Hi Guys... I't time for somebody to step up, and it looks like it's gonna be me and since i'ts actually only about vintage stuff I thought this would be the best area! I'm calling Detlef out on his BS now, I know I defended the guy in the past but his horrible business schemes just gotta be up in the open! Detlef is the person who sells you a refinished '58 burst (that later on turns out to be a refinished '58 Goldtop within 1 minute of Eric Ernest looking at it) telling you it's all original and even writing authentication & cites papers about it, later on at home you realize the cream M69 rings are DMC and a year later you realize the "original" pickguard Detlef took out of his safe while doing the sale (telling you it's 100% original and from his personal stash) is fake as well! I had to bring 5 out of 8 vintage guitars/amps back after a few days (it's a 4 hour drive for me to Frankfurt) because something was not right about them. This includes an 60's Fender amp that started smoking the second you plug it in, a WW2 era Gibson Archtop that clearly had a refinished headstock under blacklight telling you some BS story about how it could be possible for it to be original and putting it back online as soon as he got it back (and selling it), the refinished '58 Burst that was actually a Goldtop with most parts being fake & a late/early 64/65 Marshall Bluesbreaker for 12k€ that is a straight up fake (confirmed by Eric Ernest vie UK Marshall Expert John Marlow) while telling about all the fakes from Music Ground in UK (I heard stories about them working together from a few sources now so jokes on me for even believing one word). I mean I spend 6 figures at his store and this is how he takes advantage of a customer like that? I don't even wanna know how he manipulates his regular customers that spend a couple grand at his place... I don't even wanna give the amp back, he'll just swipe everything under the rug and resell it to somebody else. I'll take the hit (it's for sale for 4500$ as a replica in the Member Classifieds) so I can make all of this public! Even if guys like him continue to ruin their reputation and giving all the good guys a bad spotlight, at least you gotta speak up! I hope y'all got some stories as well or at least some thoughts about what Detlef is doing! Peace Out, or like they would say in Canada: Peace Ut!
