The questions and answers at the bottom are PRICELESS!!!

I found a thread about this on TalkBass...it kinda makes me smile.

Hey, a couple of years ago, I probably couldn't have told the difference, either...

Awww! Now, now, Guys...be kind! She sounds like just some little 'ol country gal who happened to find a bass to sell, but obviously didn't know exactly what she had. Yeah, it's amusing, but let's face it. There are a lot of folks on the planet who don't have any idea what a bass guitar is.

Hell, half of my more distant family still ask me to this day "so, you still playing guitar?" Laughing

You're right Eric...we should be nice, but I think it's funny because everybody's found themselves in her place. For example, we had a performance the other week that was a group called the Kinsey Sicks. They're a quartet of men who dress in drag and have a mock musical TV talk show on stage called "Wake The F**k Up, America". It's kinda a political satire and awkward improv comedy thing with a bit of a showtunes-y twist...and with a very gay perpective. To the greater part of the audience, it was hilarious, but I didn't get a lick of it. There's a whole culture around me that I'm not aware of or in tune with. I'm completely oblivious to their history, identity, and colloquialisms in the same way that five years ago, I couldn't have told the difference between a bass and a guitar for the life of me. A bass would have been a "heavy guitar with 4 strings that's kinda big".

I guess I have a bit of a wicked sense of humor and I am by no means exempt from it. I think we're all a little like that, especially in this forum Wink

everyone has ignorance in some area. i know nothing about the sport of lacrosse ... and working in the sports industry, i've looked dumb.

i was just stating that this individual was charming about it.

some people just get bent if they are called on it.

ok, ok ... the deliverance reference may have been a bit mean.

not that ignorance "HELPS", but if you have something rare, and you dont' know it is rare, the price you set on ebay can be so low, it is a hell of a bargain if you are the buyer...

and if that neck fit into the pocket of my Scott JazzClone, I would love to have the maple with black blocks neck on it instead of the rosewood and pearloid blocks....

It all boils down to doing some research before selling something online that you don't know much about.

Well, that's why I figured I'd share this hahaha

I think that being awkward is an interesting feeling...how people think about it and deal with it says a lot about them.

And yeah you're right, amimbari! I'm pretty sure he's from around here...at least he visits Mike Lull's shop often.

The funny/sad thing about this is that I would be willing to bet that there are a whole lot of musicians out there that have found her ad, and are having the exact same discussion as we are about it! Laughing

Oh yeah, dude. I first found this on TalkBass...who knows how many times it's already been passed around.



Gotta sterilize these threads before reading them...don't you know the risk of getting disease-ah? Wink
