1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Looks like the finish was stripped to me...
    all original?

    He notes that he's willing to trade for an Oldsmobile, or "bitches", or my favorite - "mad talent". Craziest ad i've seen in a long time. The guy kinda seems like a tool if you ask me.

    Your right, you shouldn't be able to see the grain if it's blonde right?

    I think I will offer him a T-shirt once owned by screen legend Anthony Quinn.

    The possible trades are just words to make his ad come up in searches. Included are "free stuff," "naked," "eBay," etc.
    May not even be a real ad. Possibly just mining email addresses.
    Realistically, would you list your $30K+ guitar on craigslist, for trades?

    The finish would probably be pretty translucent if it were original, wouldn't it? (55 years of wear)

    I know that on '52 reissues you can see the grain through the finish, although it isn't as transparent as the one in the ad.

    Good call. I'm going to make one of those sarcastic "RE (his title)" CL posts to call him out. If it's genuine it should provoke a response.
