I don't know why your getting on me for having my 13 fakes.

Absolutely nothing wrong with what you have. But I can understand it if people think it strange that you have so many. Most people will probably wonder why you don't sell them, or some of them, and get another real Gibson, if you want more than one guitar. But we can all do as we please in the end.

That does not look like Gibson to me. I may be wrong and it may be just how it looks,, But it does not look like Gibson.

I'm 99.9% sure it does. The sticker on the back does too. Why else would he blur it out?

Yah, I saw the sticker.. You are likely right. Just does not look like it reads that. Likely just from the blurring.

curious minds want to know.:) No offense:wave:

Its all good, but I'm not going to get into it. I have a real one and this is the one I am on this board for. I hope I am a member of the club with my real one and also because of my '80 Greco LPC EG-600.:slash:

I'll give props to the guy, at least he isn't trying to rip anybody off. However this is still a counterfeit guitar, blurring out the headstock logo doesn't make it OK. Not to mention openly selling counterfeit goods on Ebay isn't a very good idea. Gibson has lawyers and they are not afraid to use them.

He is not selling it as a Gibson.

Did you notice the Photoshopped blurring of the Gibson logos on the headstock and the decal on the back?

Nope, I did notice the blur of some kind, But I cant make it out and it doesn't look like Gibson

Either way, Im done. The thread should be also.

Agreed. He's not trying to pass it off as being real. But blurring out the logo can make you think that he kinda knows he's not exactly playing by the rules either...

+1,
The guy knows its a fake else he would be selling it as a Gibson and wouldn't have blurred out the logo :)

And your point being? Lets just keep our opinions to ourselves then

There's a sure-fire recipe to keep a discussion-board going, don't you agree?

:rolleyes:

If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen. Opinions are free, and free to ignore.

No, that's why we're here.


And to the statement from rallygsc - "those crappy musoland chinese," you're a moron.
You have a Japanese cartoon character for an avatar?
You're just confused or racist?

I agree that the logo appears to say Gibson, and the sticker on the back certainly appears to be the normal Gibson sticker.

Regardless of whether he's marketing it as a Gibson or not, selling a counterfeit item is, as has been stated so many times on these forums, a crime.
