All's well that ends well...
"Sad Little Yamaha"
this little bass is going to tug on your heartstrings.
you'd have to have a soul of ice not to let this one choke you
up even a little. call it mutilated, handicapped, or just sculpturally-impaired,
this brave little bass just wants to be loved. our e-pal nathan
enders alerted us to this charity case on ebay last week:
"This is one weird guitar. At one point it belonged to
one of NJ's ska/punk bands 'The Bouncing Souls' IT has since
been altered... a lot. The paint has a light misting of silver
sparkles on it, one of the 'horns' has been removed and half
of the neck is fretless! It still plays and sounds ok, and I'll
throw in some used strings to make a full set."
"throw in some used strings"? how
condescending. but don't cry - this story has a happy ending
- in an outpouring of good will, seven compassionate people stepped
up and bid on this bass - the winning bid: $71.00. here's one
bass that'll be sleeping in front of a toasty warm fireplace
this christmas. *sniff*
