    If you had screamed "shazam" while touching it, you would get super powers for sure.

    I almost touched his Alembic Spider bass that was on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. It was millimeters away from my fingers. All I wanted to do was just rub some of the fingerprints off, set it up, and give it some nice non-rusted strings.. it looks like it was found in an attic, not some prized relic on display in pristine condition at a museum.
     
  6. it was so stupid...they don't allow you to hear what they sound like..Their attitude:
    ..If you want to hear what they sound like..buy the record..
     
  7. you can understand the not letting you play the spider, have you seen the gear john used just to get connected to his pre?

    they would prob have no idea how to set it up

    Imagine if as you had touched it it had collapsed and ended up in a broken heap on the floor...the "do not touch" signs are there for a reason... ;)

    He coulda just said it was already falling apart on the inside from not being played. It just now got around to physically showing.

    I was at that exhibit last week, when I was in Dublin for a few days. There was a lot of cool stuff there, but not enough basses IMO. What did you do, just reach under the plastic surround?

    Are you kidding? Entwistle isn't an idol of mine, but if I was standing next to McCartney's bass, I'd touch it and kiss it and *gladly* go to jail for a few days. I wouldn't take it though...wouldn't want to rob everybody else the chance to look at it.
     
  12. Very nicely done dude!

    It reminds me of the time when i was in the US, and crossed the chorded off section and dived into Ecto-1 :D

  16. Felony? Eh, probably just a misdemeanor.

    Still, I'd call that a bargain, the best you e-e-ver had. The best you ever HAAAAAAAAAAAD! :bassist:

  20. You should buy a similar P bass, knock it about a bit so they look similar, and swap em!
