    He is definitely a scammer. But even if he didn't know before he would now. Him then passing that burn on to someone else and not taking responsibility isn't really defensible to me either.

    He knows it's a fake. Hell his whole story of Gibson and Slash and endorsements is made up garbage.

    Reported again.

    That one looks real to me. Did I miss something? Nibs is a good indicator.

    That other "Slash" listing is so funny it deserves to be posted here. I'm adding line-breaks to help make it almost legible. The length of the "sentences" makes me giggle.






    eBay item number:
    142713989166
    Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

    Also, if his story was true, and this was played by Slash live or in recordings in 1987, this guitar would be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

    As it is, it is worth tens of dollars.

    Report both seller, and eBay... directly to Gibson.

    They're the ones that get results.

    You actually think Gibson would care? I'll call them but wouldn't know where to start to find the right person to talk to!

    This guy is getting on my nerves, it's becoming personal, I don't like blatant scammers getting away with it :mad2::mad2:

    Just spent 20 mins of my life (that I'll never get back) on the phone with Ebay. The first lady I spoke to, after I explained the whole issue followed up with "Are you talking about a car Sir?..":run::facepalm: I then spoke to a guy in their security section and retold the same story and he said it would be looked into right away.. I'm not holding my breath but I hope they actually do!

    They care, and finding the link is as easy as typing "Gibson counterfeit report" into Google.

    Yes, they care very much.

    in fact, I can't recall a single time, they were notified... that they ignored it.

    I believe there should be dedicated fraud agents search these A-holes out and prosecute them with jail time. If they can do this with pedofiles, they should employ the same tactics with these jerks and arrest them at their home and collect their inventory and destroy it.

    Still up, hope whoever gets scammed by this POS sees this post and also sues eBay for facilitating fraud.
