It's back, and still posted as a 240. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300291370370&indexURL=9&photoDisplayType=2#ebayphotohosting

This time with pup cavity pix, definitely not a solid cap. Does anyone think that it's even a 90?

stay away from this guy; a real piece of work... Both times the guitar was listed previously, he was explicitly told it was NOT an FLG-240, and he STILL advertises it as so..

... and sold again, only this time for $900 USD.

Yeah, I still think it's a 90. If the weight is over 10 pounds, then maybe not such a bargain, even at that price...

And yes: this seller IS a real piece of work.

Maybe I am crazy, but decided 900.00 was a fair price for at the least, a very nice FLG90 in excellent condition.The deal includes a hard case and free shipping......Will be sure to post pics and info after I receive it

if the seller continually refuses to be honest, he should change his eBay ID from americanhome to terroristhome ......................

just now re-read the description

here is a quote: "Solid Maple ?Tiger Flame? top (not a veneer or photoflame)"

Then the guy has photo number 10, that shows no center seam in the maple top.

This guy should be a politician ........................

The guitar arrived today and here are some specs I believe to be true....One piece back,...what appears to be a seam in the pic. of the toggle switch cavity is a wavey grain line verified with a straight edge...Nitro finish verified with acetone test....pups are not gold back as they appear in the sellers pics which I assume was from the flash.So pups dont appear to be original .....rest of electronics appear to be stock with oil filled caps......Top is obviously a laminate but what a beautiful one it is...The one fact the seller was correct about is the condition.Its as close to mint as it gets ....Bridge is stamped GIBSON ABR....The double ring tuners are stamped KLUSON DELUXE not fernandes as I thought it should?...The frets have either been replaced or the fret edge binding not done completely over the ends.they seem partially covered only the bottom half does this make any sense?........will have pics in a few days to try and illustrate


Pretty sure its a FLG 90 from 1980 or 81...serial # points to 1980 but headstock says 1981????

Seller agreed to refund 300.00 for ALL the errors in listing, so final cost 600.00 deliverd.I think I can live with that
