Yes, hmm.

Imperial Vintage Guitars - are they in Texas.
No feedback
17 bids with 30mins to go and very affordable.

Of course when the rip off merchants get called out it is the rest of e-bay that picks up the cost of refunding the duped buyer through higher fees :evil:

I think that same guitar has been on Craigslist for awhile also. I believe he was asking $4500 but not sure about that.

The patent number chrome cover pickups in these era gibsons are my favorite of the vintage buckers. Really warm and consistent mid 7's output.

Necks on gibsons from 66-69 seem to be really thin and narrow and I would have a hard time buying without trying personally.

Thinlines had the 1-9/16" nut right up til about 1980 or so. That's probably what affects their popularity more than anything else (that and the trapeze tailpiece). I'm not sure when SG's went back to the wider neck, but I think it was earlier than the thinlines.

insanity

anyone that bids 2000+ pounds to someone with zero feedback is crazy...

Asimov:Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today — but the core of science fiction, its essence, the concept around which it revolves, has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
