Fire at the Wishbass factory.

I've met this guy -- don't care for his basses, but he's a really nice fellow. Good luck to him getting back on his feet.

It's fun to bash his basses, but that's a shame. Hope there was some kind of insurance?

I always assumed his "factory" was in a trailer park somewhere.

Luthiers of all kinds have to support one another ... I threw his gofundme campaign a few bucks. He definitely fills a niche and he has quite a following. I've e-chatted with him and he's a heck of a nice guy.

What a shame, I lost a bunch of stuff in an apartment fire years ago and it changed me. No candles allowed in our house unless they are on a birthday cake.

He had no insurance. Here's his gofundme page.

I'd send him some money if he promised he'd use it for bass building lessons.
