    Nope, it's still there. Sometimes full links don't work but if you search the item id (150678564423) it shows up.

    As for me I think I am finish with evilbay,anyway as a seller. i put a set of Seymour Duncan 59s on there for 90 bucks. They sold in about 40 minutes fast, I was happy. Ship them out next day, buyer got them in 4 days.2 to 3 weeks went buy I had to call them ask them to release my money. Then they said it would take another 4 days fo get into my bank account. I've had nothing but good ratings from people. I went to use UPS tru PayPal UPS wanted my card number where I lived at before I moved here a bunch of B.S.. I told them when I go to my local UPS on my own they don't ask all then questions. I told them all they needed to know was the address it was being sent from and the address it was being sent to. I think I would rather deal with Craigslist. Ebay is starting to really suck in my opinion. I've been a member 2yrs very good standing. At least the Post office don't leave $2000.00 dollar guitars leaning on the stairs if your not home for someone to steal. I deal with the post office when they brought my last guitar they left a card when I wasn't home where to pick it up. Sorry had to get it of my chest.

    Weird. Now, I'm not a seller but I didn't realize that Paypal would hold money like that. Aren't you supposed to wait until the $ are in your account before shipping? I thought that is how it all worked, but I am speaking from ignorance. Is this sort of thing normal?:hmm:

    It's really simple: Never ship anything until you are notified that you have been paid. It doesn't matter if the auction ended, wait until that person pays you.

    Then keep in mind they are paying to your Paypal account, not your bank account. Transferring money from your Paypal account to your bank account always takes 3-4 days. It's the same as if you are depositing a check - the money's not really available to be withdrawn until it has cleared all the internal steps and checks.

    As far as shipping goes, you can use anything you want. If you got a problem with UPS then don't use them.

    Another fake. To my knowledge, Gibson never made a lefty version in this model. I know I've seen these all over China.

    The color on this so called "Custom" caught my eye while scrolling through eBay, but then I realized...Gibson never made a Custom this color! It's a fake...

    eBay listing number: 320881319983

    Looks like a pawn shop, probably didn't realize what he received.

    In the last couple of days I've watched a few guitars listed in great original condition asking very low prices but only taking Discover card payments? The first was a 1957 LP Special with Lifton selling for $4700.00, and this (Vintage 1952 Gibson Les Paul Gold Top Clean original) with case perfect condition with Lifton ending bid to only $5600.00 when it ended. I don't know anything about these two sellers, but can't imagine this is a straight deal based on the price? I hope these guys got the deal of the year, but I don't believe they did.
