I took my First Act Custom Bass to work with me a couple of years ago. One of my coworkers was bagging on its look, when I saw to guys and a positively adorable young woman checking it out. My coworker said "why did get such an ugly instrument made?" I turned to the three checking it out and said "What do you guys think of it?"
Guy 1: "It's way too feminine for me!"
Guy 2: "That thing looks gay." (sorry for the lack of PC, but that was the response)
Girl: "Aww, it's so cute. Can I hold it?"
To which I turned back to me co-worker and said "That, dear sir, is exactly why I had it made like this!"
