    I kid at school was telling me that he had a very special bass at his house.

    He told me a story of how when he lived in Malibu, he had a friend who's dad was a producer for Bootsy Collins... or a sound man... or something of that sort... During a recording session, Bootsy's bass mysteriously dissappeared... His friends dad had taken it.

    Now it sits at his house because for some reason his friend left it there... This thing is probably worth thousands....

    But you haven't seen it - he's just telling you about it !! :rolleyes:

    Does the word gullible mean anything to you? ;)

    Anyway - if by soem amazingly small chance, you get any real proof - there is only one thing.

    How big is this guy's dad, how mean does he look, any guns about?:meh:

    Otherwise - do the decent thing and email Bootsy or his record company - tell them the details and suggest a small reward....:smug:

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Worth thousands, eh? Just think, for only a few thousand MORE, you could own the actual, genuine Washburn replica!!

    And who wouldn't want that?

    Ahh don't mind Bruce. He's a professional skeptic.

    I'm sure kid's dad has a certificate of authenticity, right? Like they have on ebay, you know! :rolleyes:

    I believe him... He has no reason at all to lie about it... I mean, who lies about having an original bootsy bass? Most people dont even know who he is... so ya. i dont think that he is lieing.
