    So, This has happened before, (And I know a couple other people here siad the same!) there I was at a Sam ash (HATE THAT PLACE!!!) playing a 5 string warwick rockbass (yuck) and this girl walked in... and looked at me playing it and said... What is that? Bass have 4 strings... And guitars have 6... so what is that? SO two things crossed my mind... either "Its a Bass-Guitar" or "A mandolin".... I Chose Mandolin and she said "Oh"...

    Lol, I just thought that was funny and got a chuckle out of it!
  2. The correct answer was a "Warwick". Just leave her befuddled.

    Yeah, that's probably better than going into the science of it. :)

    Was she pretty? :D

    I wonder why you're in a store you hate playing a bass you hate?

    You should have left the bass and the store, WITH THE GIRL!!!!

    Priorities man!!!
  7. Should have told her it was a tuba, she was obviously oblivious to the fact that mandolins have 5 strings by the sounds of it anyway.

    Egh. Warwick should stick to warwick, ya know?
    Moral of the story:
    When at sam ash, drop the bass and grap the girl.
  12. I love warwicks, but hell, I'd go with the girl. I can always come back later. :p

    (Never been to a SamAsh nor a GC, but from what I read about them: )

    Was she a salesman. . . salesperson?

    Hmm... this is almost off topic, but since there was a bass involved, off to Miscellaneous.

    Since it was only a rock bass i would have used it like a axe and removed her head. :eek:

    Naa at that point i would have told her that i played in (tried to take a guess of cheezy bands she might like) You know JEDI might trick her!

    I'm disappointed for an entirely different reason. Mandolins have 8 strings...
