    he got a used lined fretless musicman, with a transparent green finish where you can see the wood grain. he told me that some guy signed the headstock, and that he was gonna sand it off later. so i open the case, and see that it is in fact, signed by VICTOR WOOTEN. he had no idea who the guy was... :rolleyes:

    in other news, it was a very very smexy bass. it had roundwounds, and fairly high action, but it required almost no pressure on the strings to play. i <3 it...

    I can understand him not knowing who Wooten is. There are alot of famous players I'm sure I've never heard of either. Did you atleast tell him who it was and that he shouldn't get rid of the signature?

    Where did he get it?

    ya, he knows who it is now and wont be sanding it off. he got it in the consignment section at a guitar shop near here.
