    Were they original strings?

    :haha:

    For some reason, I frequently break the B string too.

    I used to brake D strings on my Ric often. Maybe I played a bit too aggressive. :facepalm:

    One weekend my band had a small gig on Friday night and I didn't feel like taking multiple basses so I thought I would use my new one all night.....it was a Rickenbacker 4003s8 (octaved 8 string). Fucking thing was like playing a cheese grater for 3 hours. I'm a dope. That gave me some pretty serious blisters.

    The next night we had a gig headlining at the local House of Blues which was HUGE for us. About three songs in my blisters started shredding. No amount of super glue before or during helped and I can't play with a pick so I just bled all over three of my Rics that night and the blue one was my main. I kicked ass though. :punk:

    Bought my kid an Ibanez Sra505 for his birthday last Monday. He thinks he's pretty cool.

    Thanks. It's almost 10 years old, and a '51 reissue. It's stock except for the Callahan compensated saddles I installed 5 years ago.

    The neck is fine. The lacquer finish is worn out in those spots. I don't mind it. The "baseball bat" neck is really comfy.

    If you've never played until your fingers bleed, you don't love to play guitar.

    This was fun
