Good that you have some mysterious, un-named person to run over and pick it up!

Yes, who was that masked camerawoman, I wanted to thank her!

I’m impressed that your bass hit the deck on the 1!

With double bass, timing is everything.

Get a sensible stand, Jack!

It was quite a strong gust, Roger. In truth, I had no idea a bass could blow off a bass bar like that.

From now on I'll just lay it down on its back in its gigbag, on the ground next to me. 

Incidentally, the entire fingerboard popped clean off, two seams opened, and the soundpost moved. I took it to the nearest DB specialist today ... £180 to put it back together.

On a positive note, that's a lovely looking single-coil P-bass!

That's my utterly gorgeous and uber-lightweight Mike Lull 54P.

I bought it from a guy in Denmark because ... erm ... well, I liked the colour actually. To my complete amazement, it became my instant go-to bass for anything needing a chunky 4-string sound. It has fought off some very serious opposition to achieve that.

Considering what could have happened, I'd say that's a bit of a result!

Pah, all this when for once I wasn't actually wearing a mask at all! (What with us being outdoors etc.) 9_9

It has also fought off several attempts by other bassists to buy it. No, it's NOT for sale. 😉

So did you get to try it with the ToneDexter pedal before the accident?

Good to hear the damage to your bass wasn't more serious.

Judging by the photo, "whatever is holding this one up" is four more petite women wearing sensible dresses, hidden from view by the body of the bass.
