Title: Fun little gig..
Post by: Big Swifty 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?...

Sad crunch! What happened?

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..

Amazing.

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)
