So, my 10 year old cousin is over, and I just got this brand new bass. It stands there, and he wants me to play it. Sure, if he will just stfu. So I play, and suddenly he grabs it bashes the strings and screams, and throws it on the floor. NOW, anyone with musical instruments DOES KNOW how bad your instruments might fuck up unless you handle with care! So from there it didn't work (at least it sounded HORRIBLE), but his parents considered it an "accident", what the hell? I haven't got a new one yet! My cousin will some day pay me pretty much all the money back, with interest for every week without it!
