    I look forward to all of the posts/work Bobbo puts in these threads for the folks that are interested in this, if it does not interest you move on to another part of the forum, I do respect your honesty.

    Wish I had gotten a chance to give that guitar a play at the Philly show Frank but it looked so regal in it's display I was intimidated ... Maybe it was the sign ??? :hmm: :shock: :laugh2: :applause:

    Ok, so I guess I stumped you! The photos I showed above are of the real Greenie, and not the "cheap" Dave Johnson imitation!

    And, you could have tried the guitar out if you wanted to. That sign was for everyone else, and was not intended to keep the MLPers away.

    I say NAY !!! If it's on Ebay as a 60 it's a scam !!!!!! That is NOT a vintage Gibson !!!!!

    [​IMG]

    If this was a real vintage 60 burst the line drawn through the center of the tailpiece would touch the back of the bridge pickups volume knob !!! I see all the pictures from that auction are also posted at Burstserial.com ( Very fishy !!! )... Some things on the guitar look correct like the pattern in the inlays , while the knob placement thing makes me think that this is NOT a real Burst !!!
