    All of my basses are in perfect condition, no nicks or scratches anywhere.

    That's because I had a special chamber constructed that I place them in very carefully to play them.

    It has holes in the back with gloves that I insert my arms and hands into, and then I can manipulate the strings with the gloves. Everything inside the box is padded velvet, so that if the bass falls out of the neoprene mounts that hold it in playing positon, it will not suffer any damage. And of course, it has a plexiglass front, so that the audience can see the instrument when I am playing it.

    When I am not playing my basses, they are stored in their flight cases, inside a climate controlled vault underneath the basement of my house, that only I have the combination to.

    Do you have the same 36 inch armor vault that I do? It's a case about 72 inches high, on the inside, so I actually have to duck when I walk in, but it's nuclear-proof!:D

    The Modulus has a bunch (damn black painted back) though nothing really big, but none on the top. Doesn't bother me.

    The Roscoe has one super tiny one on the back that the previous owner made. The Tobias has none except for a finish marr that was factory.

    Again, though, don't care. They still sound great!
