    Should've drilled the headstock, too! Although I doubt it will have neck dive, even with all that wood taken out.

    Now you know why they tell you to never take your T-40 with you when you’re out duck hunting.

    If you played that, you'd have to return your Man Card.

    Nothing's unpossible.

    That's right, including the misspelling of the word impossible

    That's got, "I'm a weak bassplayer" written all over. For god sakes, trade the thing in and get something you can manage.

    Whoever did this should be drawn and quartered....stitched back together and drawn and quartered again.

    The cheesed Swiss nature of the body aside I do like the amount of saddle travel on that bridge. I wish more manufacturers would make similar bridges with long travel in mind as a standard piece of hardware.

    Gotta love how the seller simply makes no reference to the fact that someone took a drill and jigsaw to this poor instrument.

    Well, I guess they did... if you count the use of the adjective "Custom" as a disclosure of amateur tom-foolery being executed on a perfectly fine instrument.

    Thank God they didn't ruin it by pulling the frets.
