    Do we also allow weird looking pedals?

    Edit: pedals now have an unique thread

    From the want ads: not a bass, but a set of bass strings.

    What kind of bass is tuned EBGD?

    I like the hand signs for those who don't follow the Hindu-Arabic numeric symbols.

    Anybody ever seen another Farber? Note the Guild knobs and the trio of stealthy pushbuttons under the lower edge of the pickguard:

    It’s probably really comfortable to play, but the turdliness would wear on my eyes. As a Rick player, I’ve sacrificed comfort on the altar of Coolness, so sue me.

    Bass ukes are EADG. These are tenor guitar strings. Tenor guitars have four strings and are typically tuned DGBE.
