    Hi Michael,
    I purchased a Peavey G-Bass, (not sure of age). Last night while playing at Church I noticed the Neck was loose. It was not loose at home or at another Concert. How does this happen? Is this common? The G-Bass has only one pick up and 4 string. Thanks for your help.

    I am assuming that the neck is bolt on. The screws could loosen or worse yet would be that the holes in the body where the screws sit are stripped. I always prefer to replace the wood screws with a brass insert and bolt.
