Stay Classy Clyde :3zone

Based on what I have seen from the main list of protagonists(antagonists?) in this thread, I'd say Clive Brown has shown quite a restrained sense of decorum. Especially when taking into consideration the fairly open attacks on his integrity, whether well founded or not.
But you feel free to keep wrestling the pig if you're enjoying it. I will remain on the outside trying to peek in.

Maybe start with your real name.

Better still, call Hernia.......he doesn't know who you are either.

Lift your skirt and show some leg.


Since Sean (sonicburst) is in So Cal, I bet he and BH are acquaintances at least.

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

Fake:

as in: the "antique" was a fake: forgery, counterfeit, copy, pirate(d) copy, sham, fraud, hoax, imitation, mock-up, dummy, reproduction; informal phony, rip-off, knockoff, dupe.

Hi Joe,
Wrong again! I have never built a Les Paul (I presume you are talking about a Standard) Finished a few but never built one, don’t like ‘em. Whoever told you that lied! Give me the name and I will contact them. I have never built any guitar to deceive anyone, nor have I ever sold one to deceive. What other people do with guitars I have restored/finished is out of my control that is why they carry my stamp hopefully to protect future buyers. I have seen cases where the stamp has been removed, again out of my control.

Regarding the 1960 Gibson Explorer I have said before on these pages if you care to read them.
I have known the guitar for 10 years, was there when it was bought in San Rafael, have had it apart various times, compared it to some famous Explorers (you’ve probably played ‘em) and can find nothing wrong with it. If you can find something wrong with it please tell me, let your expertise shine!

When the guitar was at Gruhn’s it was Gruhn that put the price on it, $50k was going to him, he has changed his mind 3 times about the guitar, he also admitted he doesn’t know much about electric guitars as he prefers acoustics and mandolins on which I understand he is knowledgable. He brings people in to check electrics, some of these guys aren’t very good, some are.
I have paperwork from Gruhn from 2009 when he saw a guitar claiming to be this one, it wasn’t, I also have paperwork from him stating that the guitar he did see in 2009 was a copy of this guitar!

I don’t own the Explorer and I am not pulling any scam with it, you seem to like calling me names, ie con man, faker. You know people who have known me for a long time, ask any of them if I am a con man or faker.

You claim to be a Bluesman.....Give me a break!.... Who’s the con man now....YOU!
The only POS here is You and your behaviour.....a bit childish isn’t it?
You see, I can resort to name calling too but I don’t resort to slander!

I believe the 1960 Explorer to be original, that is my opinion! No-one is asking you to buy it, you don’t even have to look at it. If you (I know you won’t) or anyone else asks me to check out a guitar I always give them a truthful answer, sometimes people don’t like it.

I don’t know you Joe, probably don’t want to but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt because I think you have had some bad info about me....(I recognise a few of your Marshall’s though!)
Best Regards,


Clive

Clive...please stop embarrassing yourself pretending to know what I am holding. I own 6 vintage Marshall amps none of which you have seen or will ever see.

Good luck with the Heist..
Maybe one day they will make a movie about the caper.
"Lock Stock and One Fake Explorer. "

The brazenness of this whole thing is astounding.

Just as an aside, I'm thinking of coming down to Arlington in Oct. Are you guys this rough and tumble in person? Should I pack a cup?

Oh! Also HOLY CRAP! A new BCC record? JBLPplayer? This is accurate??

Max is not "my mate" and I think you worded it that way to start some shit.

That said, replicas are fakes. As are any guitars that carry the Gibson name, not made by Gibson.
And I have seen several people in this thread having owned and/or offered for sale replicas. They are fakes.

I think this is another attempt [as above] to dodge my question.
Word games to dodge and divert, and attack certain people for possibly doing what others [here, in this thread] have done.
I find the vast majority of this thread very distasteful and am surprised it isn't locked and purged.
A sad time for the LPF indeed.

:foghornDo you crow at sunrise?



Do you sell replicas/fakes?
You have advertised them.

And I do not appreciate your personal attack. Perhaps a moderator will do something about this crap? :fu
