I'm sitting at my desk, playing my J- 200 and working it out, folks. I still sound terrible because I'm used to things with four strings, but I'm still giving it the 'ol college try. In walks the "tall one" and boom- now he's laughing like he's got the sickness. Just won't stop howling and pointing at me. I look up and say, "What the hell you laughin' at?" but by now, he's almost in tears. "You look like a circus mouse playing a doghouse bass." he choked out and all that got him was a really dirty look and the silent treatment for the rest of the day. I don't think he cared much because he would chuckle to himself for a good while after this all went down. Glad I'm good for a laugh...
Fast forward to the Columbia Guitar show this month. We're standing in a group of guys, just chewing the fat when a man walked by with this Melody Maker in his hand. Lee stopped the guy, they chatted for a few minutes and the man handed the guitar to Lee. I was still rappin' with the boys when Lee walked into the middle of the circle, handed this guitar to me and loudly proclaimed, "Here Cub. I finally found a guitar that fits a midget." This sent the entire group of guys into bent- over, belly hurting laughter and once again, I was the butt of a joke because I'm short. Well, all that got him was a really dirty look and the silent treatment for the rest of the day. I don't think he cared at all- the act was more than worth the laugh, so if you're really digging a vintage, student level, clean and original, twin- single coiled little beast to make some noise with, here it is. And, I promise to whomever buys this guitar that there will be no circus midget jokes in the case. I take my height seriously...
