    The gretsch on the head stock doesn't look well done.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
