    What is it about Rippers that gave people the urge to reach for the jigsaw? I've seen several crop up on eBay in various stages of mutilation.

    Hardly ever seen anyone try to mess with a P or J, and you just know that if you tried to get near a Thunderbird with a jigsaw, it'd probably just beat you to death in self preservation...

    What is it about that era and cutting big slabs off basses like that? Fill me in.

    The only thing I can think of that makes any kind of sense is maybe the bass took a hit (dropped?) and the body cracked or something.

    At least I hope it was something like that because the only other explanation is pure insanity.

    They hear "Ripper!" and think they have to rip it apart I guess. It's not as bad as the sickly green one that was posted before.
     
  12. How many has this guy tortured?
     
  13. This is truely a crime punishable by death. Who could ever do such a thing to a poor, defenseless bass?

    I just sent the seller a message suggesting that he cut up the rest of it and sell it as scrap wood. Wonder if he will get pissed.....
