    On eBay I saw this listing for the new Riviera Blue Streamliner with P90.

    However the price was eye-popping: $3599! (Normal street price is $599.)

    Then I read the copy, which is clearly for a different model, the Gretsch Guitars G6136T- AZM Limited Edition Falcon Bigsby Azure Metallic. That one does sell for $3599.

    I assume the seller combined two listings by accident, or they are hoping for the biggest sucker, willing to spend an extra $3000 for a guitar. (Where's that buyer? I have a few things for them to look at! :D)

    There's one born every minute, well maybe more often now.

    my local shop here in NZ has that exact guitar on the wall. it is listed at $1100 New Zealand dollars. don't know how it could inflate to what was being asked.

    I ignore any online seller who can’t or won’t post a picture of the actual item they are selling.

    When I click on the sellers other items he has a lot of guitars for sale. And from my brief peruse they are priced reasonable. I'm going to give the benefit of a doubt and say he got 2 listings mixed up.

    That's actually my thought, I just thought it was funny.

    Yea, that's one mixed up listing and I suspect just an error. He's showing a Streamliner body with i guess a P90, listed as new but reasonable certain that never came out of a factory that way, but then again neither did the Falcon. Maybe this is why he chose bizzareguitarreno as a used ID?

    I know that name.

    I have bought from him in the past: a Fender CS Jazz Bass relic and had no issues. Sure someone will hit him up over this discrepancy
