He's 14 and he just bought the +44 Mark Hoppus signature bass (the cream one). Anybody get pissed at kids getting expensive stuff like that? Not that he can't play bass, he's done really well for playing 7 months, but he now has a £600 signature Fender and he can just about keep time.


Who else gets pissed at this kind of crap?

I've been playing for 4 years and all i got in that was a Squier P-Bass Special

Rub your wang over every inch of it, video this, and leave the tape under his pillow. That'll do the trick. And make sure you leave a few pubes in the pickups, just to be on the safe side.

What is +44? And owning a £600 instrument doesn't mean you are rich.

It was the only task I would undertake...

Get a job.
However he got the money, he got it and he bought something nice with it.

The kid obviously earned it and be happy hes actually playing it. Jesus christ, the kid bought himself an expensive bass and intends to play it. BOO FÚCKING HOO!
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING
and

either:
a) he saved his money and/or got a job, and you didn't but YOU'RE the one complaining which is messed up

or

b) your parents like him better, which is probably your fault cuz you seem like a whiny jealous brat to me

It's not about the gear, it's about who is playing the instrument.

But If he got that, he probably has a job, and is older, and is better than you.

Is this true? ಠ_ಠ

edit: Stop fuckin complaning, I'm rockin a starcaster, but I'm working hard to afford a new guitar. He probably worked hard for it, and wants to enjoy it. now piss off.
Re-read OP, he's not older, but you stil seem like a whining biyotch.

Well Mark Hoppus has a £600 signature Fender and can only just keep time (Sorry, couldn't resist, I do like Hoppus really).

Anyway, I just spent £500 on a Fender and I'm not rich in the slightest. I worked for it. Learn to do the same and stop whining.

You are a rich bitch is your parents bought you an expensive guitar and you can barely pay it.
Seeing as you bought your own from working and hence are presumably pretty good at guitar after putting in so much time and effort for one... that makes you an absolute bastard because I would love a brilliant three grand guitar like that.
You heard me, go **** yourself! I'm joking...btw

Umm...if your brother is a rich kid, you are a rich kid.

Rich kids get their money from their parents, you share parents.

yeah this.. and if he's bought it himself, that is awesome for a 14 year old.

I'm left handed.

He didn't earn it, he came into some money because somebody in my family died and he blew most of it on a bass when he can barely play. Worked hard for it my ass. I'm 17 so he's younger than me, and he can't even get a job. He basically got it for free.

£600 is a lot of money at barely 14.

Did you say he bought it? As in with his own money/mostly his own money? If so then stfu. Its his money, doesn't matter how he came into the money or how well he plays, he can spend it how he wants. You probably would have done the same thing if you were in his position, no matter what you say.

I've been playing for 6 years now and i have these: Maruszczyk: ELWOOD X 24 'Redburst' Lakland: Skyline Series 55-01. And that isn't even half of my gear.
The fun part is that i paid for all of it myself, i only got the cheapest bass from my parents. Some Stagg. So stop complaining and get a decent job. I managed witha paper round, its doable trust me.

I hereby take back what I said earlier.

But how did he get the money, and not you?
#38
If he's your brother, then don't you have the same rights as him?

And if he saved up for it, quit complaining and do the same

UPON FURTHER REVIEW: So he made a good investment with the money he inherited rather than blowing it on something stupid. Good for him.

He's 14 and he just bought the Super Mega Power Ranger robot action figure. Anybody get pissed at kids getting expensive stuff like that? Not that he don't know the names of any of the rangers, he knows most of them, but he now has a £600 signature Ranger robot and he hasn't even seen the whole show yet.

Who else gets pissed at this kind of crap?

I've been watching for 4 years and all i got in that was a Power Ranger Turbo robot

That's how childish you sound.
