yesterday me and my friend went to the guitar store. he doesent play guitar but he listens to plenty of rock/classic and that stuff. anyway were there, and they just brought this jackson kelly, a gibson les paul, and fender telecaster. so he goes "Wow look at that sharp lookin' guitar(the kelly) that for sure what im gonna buy when i start playing man. thats tru classic rock dude, and i bet you the AC/DC guy plays one!"
me and some other people there are rolling on the floor and while he looks at us he shouts out "N00BZ!"
Anyway i explaind it to him later ......but do you have similar expiriences?
its just like the "Dumbest thing a guitarist has ever told you" thread exept its about non-guitarists.....

soooo........go on. tell your story

Went in a guitar shop with my mate, she asked (too loudly) why some guitars had 6 strings and some had 4. Easy enough mistake for someone who knows nothing about guitars to make though.

I don't talk to guys about guitars who don't play guitars or basses. I find it better to keep myself in conversation with guys who I know I can talk to about that stuff.

This one time I opened this thread full of self-righteous pricks who made fun of people for not knowing as much about guitar as them, and they all had tiny little penises! I think it was called 'Dumb Friends Anyone?'. I'd never seen so many clueless twats in my life, it was hilarious!

Imagine the awesomeness of completely black strings. Just imagine.
#21
well i was the victim in this one, so this guy, who's probably 30 comes up to me in the guitar store, and goes: check this 8 string guitar out. so i go over, he seemed friendly (either that or a molester) and start playing, i don't look at the frets when i play, so i'm playing something, over the mountain, if i recall, but it's hard as hell, i figure i'm just not warmed up and continue, but it just sounds like shit, and the solo was the sloppiest thing i've ever played. the guy just start's laughing his ass off, and i look down, and it's an 8 string bass .
me = pwnt
