    I have a feeling your question needs some editing. :D

    But personally, i haven't trashed anything. Right now i'm converting a fretted guitar, to a fretless. So far so good!

    I almost gave away my '94 MIJ Jazz with Seymours and a Badass. Might still do so if I find the right person someday. And yes, I can hear it now already ... "Hey, I'm the right person!" ;)
  4. Then you'll have an excuse to buy something new. :)

    Gave away my old Samick five-string to a kid who wanted to learn to play.

    Trashed my first bass trying to turn it into a fretless and refinish it...its parts are around here somewhere.

    ha, I'm a 15 year old looking for a new 4 string...

    just kidding, I have my heart set on a hotrod SX, and I wouldn't let anybody give me a bass just like that, I'd somehow manage to slip them some money for it no matter what!

  7. I have this 90 lb Genz Benz 115 combo that plays the sound of the fan for me. Plug in an extension cab, and it's noisier than the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.

    I'm going to wheel that incredible POS out to the dumpster, as soon as I'm done throwing darts at it!

    I trashed my GT preamp after it got droped inside my rack about 10 feet. Funny thing, it was the only thing that got busted.
