I play a Steinberger L2, which I have had for 26 years. As long as I have played it, I usually hear this question at least a few times a month. What's Do You Call That Thing You Are Playing? Most people have no idea that it is a bass guitar, including many musicians. I always get a kick out of telling people about it. They usually follow up with comments and questions such as "It is so small", "How do you tune it?", "Where is the top?", "How do you get so much sound out of such a little guitar?", and "Where's the rest of it?" I often tell people it was on sale 1/2 off.
