Who is this guy trying to fool?

Post by blackstrat on Wed Jul 18, 2012 8:27 am

Talk about someone trying to scam with a misleading title and description! Check this out!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190704448543#ht_14160wt_1331

The tuners aren't correct, it doesn't have the serial# on the neckplate starting with JV! It has the serial# on the headstock and other discrepancies that I'm sure people here know about. It is just a nice looking E series MIJ squier, they are nice guitars but I have bought them for $300 and under. And the seller with his misleading title and description is trying to fool someone. The JV squiers are a Whole different animal. $839.00 for a quite easy to find mij Squier. It pisses me off!! Mad

That is a bit misleading.

Nice guitars only let down by ceramic bar magnet pickups.

Sold 2 of those recenly for around the £300 mark, that's about their worth.

I sent him a message, and I knew it would probably be a waste of time, but I couldn't let it go. He replied about his expertise and that the guitar was almost identical to the real thing, and a Bargain at the price listed.

I am going to take the high road and let it go. I very much doubt it will sale at that price.

And the seller with his misleading title and description is trying to fool someone. The JV squiers are a Whole different animal.

And over at This forum at 21frets they talk about listings like these in this way
Ya! They all look alike!

Nothing like playing dumb!

Maybe we should create this list after all!

What a dumb ass!

Here
are his exact words: Q: Good afternoon, A bit of info you might find of
interest about Korean Squiers. They weren't made in Korea until the
later 1980's. You are correct that Fender Squier production began 1982,
but only the Japanese... Continue reading
A: The funny thing is that this guitar looks exactly like a Japanese Strat from the same era. Thanks!

And he posted this answer on ebay! Like this will help his credibility!

Buyer beware!

Now this add isn't there anymore, even the pictures disapeared but the description's still there!
But at least it wasn't as high priced!
