Is it a bait and switch thing?

If not, they did a nice job aging the pots, caps, and finish overall.

I guess, the pictures show a real 54 but the hole thing is fishy. Buy it now is 1800.....:hmm:

I guess others here haven't noticed this seller. I think he either hacks Ebay accounts, or has multiple ones, and it's always a wholesaler with a store. He puts on all these rare guitars, which he says he'll sell for $1800 if you email him.

I've seen this same guitar and selling format under quite a few different accounts. I even bid on one, and about 20 minutes later I got an email from Ebay stating that the auction had been cancelled. It was then nowhere to be found...until a few days later under a different sellers account. So I bid again, and the same thing happened. It's a scam.
