  1. It's being advertised as a Custom Shop 59 reissue (R9). It is a very poorly done Chinese amalgamation of some Gibson-like features, but it isn't remotely close to a decent copy. And yes, the serial number and fake 'Made In USA' imprints are a total chibson giveaway. You can buy this garbage for like $2-300 shipped on aliexpress. Many of them do look quite a bit closer to the real thing, but there are usually numerous givaways regardless. This one is just beyond terrible. 🤩
  2. Wow. That's a bad one. Should report them to ebay. I would hope that there are zero people considering one of those that would be fooled, but....
  3. I'm sure that will sound better than it was ever thought possible with Josh's magic added in. Cool pics and story.
  4. About what I thought. Thanks, y'all. Couldn't remember if there were early ones that didn't say USA on them.
  5. Yes, it's a 1987. Value-wise, people with more knowledge than me about the market for these types of guitars should be along at some point to tell you $350. 🤑 (Obviously, it's more than that, but I really have no clue.) It does look to be in really nice condition. GLWTS.
  6. There's a lot of this sort of thing: https://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/crime/fl-pompano-new-temptress-arrest-20140918-story.html Women pick up guys wearing expensive watches in bars. Pretend to be interested, get back to dude's place, drug and rob him. Most of the time it likely goes unreported due to embarrassment (or marriage). But even beyond that, the gated community housewife types mostly seem to be angling for how many divorce settlements they can collect on. I know this stuff goes on everywhere, but it seems to be pervasive here. Lots of scummy, scammy people. I guess the
  7. There's one on CL here that claims to be a USA, for only $850. Could be worth buying to flip if real. https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/msg/d/west-palm-beach-thru-neck-usa-jackson/7250456562.html There's no USA on the headstock, claims to be an 'original' case yet has TSA locks. Can't see if the serial number is impressed on the fretboard. My limited searching indicates it's probably an Rr24 or something like that. There's a shitload of variations of these things.
  8. You'll have to find a widow that never paid attention. Everyone who has guitars from those makers knows exactly what it is. And some of them may or may not say Gibson on them. 👽
  9. Awesome. I have one in none more black. Stellar guitars.
  10. Welcome! 🤩 I spent a lot of work days in Boca. It's a place. It's actually mostly nice. The wealthier you are, the nicer it is. The women, too, though most of them are thinly veiled prostitutes if they are even remotely hot. So bring your Bentley. If you are looking for nightlife, Atlantic Ave in Delray, or south to Ft Liquordale are probably the closest hotspots. You cannot complain about the music scene here, because there isn't any. Occasional restaurant-grade cover bands is about it. Like everywhere else, it has it's positives and negatives, it's a matter of what you li
  11. If everyone 'cut through the mix', wouldn't that be problematic?
  12. Way cool. I love these guitars, have an HB and a P90 in 'regular' color also, the Jazzburst works very well on it though. To me, these things are considerably undervalued compared to what it would take to get anything of similar quality and construction from a current manufacturer, new or used. Which is partly why I have 2! They get even better if you Gravelin-ize them. That song sounds quite interesting also. I quite like that one.
  13. I know some of you quite like these. Claims to include the footswitch, does not mention the possibility of shipping. https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/msg/d/west-palm-beach-tech-21-trademark-60/7235747422.html
