Could Do Better

Here's a quick one.

 

A few years back the band I was in were playing in a decent pub-venue near Glasgow. Everything had gone well enough and as time moved on, I noticed an older guy sitting at the bar who seemed to be showing great interest in the bass gear on stage. After the last number, he came over and said that he had enjoyed the gig and that he had played bass in a number of bands for a long time. "What's that bass you're using pal?", he asked me. I told him it was an Overwater Jazz. His reply was that, the band sounded good, but I should try to upgrade from the Japanese copy, to a real Fender. "You'll never look back" was the sage advice as he toddled towards the door. "It's not Japanese", I replied. Stopping in the doorway, he said, "Don't be fooled by the name son. They're all at it, to make you think they're made in the UK. Check inside the neck pocket. It'll have Japanese writing in there!"

 

What can you say?

I've had that with my P5! Someone complaining I was using a cheap "knock off" instead of a real Fender 😂

The world is full of fools. My village has an idiot, but I've never met him.

That's not a rawk face, it's me realising I'm only playing a copy of a Fender.

🥴🥴
