    They should send him a string-lowerer.

    Nah, I've heard the quality of Washburn's string-lowerers has gone down after they moved production to Guam.

    He'd be better of sending the bridge to Lockheed-Martin to have the saddles machined, much better value for money imo.

    I think it was intended to infer that it was in fact you that wrote the above letter, and didn't include a single full stop.

    Anyway, very funny, but surely bogus?

    Edit: dammit, where did sneha's post go? :)

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually serious. I teach kids who think like this. Naturally when I try to correct them, they blow me off and then get mommy to buy them a more expensive instrument. Then they wonder why they can't play like Geddy Lee on their Fender Custom Shop Jazz...
  14. It could be either. Could be a spoof of someone who thinks like that, or it actually be someone who thinks like that! I wouldn't be surprised either way.

    Your comment is actually the direction I was hoping this thread would take. Regardless if this letter is real or not, it's a bit disturbing the line of thinking displayed, and I am personally seeing it more and more.

    How many times on TB do we see a bass being bashed because the action is too high? Similar sort of thing.

    I think the bigger underlying problem is a LOT of people out there are
    c)have no self control coupled with an inability to any commitment to learn anything about's either 100 perfect, or a litigious offense.
    d)REALLY effing stupid.
    e) all of the above

    The bottom line for me is this letter expresses a lack of accountability which I'll assert is becoming more prevalent among both youngsters and adults. My hunch is this letter is a joke and is a riff on the attitude of some individuals today who do not know what hard work is and have a sense of entitlement.

    The letter felt like a joke, but I would not be surprised at all if it ended up being real. Maybe it's *this* generation, maybe it's not. I could see myself or one of my buddies sending a letter like that when we were in our early to mid teen years.
