there's actually three different people bidding on it. Maybe the seller has someone pushing up the bids

I hope the bidders have some pics other than those in the listing. I would think there could be somewhat better presentation.

Possible explanation:
3 people in US that have been after one of these guitars.
These 3 people are too cautious to buy from a foreign country or forum.
When this popped up it may have been seen as "my only chance"

I don't understand it - they're made in the same factory as some other Japanese brands, is it the name "Gibson" on the headstock?

I guess they are more rare though.

Well in Europe you can get a nice one from Villager for considerably less.

.... I think your right that it is partly the name Gibson on the headstock though and the Gibson history .........

I don't think the first one is as it has Standard on the TRC and doesn't look to have FEB. I can't see the serial number unfortunatly.
