    If this seller had only read Analog Man's Guide To Vintage Effects he would have known not to buy the FAKE TS-808 from that unscrupulous Korean seller. It's the SAME EXACT ONE - serial number 128352! Now he's trying to resell it on eBay. Here's the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...em=280007515140

    BUYERS BEWARE!

    Is it a re-issue ?
    What's the giveaway ?
    The color looks wrong to me for an original.

    It was at my shop several years ago when someone bought it from Fake Cat (tm) in Korea.

    I think someone stole the original TS-808 board and swapped in his TS9 reissue board. THought he would get away with it :(

    Fake Cat took it back when we told him how fake it was.

    Somewhere out there (in Korea?) is a TS9 reissue that sounds really good ;)

    If you get AnalogMan's Guide to effects pedals, you'll discover that it's written by Non-Digital Tom and that many of the effects (especially the vanishingly rare ones) are NDTs. I've got a lot of wierd stuff, but he's got all that and a bag of chips (the original Japanese version with the Germanium salt).:BEER

    Hey folks, I pulled the auction. I had no idea it was a fake and all of that - I'm just glad that you all caught it for me. I got it from Guitar Center, so I'm taking it back there today. I'm going to make sure that they quit trying to sell this as the real deal.

    Do not take this the wrong way jazzercountry, but didn't your original FS post on the emporium state that you are selling this for a friend?

    Cool, thanks!

    -Mike (or Tom? I though I was the one with all the vintage effects, or maybe we are tricking you all?)
