    Considering how many people have been doing this kind of thing on Ebay, it seems like there would be a good market for an all-exhibitionist auction site.

  5. After looking at all these photos from ebay, I start to wonder if the reason I'm not a very good photographer has something to do with the fact that I'm clothed while taking shots...:D

    I don't care how cheap, or how rare, or what the finish is, or if it comes with a winning lottery ticket, I'd go buy a brand new one before I'd deal with that guy.

    I spotted the error.

    No offence, but that pic can't really be real, for a start check out the definition on the guys outline, then consider that such a reflection is being given off a surface the size of a penny.

    Also, to get the 2 different angles shown in the reflection, the headstock would have to curl more than about 30 degree.

    Another point, the image is taken form a closeup, yet the reflection shows an image taken from a distance.

    You've been had ah tells ye, had!

    YAARR!
