Thread: Shenanigans!

  1. #1

    Shenanigans!

    Touring the internet I stumbled upon what is called a "Vintage Gibson Les Paul 59' Burst Restoration." Here's the link:

    https://www.gbase.com/gear/gibson-le...herry-sunburst

    I had posted this in the '52-'60 section, but it was promptly (and correctly) removed.

    It could go in the "1961-1969" section, but it could go in the "Cool Non Gibson" section too...but it's only about 1/1000 of a 1961 LP. It's 999/1000 non Gibson and not very cool. I cannot figure out where to put it, so I'll try here in the Backstage Area.

    Discuss.

    I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when I saw it described as a restoration .
    This is a song from the new album, it's a deep meaningful song this one... No, it's not whiskey in the fucking jar... Philip Lynott

    Looks like fraudulent advertising to me. There's nothing 1959 about it, and besides a [supposed] Gibson pearl logo, there is nothing Gibson about it.
    I pity anyone who falls for this.
    Gbase should consider taking it down.
