Well after MANY successful transactions in shipping AND receiving basses....My luck finally ran out and I had one damaged. Unfortuantely, this was a bass I shipped to a member here at Talkbass. I had insurance on it and hopefully...can get it all settled quickly. But this has really soured me on doing any more internet deals. I was just wondering about any experiences some of you might have had, with sending, or receiving damaged goods. By the way...this was shipped via the US Postal Service... which up until now...ahd always done an excellent job.
