I was lazy last night coming back from the gig and left my bass out on the floor. Tripped over it last night but, thought nothing of it. When I pulled it out today...well...I guess the pics will tell the story. I took the strings and neck off, cleaned it up, screwed the neck back on and it seems solid except the bottom two neckplate screws are stripped. Not sure what'll happen if I put strings on it. Wrote to Gator but, I doubt they care. They don't make any real representations regarding protection in their ads or warranty. Sux cuz it's my only fiver and I use it constantly.
