Here's a question I where I would appreciate input from my fellow talkbassers. Saturday I am in a music store with my son picking up a part for his drum kit. While he is attending to that, I am looking at guitars and I pick off the higher rack, a re-issue Strat. I carefully go to hang it back up and let go of it, and alas, it swings out of the U-shaped bracket holding it and falls to the floor. It is a 57' US reissue strat with nitro finish which to me is very soft. The fall causes two nickel sized divots at the guitar on both sides. Down to the wood. Obviously I was not fooling around and had been careful to hang it back up. I feel terrible and leave my name, address and phone number. The owner is not there until Monday. The manager on duty is somewhat cool about it and assures me that something can be worked out to make everyone happy. I do not commit either way as to what I am going to do. I do ask 1. What's the invoice and 2. Do they have insurance and I get vague responses. Well, I go home, and still feeling terrible begin to figure out how to pay for it. The manager did tell me his cost is $900. As the weekend progresses and I talk to multiple friends, they tell me I should not even think about buying it, accidents happen, tough luck for them. There is a sign at the store that says "you break, you buy" which is not really legally enforceable. So what would you guys do?
