    Agreed! I wonder if he himself foolishly believes it, or if he's fishing for a fool.

    I bought my Rickenbacker 4001 from a used car salesman (literally) on Ebay, and the description was much more, um, in check...

    I saw this, too (can't stay off of Ebay for some reason ;) ). Does it look to you like the maker's name, or something, was scribbled through on the back of the headstock? ***?

    No kidding, I can't find that "flange" effect on any of my basses! They all must suck! I'm headed to the Pawn Shop, then it's right back to ebay to place my bid!

    Praying: "PLease let me win...please let me win....please let me win."

    :D :D :D :D
    I think this was the same guy who tried to sell me an AMC Gremlin in high school!!!!

    I hope that sentence was read.

    Well the body looks nice. But what the hell is that scribble on the back of the headstock?!
  11. I think it's just some beefed up Ibanez body and some random neck. The guy won't show the front of the headstock. Double you tee eff?
  12. It is a cool looking top though.

    Even if it is probably tie dyed. ;)
  13. he doesnt want to show you the headstock because it says rogue on it!
  14. Someone email him for headstock pics!
  15. word. i have a ratty ass carlo robelli stacked up somewhere in my room and thats the body of it if i ever saw one :scowl:

    My guess is made in Korea. I believe there's a good reason he doesn't show the front of the headstock. :scowl:

    Hmm... One could assume it is a Carlo Robelli, but we may never find out.
