Found this on local craigslist
I am NO expert but it sure doesn't look right to me. And THAT's saying something!
The gretsch on the head stock doesn't look well done.
I'm no expert but those look like legitimate guitar strings
I dunno Larry, it looks like a chance for you to buy something yoooneek and speshil. Not everyone will have a Country Club like that.
And for a fraction of the price... 250/100
F-holes, fretboard, headstock....everything looks wrong to me!
You are probably right on that one Jay!
Yeah, extra emPHaSiS on the speshil!
Funky chicken on the pickguard.
Fake as fake can be. Not the worst I've seen though.
Come on guys. I mean, obviously it's a 6120 Pre-Fender-Pre-Gretsch Orange Falcon 1997 Reissue.
Even I knew that one...
The only thing more amazing than how fake this guitar is, is how hard the guy selling it is trying to convince you its all legit.
Flagged the listing as counterfeit, and I encourage others to do the same. This guitar was discussed at length on the GDP here:
The seller is full of it, and that's being rather kind about it. He's right about one thing though, it's not Japanese... it's Chinese.
Brooklyn NY my a$$...
Wow, that's about the first time I've followed a link to the GDP and there's actually been something there. Every time I search for a subject, a link pops up for that place and it's always just a page with the correct header and nothing else.
Interesting set bridge.
Strings look legit to me
chinese body, cheap parts swapped for the real deal, tryin' to dupe some rubes.
The GDP had a major database issue recently. And discovered they didn't have a good backup to do a restore. Hence the blank pages, and a lot of lost info.
The pups, tuners, strings, and bigsby looks legit. But that's about it.
