Here's a question for everyone.... Let's say that you're having a custom bass built. You've been dreaming of it since you put the order in. Now, the time has finally come for it to be delivered and all you can think about is getting it and plugging it in and knowing that YOU are the first person ( aside from the builders of course ) that has ever played this beautiful, one of a kind instrument. Now let's say that you learned that someone else went to the NAMM and had the UNMITIGATED AUDACITY to play your custom bass before you!! Just for fun let's pretend that this person posts quite a bit on a certain bass message board, has a mohawk, and already owns a plethora of basses by the same luthier as the one you're waiting on. So, in this situation what would be considered adequate retribution?? My initial instincts would be to go to this individual's abode, poop on his sectional, shave his eyebrows off and string him up by the "short-n-curlys"... But that's just me... How would everone else handle this? (This is a joke people!!) edit: For those who are taking me seriously.
