Guitarist Counts Strings, Surprised at Result


We believe that Gibsder was trying to imitate the great Bo Diddley in his guitar construction.

A guitarist from London decided to count the strings on his guitar yesterday morning, and to his surprise, discovered that there were 4.

“I’ve never taken the time to count the strings on my Telecaster; I just played it. I was astounded to find that there were 4 – it explained why my attempts at playing the top two strings were strangely quiet,” Jackson Gibsder said of his discovery.

Gibsder showed us his instrument, which our seasoned eyes instantly recognised as a bass guitar. We notified him of this, and explained that this was why his guitar only had 4 strings. We also told him that his guitar was not a Telecaster, but was in fact a cereal box with 4 wool strings attached.

Musical analysts report that this kind of confusion is rampant in the UK, mainly as a result of cheap imported drugs and mind-curdling modern dance music.

  1. I still think it was a banjo he was playing (deliverance music begins)

  2. That’s exactly how we all ended up playing bass guitar. It’s also the reason why some clear-again minded bass players then start adding more strings to their basses. I’ve reached 5 by today.
