Exporting all those SG's to China should certainly help with the balance of trade.
There is no revolution, only evolution..

Really? Why? (the only thing I noticed is that there is no serial number - other than that, it looks damn close - including the proper bridge)

Tokais look damn close! Easy enough to change a decal, I would have thought?

This listing (220229770816) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number.
Some people just don't like publicity I guess :D

You reckon Gibson had it pulled?

Could be - or it might have been photo's from a previous listing and the guitar didn't exist. Sure was pretty though.

Honest dealer wouldn't spell Gibson as G-ibson.

When I said it was fake I meant that either the guitar doesn't exist or it is a fake. To sum it up there was too much wrong in that auction.
