I couldn't help it.... As the time ticked away I felt my heart beating harder... Boom Boom, Boom Boom... with 40 seconds left my fingers flew to the keyboard and I made my bid and hit the button.... Ebay took control. A minute or two went by and suddenly the message popped up... Congratulations you just bought Item number.... My first reaction was YES!!!! Then I got gas pains....

 

I am now the proud owner of a EDS 1275 Jimmy Page Double Neck :-) One of only 250 made... What a rush!!!

Hey dave, want to hear something funny. I'm surfing the online classifieds last night, and since I'm located between Montreal and Toronto, I always check the listings for those cities as well. Some guy in Toronto has a JP Signature EDS-1275 for $4500!!!! I read the description and everything looks right, but having seen this (too good to be true, deal of a lifetime) before I click on "View sellers other items". He's got stuff like a '59 LP VOS for $2000, an original '63 SG Jr. for $1500, a $5000 watch for $2000, etc., etc... After about five minutes surfing ebay, I've found several of "his" items with the exact same photos and descriptions selling for double his prices. I report the guy and the next morning, his ads are pulled. I told the site that when you you see "No reserve" in the title of a classified ad, that should be a red flag?!?!

 

The funny part of the story is that his JP sig was serial number 054.

Small world.

one question... why? i mean pink' date=' hello kitty and guitar should never mix, imo that is.[/quote']

 

When you stand up in a bar and belt out "Detroit Rock City" on that axe, you'll know why. Besides, when my daughter is old enough, do you think I'm going to let her start off on my Gibsons?

I do a lot of surfing myself... I had also found a guy in England selling number 054. I confronted both sellers asking, hey whats up with this! The seller I bought from said it was a scam and that the other guys add was going to be pulled. Which it was. My guy has sold almost 1000 items, most of them high end guitars, with a 99.9% positive feedback. I then asked him to send me a photo of the guitar showing the back of the headstocks with an apple in between them... I bet there are not too many of those floating around the web... ;-) Well he didn't have an apple handy but he sent me the desired photo with an orange instead... That worked for me. I have spoken to him on the phone, I have his address. Until I actually have the guitar in my hot hands I will have a slight doubt but I am fairly confident that this guy is for real.... He is asking for a bank transfer though to avoid PayPal comissions that are high... :D If I get burnt its live and learn and it will heart, alot! But I'm going for it...

 

Here are the fruit photos... ;-)
