Can someone give me a nudge when it kicks off properly? can barely keep me eyes open with all this posturing.

No implied threat, never felt the need to use 'em personally. See you on the field of play....

Gary, have you forgotten what it's like here in the UK, OK the north of the U.K. a where a few of us try to eke out a living. It frickin' cold up here man. Ourmaninthenorth has the inside scoop on the situation has he's been to see the toothless soothsayer in the tap room of the Olde Man and Scythe over two halves of Black and Tan. The word is, summer will be on a Thursday this year, in late July. On this day, my testicles will appear and I'm afraid Mrs Twit will have me locked in the bedroom for the day for our annual lard rubdown and mating, followed by 2 woodbines, two IPA's and a fish supper. It's the only day I grow a pair and I won't be able to get near an internets.

Sorry man, if she gets TB next winter, I stand a chance of calling you next summer day.

Rob, I love the humor... I'd expect a phone call... BH

Yep, we get it.

We also acknowledge that you would never knowingly sell, or participate in the sale of, a fake guitar. We also acknowledge that you would never consider colluding to defraud or deceive.

We also acknowledge that you would never do "special favours" for local criminals like Justin Harrison.

We also acknowledge that your solemn word is your unimpeachable bond, entirely impervious to nefarious influence.

:salude

Numerous people on this Forum, both dealers and individuals, have sold replica Les Pauls.
How is that different than your statement I colored in red? :hmm

Hernia, you talked to "The Kid" yet?

C'mon man, you bleated about me calling you and arranging things.

What's the juice?

The nomenclature is important...help me out Tom by way of example. What sort of guitars does your mate Max produce? Replicas or Fakes?

I think it's how you represent them.

I have a replica, it's a fantastic guitar. I made sure I posted on the net about it, including pics and serial number, and always refer to it as a replica. That way, no one in the future can misrepresent the guitar.

Now, if I had been shrewd/dishonest (take your pick), I could have kept quiet, beavered away, sourced all the necessary original parts and represented it as an original. Then, in my opinion, it becomes a fake.

And if I was marketing a fake, I would have to keep firm and not waiver from my story for even one instant, otherwise the veil would drop and I would be revealed as a fraud.

I really like good replicas, I really dislike fakes. It is that clear to me.

It's a Cliffhanger, the credits are rolling.

We may have to wait until next weeks episode to find out.

I've talked to the script writers, apparently they have written me out, I'm going to die in a tragic accident whilst attempting to restring a fake guitar with 13's. The headstock flies off and hits me square between the eyes. The postmortem reveals junior studs in my body and a failed widows peak. No way I could have survived.

Re: 1960 Gibson Korina Explorer " Kandye Kane " Guitars West Owned on ebay

Good Morning My Fellow Yankers & Wankers!!! Mr.T m/o/g, please advise... How is everybody doing today!!??? First off I've just been informed from my good friend El Paso Lasso that I to change a nickname of one our guest to "Litte Old Lady in a Shoe" I was cracking up... Guess who this one is? Ok, now let's get serious here... Tee hee! Ha! I'm asking in good faith that you DO NOT SLAM my friends... Come on guys, this is my guitar... I'm the one selling it, I'm the one with the portfolio, I'm the one that wants 750k, (1.5mill closer to the election) So please come after me. I've posted my personal phone number and the only guys that had any testicles (although very small) were Richard Henry and John Marlow... I know you all dislike these guys, but Richard and I go way back and we had some times together in Blighty. John and I've spoke but once. Again, pleasant conversations between both oh them. Clive and Graham are my good friends, so please lay off. The are my 1%er's. Look the term up... Stand up dudes! So, I'm the one you want a piece of, not them... My guitar, my ass, my life, my world, my forum... 619/988/9777. Gary@guitarswest.net Shop # 951/894/3092... All smary remarks address them to me only, please. Mr.T m/o/g & Uncle Charlie keep an eye out! Don't whack them, just direct them to me.please. Man, if I say please one more time I'm going to puke!!! ����☕☕️�������� Gary Hernandez P.S., great pic of two cool guys!!!

Big Urn, you're wrong. I'm of Irish gyspsy stock mate. I've got GIANT balls and a little dick, but no complaints from Mrs H. (That's my Mrs H, not yours) Anyway, Ted Nugent and the pope had breakfast together earlier today, and although the off-putting sight of the runny egg on the pope's face killed Ted's appetite, he did manage to swallow a good few morsels. Anyway, Ted can't make the BBQ but he did say the pope was pissed. He said something about being hoodwinked into writing some letters by two LYING LIMEYS, (paraphrased, Ted's words, not the pope's) and he want's em back as was promised. Anyway I'm glad the guitar is yours and not Jim Irsay's, but you should give him a call because he buys stuff like this. So I've been led to believe.

I would let you Paul, but in the script, my wife gets the car clocked, changes the service history and sells it as new for 10 times the value.

The audience love it though.

It's lucky for me I have an Enigma machine here and can decode the messages.

It just looks bad! If it is a real Explorer, then its a shame that it gets the stink of past transgressions of its former handlers. Its provenance only points to fakery....C'mon. It just doesn't make sense that whoever owns or owned a real, authentic vintage piece of history. Did not go thru the trouble of keeping it clear of anybody that is not 100% honorable.This guitars past is surrounded by the cast of the Music Ground cesspool. Too bad! You don't lay with shit and smell like a rose. And then there is Eric's extremely damaging picture. Certainly you all have heard the term " Everyone's an asshole unless proven otherwise". This mindset filtered into the collectible markets years ago.

Agree, also posting a photo with Max holding said instrument in my mind doesn't help the "Provence" at all..... Personally, I'm hoping the guitar is real, and someone gets a wonderful piece of Gibson History but it's definitely not heading in that direction of this PR struggle....

For reference that picture's source is the sellers FaceBook account...
