    It happens with all my freaking cars, and now with all my basses. Yes. Rehearsal today. Bongo strapped around my neck. Triton keyboard against the wall. I turn around. Corner of Triton meets bottom of Bongo. Not even a hard hit. Takes a freaking half inch chip out of the once beautiful paintjob!

    DAMN!

    Same freaking thing happened right after I bought my Sterling. Tapped something, a chip got taken out. 4 or 5 years since, nothing else has happened.

    :crying: :crying: :crying:

    I guess it's totally mine now.
     
  2. :eek:

    How could you do that to the venerable almighty Triton? :scowl:

    Can you give me an address so I can send a "Get Well" card to the Korg? :confused:

    Its k, its break-in damage. I dropped my sterling twice in the first month and dinged/scratched the bottom. Can we get pics of the dmg>?

    The only basses that are in perfect condition are the ones that don't get played!

    Consider 'em "character marks", and move on. You should see the bass over in my avatar close up, it looks like I dragged it behind a truck!!! :ninja:

    Quick story (to give you the mind frame of the builders):

    I was talking with Keith Roscoe a while back, he related an experience to me. He'd built a bass for a local customer, about 4-5 years later, the customer brings the bass back for a checkup. Not a scratch on it, looked like the day it'd been finished.

    Keith went over it for the guy, pronounced it "Healthy!", and sent him on his way.

    Keith was furious.


    Why??? :confused:


    Because he makes 'em to be PLAYED!!! It was obvious that it hadn't been used, there was NO play wear at all. He told me he'd rather see them beat to crap, because at least they getting played.
