    That's a bunch of CRAP - the Harrison estate still has it...

    This has been pretty well discredited on a bunch of Beatle boards. Some pretty funny comments over at BeatGearCavern about this.

    Heck, if anyone can claim any ordinary L-1 is Robert Johnson's and put it up for sale for $6 Million, you're getting a bargain at $850K!

    This is a quote from John Hall, the CEO of Rickenbacker, on the Rickenbacker Forum:

    "There seems to be much controversy and misinformation about this guitar. Apparently what's being offered for sale and what's pictured are quite different instruments.

    As near as I can ferret out, the guitar being offered is represented as George's second twelve-stringer, the one that was presented to him at a press conference in Minneapolis.

    There's several problems with this.

    First, no one knows the exact serial number of the original guitar. However, through our records were able to narrow the list down to only five possible numbers based upon shipments up to the date of the presentation. As it happens, once in the past we were once given a serial number of a guitar which had surfaced and it was one of the five (which may or may not be this particular one).

    Second, there is a fairly well known admission of guilt in the theft of George's guitar which further corroborates that there might be some issues of ownership, both legal and ethical.

    Anyone purchasing a guitar like this would certainly want to be assured of the provenance of the instrument and a clear title, things that might be tough to absolutely nail down under the circumstances."

    Ever time I see something like this from him, I think he has reached his limit, yet he still manages to out-sleeze himself on a regular basis.

    I'm no longer surprised.

    If they do...and after they tell him that he's a moron, please also inform him that the girls on his website are skanks (no wait, MAJOR skanks) and in no way, shape or form, aid in the selling of the guitars that they are holding.
