    This is my Black/rosewood Skyline Joe Osborn. Had an unfortunate run in with angry ex girlfriend whilst at a gig, and now it has some injuries. The damage was done with a small hammer :crying: , and 3 out of the 4 hits landed on the pickguard. The 2 on the top did not shatter the plastic, but the one next to the neck pickup did shatter the edge of the pickguard over the pickup route. The last hit was in between the bridge pickup and the bridge, left an impression somewhere between a quarter and a nickel. I will take pics to further illustrate, and can provide them upon request. The good news is that all one would have to do to restore this bass to a point where the damage would not be visible from a few feet is replace the pickguard. That would still leave the ding at the bridge, but because of the color, it doesn't show up too terribly much.

    *edit* forgot to mention that other than these cosmetic issues, the bass is 100%, with a set of Jazz flats on her*

    Anyhow, this is caseless. First one with 500 bucks takes her home, far away from psycho ex's.

    Thanks ya'll, I need the help on this one. :help:

    OK people, keep it on topic. No more talk about "snuffing" or injuring people!

    Can you resend them to me. I accidentally deleted the pics. I'm still very interested.
