Do you often accost people in shops to offer them advice? I've met people like you...

I hate being next to somebody in a big queue, I'm always thinking:
"Don't be a talker, please don't be a talker, Oh no! eye-contact, ok, roll eyes knowingly, tut, then look away"
I then become enthralled by the supermarket architecture or the comparative prices of different carrots.

:lol: , Tim. No, you're safe with me; I keep myself to myself. In both cases, I was silently checking over basses/riojas when such people tapped me and started the "Excuse me, but I can see that you're obviously knowledgeable about..." stuff.

Having asked me advice, I duly give it. The warning bells should clang when I hear "So, you don't recommend this one then?" asked for the fourth time in that ever-more-"So-ooo..." voice. You just know that they're going to buy the Marlin/Blue Nun/Tandy PC anyway and just want to hear an "expert" tell them they've made an excellent choice.

Truth be told, I'd rather be left alone.

Accosting people.. heres a good one, bear with me.
Years ago i worked clerical for BT, (Now a fully fledged ETG at TO level, we do love an acronym at BT) we had a canteen and a chatty extremely nice West Indian lady called Zena, she got on great with everyone, and she left to become a ticket collector for London Underground, so months later im going into Tower Hill tube at 6.30am and see her collecting tickets, i walk straight up to her and say 'oh hello, how are you? ive not seen you for ages!! i was wondering if you ever got to work in this station....' and we chat away for about 5 mins, shes asking me questions about my work etc, then it suddenly dawns on me, this isn't Zena, and she's chatting to me as if she knows me! so i end the conversation with a 'must go have a train to catch' and she says in a very concerned voice, 'yes, and you mind how you go love, if you need any help just ask a member of staff' .

I had to hang my head.
:lol:

Hey, Lee. The seller of that guitar, "Catsleep", specializes in listing sometimes euphemistically titled "projects". Take a look at his auction for a trio of Teiscos. We'd have our work cut out just listing the issues, never mind fixing them. Could reach triple figures, here...

C'mon, those three guitars are just crying out to be made into a triple-necked guitar by some enthusiastic but cack-handed amateur.

Well spotted Bass, i just thought of something, do all shite guitars have zero frets? this lot look like they have been dragged from the skip.

Good point. We could start a "this electric guitar has plastic machineheads and a zero fret; but it isn't cack" thread :)
