I got home from work last night and was standing in the kitchen talking with my wife when my 6 year old daughter came in sobbing. She said that she was in the jam room and accidentally knocked over one of my guitars. I immediately knew it was bad because she was very upset. So I kept my cool and went to check and I was crushed by what I found. My Micheal Kelly acoustic bass had fallen face first on the floor and the headstock was broken completely off. Just from looking I knew immediately that even if it could be repaired it wasn't going to be pretty. It would probably cost as much as the guitar itself. I told my daughter not to worry, that it was only an accident and there was nothing to do about it now. She said that she was upset because she knew it was my favorite. Which is true, it was a Fathers Day present from both of them this year. But I assured her that life would go on. I couldn't help but be a little depressed. When I first got this bass I wasn't sure if I was going to dig playing an acoustic at all. But it slowly grew on me. I would pick it up and play on it just about every day. My wife is insisting on replacing it, but to be honest we don't really have the money and I already have more gear than I need. The acoustic isn't even something I use in my band so I can't justify it that way. I thought of it as a tool that would help me play more while I was sitting around at home. And it had sentimental value that won't be able to be replaced. I just feel like buying another one is a waste of money, but I am still going to miss it. Anyway, enough of my whining. Life will go on, I just needed a place to vent. thanks! EDIT: Pictures of the break added on page 2.
