This must be an ad for elderly.
I personally didn't have the same experience with them. Six months ago I orderd online. After a few days I called since I didn't get an email. They said it'd ship the next day. It didn't. Phone calls and email they didn't ship for two weeks. With no good reason, and no sorry.

In any case, as an owner of a Gibson I appreciate the fact that Gibson is willing to ensure their dealers are reputable.

You're just jealous because you have no groove....
Guitarists are such insecure poseurs.....

BTW, I have a 6 string bass. 30" scale EADGCF

Good one. You have to tell us how long your scale is yet guitarists are the insecure ones.

Nope. If it's tuned to the same INTERVALS as a guitar, it's a guitar, regardless of the pitches.

Think of it this way: if a GUITAR player can play it, it's a guitar.

So, as mine is tuned EADGCF, same as many 6 string basses, in the same octave as a bass, it makes it a bass. Which I already said a few posts up.

how does one come to the conclusion that a guitar player could play it only because it has six strings ?
There's not only tuning that is different. Lets talk about scale, higher string action, string gauge, sound ........

I met many quitar players who thought that bass-playing was just the simpler incarnation of guitar-playing. Needless to say that all of them sounded awful when attempting to do so even after some practice .......

Owning two basses, though not as cute ones as Brett's six-string
