He proceeded to get shirty with me, assuming I know nothing about guitars and tell me "Right well I don't have singlecoils its a Gibson SG"

My response?

"Ah ok then, well you'll probably have Gibson 498R Burstbuckers if its a recent one, in which case they won't be picking up the radio signals but unfortunately gibson have switched to using conductive paint rather than copper shielding on their guitars so its quite possible you could be picking it up in the controls or the signal path, it happens all the time with gutiars I'm afraid."

His response was to tell me he'd never heard such rubbish and to hang up. Shame, since I was about to start talking about hearing radio stations in jimi hendrix tracks and pointing out to him that the spinal tap scene at the airforce base was based on a real event :P
Why didnt you let me listen in? Could you have described why theres was also a muffled laughing going on in the phone line?

Oh there was no muffled laughing, I'm far too professional for that.
