wait to go to Aussie land and have meself a Kangaroo burger!" Says the bass body

    The crime scene.

    If you can't see it, it can't see you.

    The neck packed with about 900 layers of bubble wrap.. soon to be surrounded by newspaper.

    [​IMG] f'ing bulletproof and such. Honestly, Ron Jeremy with a box cutter couldn't penetrate these boxes.

    ... okay.. dirty joke :p


    ... oh and just for laughs.. Here's the insides of my Alembic Series 1

    Ah, the infamous crotch cam.


    Be glad your Alembic is a Series I. The Series IIs have their own nuclear reactor in their control cavities to power them.

    YAY! Mark finally got himself a nice Jazz. He was trying to buy mine, but I wouldn't accept his lowball offer. :D

    Yeah, well Ron Jeremy isn't known for penetrating things with a box cutter anyway.

  10. It seems you've done it well!
    I'm sure the bass will arrive in Australia without damages!
