Torture Listing - could it be for real? Only the Shadow Knows...

Every once in a while a listing like this turns up - part of me suspects it might be from a guy just trying to torture us. Or it could be exactly what it appears to be: A late 50's single-cut Gibson Les Paul Jr. for only $250.

Selling for Grandpa... uh huh. Hmmmmm....

Picture is so blurry it could be even be an Epiphone. But...

  1. Scama-lama ding-dong!!!

  2. yep, it's a fake posting. exact same photo and text in a mississippi craigslist a few days ago.

  3. Phishing for active email addresses.

  4. What is there to gain from phishing for active email addresses? Theres a guy who always has a listing for a tokai guitar, same pics every time, damn I wish I could find that mother$%^&er!


I appreciate your comments but please no commercial links or non guitar related conversations. Thank you. - JC


I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
