Fun little gig..
« on: February 01, 2019, 04:01:55 PM »
Karnidale, the great Western Australian circus festival!

One little (v) old Bedford truck with a few extra bits welded on...



Some laptops and associated bits and pieces...



A couple of kids who like to play dress-ups, and voila! (Plus a bunch of acrobats, but got no pics of them to hand..)



But OMG, airline baggage handlers...how do they do it?...







*sigh

Holy crap. You can see the point of impact where the lock got bashed in.  Amazing that it just caved in like that.

On a more positive note, that gig looks fun!

Yeah, it was an extremely fun gig!

As to the damage, *cough* Jetstar *cough*, i'm trying to get a new case from them,  this ones pretty much had it, both locks are bashed in, the plastic split...not worrying about the guitar, battle scars etc. Plus i imagine it would be a complete respray..and (mercifully) it actually is ok playing wise.

Can't imagine the impact to create this sort of damage though, like a compression of that top bit enough to crack the paint off from inside a padded SKB case.. who knows.

Anyway, the guitar still plays so onward and shredward..

B.S.

dude, sorry to hear about this. I would be so bummed if it happened to one of mine.  If you can get them to buy you a new case, maybe go for the Hiscox Pro II.  I have one of these and it is super strong.  Looks like they cost around $300 new.

Well, the good news is that they've agreed to replace the case!

And here's one last pic.

Yes, it's fun being a faux rock-star...  8)
