    I think the the offering is as accurate as his feeble mind allows. The price is certainly a typo.

    I sent the seller a message informing him that it is not a Gibson. He replied: "Thanks, you're so knowledgeable"... which must have been sarcasm because he has not changed the description. I'll give him maybe another day before I report the listing.

    I'll just leave this here:

    "Condition: Good (Used)"

    Holy crap I saw this about two months ago being sold for much less. I was intrigued until I looked closer.

    Common on many cheaper Asian guitars from the '70s-80s, but this appears to be a type that was posted on here once and after much research, turned out to be Phillipino or Taiwanese, I believe. No truss rod at all, so basically firewood.

    It was one of the first things I saw that really screamed "wrong" to me. I'm becoming a bit of a wiring geek apparently.
    So they're the 70's version of Alphas then?

    Kind of, although Alphas would probably be an upgrade.

    Update: this pool cue atrocity has been removed from reverb. Hopefully no one got suckered.

    Almost $300 for either a guitar that can't be used or a pool stick that can't be used...

    Sadly, someone out there will be dumb enough.

    The "good" news, is that it's been listed for five months, and nobody's bit yet.

    I reported it... checked the link a day or two later, it wasn't there.

    A few more days later, now it's back.

    Maybe the folks at Reverb.com know something the collective here doesn't? :facepalm:
