    I was curious how you did/will fix the headstock of Jason Newsted's injured bass.
    When I saw it (May 18th) I wanted to cry.
    Just hopeful that it is fixable. At least the sound was fine.

    I am not aware of the bass you are referring to.
    I have Jason's main 5 string in the shop now for a refret but there is no problem with the headstock.

    Can you be a little more specific?

    During the Echobrain concert in Boston (about May 16th), he put the headstock through one of his amps...three times...I saw him in Old Bridge NJ, looked like one of the basses had some damage to the top of the headstock, and his tech told me he was not looking forward to having to call and tell you!
    Of course, it was dark in the venue, but I was front row, and it sure looked like there was some wood damage.
