    I bought a TRBX304 on the 'bay. It took me forever to unwrap it. I guess it saved them a trip to Goodwill. IMG_20190110_135424523.

    Better than some of the packing jobs I’ve gotten in the past.

    With the clothing still in the box it added about 10lbs to the overall weight.

    Hopefully the clothes were washed and odor free.

    Several amps I have bought were essentially packed in garbage. Year's later, some of them still have a bit of a stench. I assume the seller just scooped up whatever refuse was laying around the house.

    So, you bought a bass and got a free stage wardrobe to go with it. :laugh:

  15. This was the packing material I got with a large format camera a while back. All was clean and in pretty good shape.

  17. Put your new bass out in the sun for a few days to kill the bedbugs.

    Were there any underpants in there? Hopefully you didn't get any free skidmarks.

    Well, I'm sure it was far more padded than a strip of bubble wrap
