    well, my SX was just run over by a 24 ft truck. wierd accident. now my sx has a 5 piece neck that is detachable for travelling ! thank God it was only $99....


    I took it out of my car, leaned it up against the trunk. it fell over and into the street right when a huge furniture van was coming by.

    law of physics in action: two bodies cannot occupy the same space at the same time.:eek:

    Bummer. Check you homeowners or renters insurance policy -- may be covered.

    For $99. I'll just buy another one. my homeowners would probably go up that much every month if i made a claim...

    Well, he did leave his body and his guts behind. Maybe he can get a limb grafted back on?

    surpisingly he was not evicerated...tuff screws ! His neck is, uh, a bit splintered. I think death was instantaeneous.

    I don't think i could have taken the suffering had he lived !

    Did he sign an organ donor card? Somewhere someone may need the pickups, tuners, etc... if they survived.

    Dude, I'm hearing some bad things about your late Essex! Apparently he fathered a bunch of ukeleles out of wedlock in Montana. For shame!
     
  9. Burial or cremation? :(

    It knocked up my Jazz bass. :( Now I have a banjo? :confused:



    Sorry about your bass. Did the guys in the truck realize they hit something? Did they even stop? Did you beat them with a speakon cable?

    Especially once you locked it by twisting.

  16. Was the body ruined?
    If it wasn't just buy a new neck.

  17. Poor guy. Save the guts, and give it to a bass in need, it is the holiday season afterall.

    I'm sorry to hear about the bass. Though the morbid side of me would like to second Microbasses request for pics. I'm sure nothing can replace a loved one but I do hope that one day you'll be able to move on and find another that you can enjoy. :D

    On a serious note, is it as simple as buying another neck, or is it too far gone?
