Morrighan's Mystery Date NBD /w shockingly poor photos

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Morrighan, Jul 17, 2018.


  1. A lot of girls that had the Mystery Date game also had a Suzy Homemaker Oven (with the lightbulb for proper temperature), but I prefered Mattel Hot Wheels, and Thingmakers. I wish I still had them ...

    Yes, a bit alien for me. Tuesday I tried the long strap approach. Wednesday I brought the bass up to a bit lower than my normal position: where my Ray meets my thigh when I'm seated. What seems most comfortable to me is more interactive than I'm used to. Really diggin' it.

  4. That was a fun read - reminded me of all those commercials around Christmas time while watching Speed Racer.

    There was another MD commercial where the door opened and the dud was a plumber.
    If only those girls knew that the plumber eventually bought a $175,000 house in Bridgewater and the guy in the white dinner jacket never realized his potential and wound up working at a drive-up Photomat booth.

    The stuff I lusted after as a boy in the 60’s all revolved around guns or space, Monkey Patrol cap fire tommy guns, Major Matt Mason astronaut, GI Joe, etc. Home made chemistry set black powder bombs, Lysol spray flamethrowers, etc. I once ran away from home (for about 4 hours) packing everything a Man could ever need, a bottle of root beer, two butterscotch TastyCakes, and the G.I. Joe space capsule. My 60’s childhood in a nutshell.

    Believe me, I do. Same for G&L basses, Bacchus, too.
    Same rote response every time.

    Maybe we'll catch them at NAMM. I must admit despite working VERY hard to get people into our stand - a lot of buyers seem to be there to see the big boys and not a lot else. Won't stop us trying though!
     
  11. I like your capitalization of "Man".

    It's hard to speculate what a girl in my neighborhood would have packed along for her new life as a runaway, but I'm guessing it would have included some more realistic assessments of her long term clothing and nutritional needs, a Troll with electric orange hair and green eyes, and a plastic horse with a really soft tail and mane. I know that's what my sister would have brought, maybe also her Baby Drowsy with the punked-out do from carrying it around by the hair? I'll have to ask her. I can tell you one thing for sure, this little nightmare would NOT be along for the ride. I REMEMBER this thing. Still gives me the creeps.

    The floating bridge actually allows pretty accurate intonation. I don't know why people are so down on them. And ... they give it a "sound". What specifically you worried about?

    PS: Emerald Burst currently in stock in both CHB-1 and CHB-2 ;-)
