I know, I could tell it was a fake before the picture even loaded.:D

I was just pointing out the various grammical errors that seem to be a staple of ads for fake Gibsons, which are pretty much "cut and paste".:thumb:

There are various different ads (from different sellers), that use the EXACT same descriptions for different models.

That is an American name right?

and he has a feedback as a seller from johnny_30...who has left him feedback!!!

Sounds just fine to me!

If you look at all of his feedback it looks like it's all as a buyer, not a seller. Also a red flag to look for when buying anything up there. Sadly looks like 2 folks got screwed on those 2 guitars. Maybe they can make them into clocks...

Yeah there's something hinky about his deals. Looking at the completed auctions and his feedback...something doesn't smell right.

Edit: Now all of his listings have disappeared.

I reported him as "report member".

His feedback was reciprocal with another scammer.

Some of us have the power...I am one of those people.

If you see a fake send it my way...I am pretty good with Gibsons...don't give a crap about Epis... but if I report it, it will get shut down. I won't report unless I am convinced but I can do as I say.

" Still up...needs more reports I guess."

Reported. That truss rod cover looks all kinds of wrong too.
