Did any of you guys read this? Pretty interesting that Gibson is getting on this horse. Maybe the mystery will finally be solved.

Well, this should be interesting, entertaining, or some combination of both.

Eric, if it's only half that you see are fake, you are a long way up the food chain! Relatively convincing fakes must outnumber the originals by a long way. I can still remember when it was reworked Tokais in a pre-internet era.

Surely someone will fake the ledger, got to be less work than faking a guitar. ;) (Haven't subscribed to TWSJ, but got the gist from reading a few lines I think.)
