It's like a lucky dip ...............you never know what you're gonna get..............let's see if it gets to 100 posts about......... maybe nothing
I really cannot believe that you are so taken in by this story that in order to give it some credibility you went to the trouble to research the history of plastic trash bags.Fwiw, iirc the OP did not say that the guitar had been stored in a black trash bag for 55 years but rather that it was found in a closet in such a bag. The story is that the OP has no idea how or when the guitar came to be where it was found. As to the bag thing, this thread has forcEd me to learn that indeed there were plastic trash bags even before 1960....
Please tell me that you really don't think he's not lying.If you think this guy is lying about the burst, move along, go look for other threads.
Yes posting pictures on this forum is a pain in the ass. But he did manage to post a picture of a guitar, just not the actual guitar that he's talking about. How does that work then.Posting pictures on this forum always has been a pain in the ass, I don't really get why. And considering lots of guys here have thrice my age, it doesn't get any easier
Kerryboy, you are misunderstanding whatever interest Inhave here and thereby making some false assumptions. I don’t have a dog in this fight, and I always give ANYONE the benefit of a doubt until things are proven one way or the other....as I gave the person who stated that there was no way that there could have been any plastic bags in existence when this guitar was stashed. However, I am a curious sort. It took all of about ten seconds to learn that those Canadian fellows created the first plastic trash bag in 1950 no sweat at all. In fact, it took,less time than it took your to type your rather snide comment, Brother.I really cannot believe that you are so taken in by this story that in order to give it some credibility you went to the trouble to research the history of plastic trash bags.
Here here to that. Well saidIt is certainly possible that such a find can occur. Meanwhile, it’s probably a good practice not to feed the trolls. They love it when people go overboard either with disbelief or complete enthusiasm for the “new find.” They surely find it amusing to see how what they are doing seems to affect some people.
Prove that you have what you are alleging to have or stfu. I’m ok with it either way.
