    Sure that a look in person. The pics say a 1000 words, those words are fake. It’s someone’s attempt at a broadcaster. Nothing about that is vintage other then the “vintage” finish or whatever was used to age it. It looks cool but no where new $10k cool

    Um I ain't his boy and anyone using the term "lit" is not someone I would give $10K to. Can anyone understand this? Does anyone speak "hoodrat"?

    Yeah I’d leave that one where it is. I wouldn’t be meeting that dude anywhere

    Good eye and link. Never intended on buying, I am not accustomed to spending that much on a guitar myself, but just looking at posting here to see what you guys come up with. You guys never fail to deliver and we learn something new. Thanks

    The dots on the 12th fret would be the narrow ones if it were a real broadcaster.

    I'm guessing this clown doesn't live anywhere near Portola.

    Tell him to bring the guitar to you...and give him the address of the DC Hell's Angel's clubhouse in EPA.

    Nope. He is posting pictures of at least 2 different guitars. Definite scam.

    Saddles were the first thing that caught my eye.
    If it were legit, I dare say $10k is too low.

    Read the whole thread. There is a lot more wrong here than meets the eye.

    LOL,

    a warning sign right away for me is how he took photos.. I like photography and usually crappy photos in a selling ad makes me doubtful.

    Without even looking at it closely, he posts one photo on the ad, not even oriented the right way, and then suddenly he sends photos of the guitar as if it was taken by a Leica and by a pro photographer. LOL


    but anyway, this guy is dodgy as..

    Yeah. I’m not saying it’s not old, but an all original Broadcaster it ain’t. Lol

    Being as there are pics from at least 2 different guitars in the closeups, I'd say it's for sure not legit.

    At $10k I’m surprised it’s still for sale :thumbd:

    I tend to be dubious of claims like these. After all this time isn’t each one accounted for?

    (Maybe they’re not…it’s an honest question).
