After finally retiring my CCB, and Picking up a used Norton prepped Shen 100, my bass exploded tonite at practice. I wasn't even playing; we were in-between songs, talking arrangments when BLAMMO! the TP cord let go, and sent the bridge flying. The TP cord on this bass is nylon, and it looks like it simply came untied: I never paid the cord much mind, except for noting it was nylon. the TP is a walnut Pecanic. So, can I just re-tie it? what are my cheaper cord options to keep the low tension I had? Now, the bigger issue is, upon landing, the bridge cracked along the treble side wing. Is this bridge now garbage? Can it be glued? Am I screwed? Also, is having the bass sitting with no string tension gonna mess anything up? ANY help will be appreciated. Time is a factor, as I have to have this bass up and running for a string of important shows the weekend of July 7th. I play western swing, and switch between slap and pizz about equally. I was running weed wackers on the D&G, and Obiligatos on the E&A. the wackers lowered the tension quite a bit, so what gives (or gave)?
