So we were sitting around looking at this picture of two guys playing guitar. One had an acoustic and the other had a stratocaster type guitar (I don't remember)
Anyway one person points to the electric guitar and goes "What kind of guitar is that? Electric or acoustic?"
The other says "It looks like and electric acoustic or something"
So I was sitting back going . I leaned in and was like "Guys that's just an electric, you know they had them back then right?" (it was a picture from the late 60's or early 70's)
So the first person goes "How many strings does that thing have? OMG!!"
I looked and reply, "Ummm....six."
He looks at me, down at the picture, over at the other person, and then says "It looks like it has like 24. Why are all the little twisty things on one side?"

So I proceed to explain how alot of guitars have that and how alot of famous guitarist use guitars like that, then ask him if he'd never noticed. He gets this blank look on his face and stares off and goes "Huh, well I guess I never thought about it..."

Anyway, I just wanted to share that epic fail...I was facepalming for hours

well and your the second for making such a big deal out of it also for making a thread about it. dont be soo ignorant cause people dont know alot about something you know alot about. jeeze you kids need to grow up.

Just cuz they don't know doesn't make them assholes. If they actually tried to argue with you on it ya then they would suck, but it sounds like they were nice enough. So cut em' some slack.

Yeah, I also sometimes forget how much I actually know about guitar/music. Need to be careful in those moments TS.

its ok. you dont want to be "that guy" anyway.


and yeah, some people are dumb. but honestly, most music fans that dont play guitar probably dont really notice that type of thing. do you really think they care what kind of guitar someone is playing?

Which begs the question if he realizes the irony in the fact that the TS thought those kids were retarded...

And you need to stop getting so carried away over issues that you yourself claim are so insignificant. it is pretty shameful to not know the very basics of guitar and whether its electric or acoustic, even my 7 year old cousins could tell me that, and honestly I probably would have reacted the same. It's sheer stupidity on their part.

Everywhere I go, you are telling people to grow up, I think you need to grow some patience and respectability. I only tell people off if they are being unreasonable, this TS's actions are perfectly acceptable.

Well, he could.. And therefore, that is amazing. If you can switch a right handed guitar belonging to someone else upside down and play it anyway, you're a talented man.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I don't know why, but I can't stop laughing. Thank you, Jack .

They didn't know. Yes, it was kind of ignorant to not be aware that they had electric guitars back then, but give them slack, it's not like they were telling you off and trying to 'prove you wrong'. They don't seem like pricks from what you've told us.

Okay I wasn't being mean about it, I nicely corrected them.
The main thing was that I've been to multiple guitar shops with them multiple times. And they're both very smart people, it just wasn't something I'd expect to hear either of them say as they both seem to know a fair amount about music...
