    Thanks Rango but does honestly, that thing does not even look like a fake Les Paul? Either this guy is a moron or truly a shyster. I'll leave it to the LP affectionado's to fight that one out.

    The problem with a dry sense of humor is a lot of people will take you seriously. I don't think it's a bad idea, what he did. He put up this hilarious auction at a ridiculous price, and hey, if someone bites it's their own fault for being a dumba$$. I mean, there's an Anchorman reference right there! This is clearly a joke. However, I bet he never does it again. This is the guy at the moment:

    Holy crap, the guy was serious? It wasn't a joke?

    That surprises me.

It's a really good guitar. This guitar will re list at $450 with hard shell case if interested. but for your benefit, you need to learn some manners. You don't just email people out of the blue and call them frauds and attack them and harass them. You could have tactfully asked me what's the deal with the guitar. This was an honest mistake and not intention. I apologize for my mislisting and and I will be re listing the guitar properly."

    For the record, I hardly attacked him. I just asked him if he also had a bridge for sale. His overly defensive reaction maybe saved an ignorant sole from falling for his fraud. I should question him about selling his revised listing at $450 but I got other things to do.

    Good Job bringing this to our attention Dear Mr. Big Fat Moderator.
