So I opened my new pack of Super Slinkies today and, lo and behold, they accidentally put two .16s in it, making it seven strings in the pack! So that's six plus a spare G

Anything like this ever happen to you, with picks/strings/whatever? Share your tales

When I ordered my guitar, they shipped it the wrong colour, so they felt bad and gave me a couple of picks when they sent back the guitar of the right colour.

Not guitar related, but I bought Led Zeppelin's How the West Was Won album and got two Disc 3's.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

Go see U2, then you can say you contributed money to Bono's giant Irish tower built out of the blood, tears, and the hopes of African children.

i went to buy a squier and got a JEM.



(not guitar related) But I did go to buy Grandia II at Gamestop a few months ago, and got Grandia III due to the dude at the desk attempting to flirt with his co-worker, which is like 15 bucks more on the used market. Went to another store and got Grandia II. So I got both games for like 30 bucks, when normally it would have been close to 50 normally.

when I bought my acoustic, I got 5 free picks and a string winder for free. And i didn't have to pay sales tax(tax was 14% at the time), because I paid cash.

Got some patch cables and some .73 tortex picks for free when I bought my DD3 pedal some time ago.

I got 7 picks in a pack of 6 Jazz III's GASP
As for the free G string... LOL...
I think sometimes the higher gauges will pack a wound and unwound G string in the package. It's happened to me before.

oh yeah, well when I got my Marshall for free (birthday) the shop threw in a 20 ft peavey cable that I still use all the time. It works great.

When I ordered my carvin, I was poor (still am, due to ordering of carvin...) so I chose the cheapest case for them to send me, instead they gave me the more expensive tweed case
Carvin DC127+Custom Lacewood Build+Godin SD--->Traynor YCV50BLUE

My Build IT'S DONE!
