    i'm sorry. I'm new to this site. I did a search and didn't come up with anything so I assumed no one here has seen it.
    I guess you guys clicked on the thread just to be sarcastic

    That is definetly more of a sniper rifle than any kind of machine gun.

    Guilty as charged. Welcome aboard and don't take it personally. Sometimes this place is more like TalkSarcasm, but that thing has had it's own thread started 3 or 4 times in the past 2 months. There's a regular bunch of folks here who scour e-bay almost constantly, I have yet to find something strange before they have already posted it.

    That is some funny sh*t! This is my fave Mimi quote so far:


    what's wrong with this bass? well, besides everything, nothing. a keen observer will notice the chipped and unfilled fretslots in the balsa-like fingerboard and deduce that this piece of crap was once fretted. it is now fretless crap. then there's the functionless X-acto knife pickguard - yuck. to top it all off, there's a mother-of-toiletseat inlay on the headstock -

    Mother of toiletseat!? Comic gold. :D

    Welcome to the forums GregP...well, I've been visiting these forums for over a year and haven't seen that machine gun guitar, so thanks for the good laugh.

    You'll find 2 kinds of posters on here: those who have lives, and those who don't. Those of us who have lives would just move on to the next thread if we've read it something like it before. Those who have no life live-and-die on these forums feel it necessary to reply with sarcasm to somebody just trying to share something funny, or pointing out that you used CAPS or whatever.

    Don't let Talkbass-snobbery discourage you. Most around here are the good kind. Cheers mate!

    Most sniper rifles are a bolt action holding one to three rounds. That thing has about a ten round clip on it. But it does have a scope. Machine guns usually don't have scopes because in full auto mode they will bounce around quite a bit and it would be hard to keep something lined up. But on the other hand, I had a couple of Mini-30's that were scoped. So who knows. It's a weird bird, that's for sure. I would stay away from it unless you are planning to use it for a bass. ;)

    I've been coming here for quite a while and never noticed a post on this. Some people just sit around and wait for a post that they can tell everyone has been made before, and most of the time they make a big deal about using the search function. Seems they have nothing better to do.

    Anyway, thanks for the post. I think that's got to be the stupidist bass I've ever seen. Good for a lot of laughs!!! :)
