    This is my second response to your note. I have just had a second look at the item and note that it may be illegal in the UK to sell this guitar without a CITES Certificate . When I advertised my own 63 here in Ireland, I got a phone call completely out of the blue telling me that I was committing a criminal act by advertising a guitar which contained rosewood which was covered by the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species.

    Someone had reported the add and the department of National Parks & Wild Life. I thought that it was a joke, but they knew that I didn't have a cert because they had never issued one. Mine was number 2 on their book of forms!

    I was asked stupid questions like "can you supply a receipt from the supplier". After owning the guitar for 44 years the chances of me being able to prove when and where I bought it was laughable.

    If you reed the first post, the writer says "fairly sure it's a fake" . Not my words. And, unless I am seeing things, he also states that "more photos and details on Thursday 6th December"

    And, you quote "the seller is going there" - I'm English and haven't a clue what that refers to! enjoy the rest of your evening. Bye the way, I think it's genuine but, as I wrote in my initial observation, there are a number of issues for me. Having owned a genuine '63 which I owned for a very long time, it doesn't look correct. Furthermore, and not withstanding the forgoing, I'm entitled to my own stupid opinion

    I'm afraid you are seeing things. OP said "Fairly sure it's a fake date."


    And sellers description still says "More photos and description on Tuesday 6th December"

    :)
