Why can I not post anymore without getting BS. I said something, and its true, Such as the $500 bridge. Well you know what, its true. So why must we continue??? Stupid warping- Um well yea its laminated, and they do that over time. AND it was IN A HURRICAN FOR CHRIST SAKE!!! How can you argue that. The stupid pile is lucky enough to still be together. SO WHY do you have to argue about it! I said it, I said it!! OK!?? Is that not good enough! Does it have to come from someone other than 4 professional bass players, 2 teachers, and 2 luthiers? Why do I need your opinion? ALWAYS should have started with ken. Always from now on, I will go to Ken. Even though he gets angry at people, he KNOWS A LOT MORE THAN ANYONE HERE And with that- Im gone. You will probably read in the paper soon about a deranged kid who burns his bass in front of a luthier .
