I had a problem. Well, several. First, I did a Superman over the bars of my mountain bike and fractured and dislocated my right shoulder. The sling they gave me had a skinny shoulder strap that twisted and dug in. A light bulb went off in my head, and I was able to attach a nice padded Fender strap to the sling in a fully reversible way. My hemiarthroplasty is scheduled next week, but I'll likely be in the sling for the rest of the year
Yikes! Get well soon man! I’ve had two separate “incidents” that left me unable to play bass or guitar for months and months, one of them involving a mountain bike! The second instance, I took up pedal steel guitar. I eventually got back to playing bass.
So.....how’s the bike??
Aging demographic? I could have used one of those in junior high when I broke my wrist. I thought maybe there was a Fender hearing aid now available, or a walker with a built-in Rumble amp.
I have the Fender Mustang PJ LE. I have no idea what demographic they intended it for but it suits me just fine. I'm 68 and over two years into recovery from a minor stroke that messed with my right side.
My ears are fine but I could actually use a Rumble Walker, especially if it has a couple of wheels.
Good shape, only needs new grips. May be for sale.
I’m 60 and remain active, and work a physical job. (I work on cars.) Although I still have no problems playing my 34” scale Basses, I’m well aware that can change in a heartbeat.
(I think my StingRays may have put on a little weight. )
That having been said, when my friend offered me a good deal on his MIJ Fender Mustang, I snatched it up. The time will come when eventually, it’ll be my main Bass. It’s only a matter of time.
I wish you a speedy recovery, my friend.
That sucks.. Collarbone and shoulder injuries are very common with bike/motorbike accidents. I'm glad nothing more serious happened. Wishing you a speedy recovery my friend!
My wife's VW Beetle has a Fender sound system, cant seem to see any tubes anywhere though.
Get well soon. Awesome contraption there.
I’m 62 and my doc always tells me to be careful since I don’t have the same reflexes as I did years ago.
I like it!
i think it's just another great "mod!" in your case: an upgrade! slick!
Glad you're not more badly hurt. A friend went over his bars mountain biking last spring and broke his neck. The recovery is long.
Heal well and fast!
Maybe Fender could make a walker
that sucks. i got a non-displaced impact fracture in my humerus this year and am still in physical therapy.
Sorry about your endo! But cool sling! Remember, bodies heal, bikes don't. Get well.
I liked your post for your ingenuity not your pain. I hope you heal quickly and are back on the bike soon!
