    I don't often post on this forum but having been involved with this subject a few time , I decided to give my opinion ,
    I stated a few facts and then to prove that I had a bit of knowledge on the subject ?
    I stated that I had some 50,s les pauls , This senior member would not believe me because I could
    not post pics and as such gave me a load of abuse ,told me I was a shark looking to give false information and then try to rob the ring for myself at a lower price ?
    This is far away from the truth . I should be looking for an apology from this member ?
    but I know it will never happen ?
    Anyway I now have my computer fixed and know how to post pics here are a few of my les pauls ! hope you like them ?

    Leave it to Chasen to sleuth it out! LOL!

    Yeah, I remember reading some of this thread a while back!

    Hey Tom, it is a sad truth that many people you first meet are not what they seem. :dunno:

    Someone once told me there is no pr!ck like a pr!ck that can pass for a nice guy! :eek2:

    You could be, and prolly are, a genuinely nice, honest guy, but unfortunately for you several hundred other 'faux nice guys' have already come by before you and ruined it for you. :slap:

    You will become a senior member when you reach 100 posts, that's all that means. It's not an indicator of knowledge or experience.

    That's why if we take away the emotions of what was said he is, I hate to say it, right...... :wow:

    We need photos to separate the liars from the real deal. You would not believe the amount of BS artists that walk through here from all over the world! :run:

    It's not meant to be taken personal, and I for one am sorry you feel badly handled. These guys can be a little rough at times.:rolleyes:

    But on the flip side, until you have sat next to these guys as they take on a nasty troll or scammer, you cannot appreciate how effective their knowledge skills are at weeding out the rats. :bowdown

    Please believe me, there is no genuine malice toward you or anyone on here or I wouldn't have signed up here. :welcome:

    I don't like flame wars or character assassinations.

    We have very good mods here that don't like it either. It's a good place and we are glad you came back with your treasure chest of guitars! :drool:

    Some on here have already asked for the rig rundown... You have the floor. You have the proof... You have the ball, run it! :cheers:

    Well, lets say your first posts weren't really the best way to present yourself to the other guys. ;)

    Said that, wonderful guitars there. :welcome:

    Don't worry. Not all of us thought you were a fraud. Amazing how much your '59 looks like mine, despite being from a different series.

    BTW - Do you also own a bunch of Historic Makeovers? I thought I might recognize the couch.

    Jaw dropping for sure! I absolutely love 1895 :)drool:) and how 'bout some pics of your '53?

    On a side note, don't take it personally, there are a lot of scammers/trolls and on the flip-side, some take this stuff way too seriously.

    Tom, I wouldn't be posting pics of what must be in excess of $1M in guitars, and then saying, "I'm not home right now".

    I'm guessing he has a killer alarm system, a vault, and really good insurance!

    Oh, and guard dogs! Lots of 'em!
