    Right! This was my message to him. I’ve yet to receive a reply.

    “You know what I find hilarious about your ad? I collect Slash memorabilia. This is listed as a 1986 Slash model. Appetite for Destruction didn’t get released until July 21st, 1987 and Slash didn’t become a household name until about a year later . Gibson didn’t release a Slash signature until 1990 and it was extremely limited. Again in 1997 with the Snakepit guitar and about every 2-4 years after that. It must be nice to walk through the world without the slightest hint of a conscience. Being able to burn people out of their hard earned money that for some takes years to save, without batting an eye, takes a special kind of a**hole.”

    Yeah lol! Pathetic attempt....

    I think (and hope), that people that usually spend those money for a Gibson, have the proper knowledge to spot a fake like that...

    Was wondering that maybe we should also report to PayPal...

    I'm not sure about that.

    PayPal should refund the buyer as soon as he spot he bought a fake, then goodluck to PayPal to rescue that money from the scammer....

    LOVE it!!!! :dude: MLP members step in and take care of the fake, nice work boys!! The bid is up to $10 600 :laugh2::laugh2:

    If the auction is won, can the winner still leave negative feedback if the guitar gets pulled by Ebay?

    I've never seen one of these guitars that bid up over $10,000 actually sell. The auction always has gotten pulled.

    I reported it as counterfeit, and sent the guy info that I knew it's fake.

    I'm willing to risk my eBay "reputation" to keep somebody from getting suckered into buying this.

    If the seller genuinely didn't know, and got burned himself, I'd feel bad. But I get the feeling this guy knows full well what he's got.

    You're doing the right thing. This guy knows what's going on for sure.

    Even aside from the year, what I don't get is the back of the headstock. What were they trying to copy with that? None of those fonts are even close and I've not seen a Slash numbered like that. Did that ever happen?

    OK, I feel a bit bad piling on this guy, if he's just someone who has gotten burned, and doesn't know it.

    No no, @Craizytrain mistakenly thought the Youtuber I mentioned in the original post who was calling this Ebay guy out was the guy selling the fakes. The Youtube guy knows his stuff and approached the Ebay scammer to get him to stop and had no luck so he made a video about the Ebay guy we are talking about. NO PITTY required at all, this guy is BLATANTLY modding Chinese fakes and trying to pass them off as Real LP's!
