OK. It's no secret that Fender and I have a love/hate relationship.... mostly on the hate side. Either I have the worst luck on the planet regarding them, or their quality control is truly the worst of any bass company. I currently own 2 Fenders that I love, out of around 15 that I've owned... and, well, I'll get to the point... Even their gigbags have problems. After aout 4 years of abuse, my Warwick Rockbag (favorite gigbag) is starting to fall apart. I decided I'll use my brand new Fender gigbag, which ironically was taking care of a Warwick. Never did anything with that bag except put a Fortress into it, and place it in a closet. Well, I'm going to have to cut the bag apart because the zipper pull on it literally just completely disappeared and I now can't figure out any other way to get the bag open. All I ever did with the bag was open it, put a bass in, close it, and put it in the closet... and now it's useless. And I have to buy a gigbag. When I shouldn't have to buy a gigbag. Glad this didn't happen at a gig or on a tour. Is a gigbag under warranty if was clearly never used? Should I write Fender? Why does just about everything I buy from Fender break? Even my Fender keepers broke within the first few months and I had to buy and fix things on them. This doesn't happen with ANY other bass company I purchase from, and I've purchased from a lot. Done bashing.
