Recently I sold a Squier Bass VI. Had to meet the buyer halfway from our homes. It was getting dark and rainy. I took the bass out of my car's trunk and handed it to him and in no time the guy is noodling way up on the neck. He pulls a heavy bluesy, One-and-a-half-steppy bend on the G string, 18th fret and bleng, the string slips out of its saddle. He gives me a quizical look, gets back to Stevie-Ray-Vayghning is way into the bass and bleng, bleng. The string slips out again. Twice in a minute. I never had any problem with this instrument. I don't play that high on the neck so I never faced these issues. Hell, I'm not even bending the strings. I slide, I hammer, I pull, but I don't bend. Me: "I don't know man, I'm a bass player" Him "Me too..." I made a discount on the bass because it was getting dark, rainy AND Awkward. I wondered afterwards if he hadn't planned it all along.
