    Sincere condolences to you. I hope it can be repaired or...replaced.

    And welcome to Gretsch-Talk.

    It makes me sick seeing that and it's not even mine. So sorry for your luck. I hope it can be resolved with the shipper.
    Forgot to say "Welcome to the forum."

    On the bright side, lots of gluing area and a pretty clean break. Should be a pretty easy fix.

    Thanks everyone! Hopefully I can get it sorted out soon.

    I saw that, it seems like quite the coincidence.

    That is beautiful. I don't have any (semi) solid bodies, but that makes me sorely tempted. I've never tried a tension bar bigsby though.

    It was used, but in very good condition besides the break. There isn't any obvious damage to the case whatsoever! Made the blow when I opened it all the worse.
    I think the case is specific to the Kenny.

    Yep! Although I think the shipping was insured, and so far the seller hasn't asked me to send it back, so we'll see what happens.

    I'm hardly an expert, but I had the same thought when I saw it.

    I do! There's the aforementioned falcon:

    And I have a double cut electromatic:

    And this year I got a Hofner for super cheap (£400 new with a hard case!)

    And finally my electromatic bass:

    That’s a nice collection. And that beautiful Falcon would be the crown jewel for many!
