I just got a brand new Fender Geddy Lee Jazz. I traded four basses in order to get it if that tells you anything about how much I wanted this particular bass. I finally got it home after the long trade in process at the store and I was so excited to play it that I just threw a strap on it and started to jam. The strings were kind of dead so I sat down to put some brand new strings on it and when I stood up WHAMMO!!! The strap came loose at the bottom and the bass swung into my desk. A big chunk of paint is now missing from under the lower horn. Ironically I had a set of strap locks sitting on my desk about 6 inches from where my bass hit it. Sometimes the Bass Gods can be very cruel. The moral of the story, Take time to put the strap locks on your bass when you get it home, no matter how badly you want to start playing it right away. I'll post some pics of it when I get home for all of you to enjoy.
