Dickey Betts Red Top

Does anyone want to see a FAKE Historic Gibson Dickey Betts Red Top?

I was just checking out EBAY and I like to watch for Gibson DBR guitars. I kept seeing this one pop up every so often and I see it has a “best offer” attached. So well, I’m thinking “what would the seller do if I low ball him?” But even low balling, you are talking several grand. So, I went to verify things by checking out the pictures a little more closely only to find what I am certain is a fake.

Well, they did do a great custom copy job. My point is that it is counterfeit and definitely not worth the price.

I should also state: I would not buy a counterfeit!

Check out this EBAY auction item:

Can anyone see the clues which tells you it’s a fake? I’d love to hear the comments.
