Another fleabay scam?

Recommended Posts

Brutal. It would hardly be possible to pull this one off in the days of the Internet.

 

The company producing these even went through the trouble of stamping the metal tailpiece with the Gibson logo.

I believe James Best was a decent guitar player a while back. Seems I recall he was "Sheriff Roscoe" in a TV series, and was in a few "Andy Griffith" shows a few decades ago..

Makes sense, make a worthless guitar worth something....that is unless the signature is fake as well lol.

From what i can gather even the signature is only worth 39 bucks tops so at least that part is probably real, Afterall who would fake a 30 dollar sig? lol [biggrin]

Wouldn't play it, even if it weren't being flogged as a "vintage Gibson Hummingbird Dove..."; it's ugly as hell...

Sold. 25 bids.

 

Cost to someone of a lesson learned: $620. One can only hope that the buyer is a big fan of a certain "James Best".
