Sadly, his shop burned down to the ground last night.
Not my most favorite bass in the world by any means, but this kind of thing should never happen to anyone.

That sucks!
I have never been impressed with Wishbass but that is truly sad news.
I hope no one was hurt and that he can get back on his feet once everything gets sorted out.

Terrible news. My initial thought was, "arson?" I'm sorry to say, but he had no insurance???

was just going to post this. Horrible news. Even if you didn't care for his work, it was his bread and butter. Very sad. If there is a kickstarter for him, ill donate.

Heres the local news with interview:
