This just showed up on Oz Ebay...3 day auction ..no reserve....seller in Malaysia...such a short auction with no reserve...

I looked at his feedback...no guitars...all he has sold before are a bunch of "Adam Lambert Musical Wall Clocks"...was he some guy from American Idol or some show like that.. [mellow] ?

Anyway...all seems a bit sus to me.....

 

Just clicked link to see what this sold for..$2990...then I clicked "sellers other items"..there it is again the same guitar on another 3 day no reserve auction.The only other things he has sold are 23 Adam Lambert Musical wall clocks.........maybe he has 22 custom J-200's!

I think those are pictures of a genu-wine SJ-200 custom. It looks real nice. it's a shame the sunburst on the back is a little off.

 

The auction looks a little suspicious for sure though and as was said already - rounding up a bunch of pictures of a nice guitar is pretty easy

It doesn't look like that the seller has got the guitar. These are not pictures taken by the seller. Makes you think.... If I were you, I wouldn't do it. If the deal looks too good to be true, it probably is ](*,)

I was perving at guitars last night and came across this J-200.

Not a bad copy, burst is wrong and the electrics, but it worries me buying a second hand, cause it ain't that far off [scared]

 

I agree. Only after you drew suspicion, I compared this one to the one on Gibson's site. Side by side you can see obvious differences, but otherwise you would be fooled.
