    This popped up on LetGo. A Silver Sky listed at $1000, but in the description at bottom asking for $500 OBO.

    The seller lists it as "pola red," which I think was supposed to say Polar Red. However, that's not even an option -- Polar Blue is a color, and so is Horizon Red.

    Do you suppose it's counterfeit, or merely stolen?

    Turns out it's not a counterfeit, and it's not stolen. It's just someone who knows nothing about guitars. She seems like a sweet lady.

    She initially had it listed as a Silver Sky for $600. I figured it was a scammer, so I messaged her and advised her to sell it at a music store, where she would surely make more than on OfferUp.

    In response, she jacked the price to $1000 and uploaded two more pictures -- you can see the thumbnails in my screenshot -- which I initially overlooked when I created this thread. After she messaged me back, I finally noticed the picture of the actual guitar:

    It's an EXCEL guitar. Not sure how/where she got the idea that it was a Silver Sky.

    OBO stands for Or Best Offer -- inviting some haggling.
