I met a guy today that didn’t really seem to know much about guitars.

    I tried to engage him in some conversation but he was pretty clueless. He said a couple silly things so I mentioned my mid-50s Fender Jazzmaster. It didn’t even register. What a rube.

    What gave you the inclination he was into guitars

    Reminds me of the time i walked into a bar with an Syracuse frat t shirt on.

    A couple of guys ran over started giving me the hand signs and verbal codes . It was obvious i had no clue nor did i ever go to Syracuse

    Didn't even try to play it. I just came clean.

    He probably needed his wipers changed but didn’t let you do it either. It’s a shame because Dylan uses the same ones you were going to put on.

    ???

    Was he like some random guy you met on a road?

    Maybe he was into Golf or NASCAR. Or bird-watching. Did you ask him?

    OP, my coworker is like this. Struck up a conversation about synthesizers (specifically the interaction between the various stages of your bog standard synth, and the finer points of west coast vs east coast philosophies and resulting methodologies) and all I got was a blank stare in return.

    Doesn't this guy know ANYTHING?!

    Unless someone is sitting beside me playing their gear I really don't care to hear about it.

    You mean you thought he would believe that there was a Jazzmaster built before 1958?
