Question Unknown Flying V model (Calling all V experts)

I have no idea if this is a Gibson. My guess, it's not, but I'm not sure. Can you tell?

http://reno.craigslist.org/msg/3272966329.html

Thanks.

That's what I was thinking. I still can't tell.
The tuners don't look like regular Gibson or Grovers. I just thought it might be a different model.

That;s one of the ugliest Flying V's i've ever seen.

It also looks absolutely nothing like a Gibson.

Its like a Jackson RR3 and a some Flying V knockoff didn't use a condom one day.

Yeah it's not the prettiest. Might make a decent chop-shop project though.

Even if it is a knockoff, I'd still like to know more about it. I use to have an old Hofner knockoff by Jay Turser, one of the best purchases I've made.

I guess Craigslist posts are mainly here for us to shit on.

Not making that mistake again.

Not always, just shit on the shitty trader tang guitars! Some sweet deals can be had on craigslist, especially if the failing musician rate is high in your town. Seen some people sell nice gear for stupidly cheap just to pay rent, it's a sad sight.
