I found a signature guitar on ebay while browsing and after I checked it out I noticed that he had removed the signature pickups of the artist and his signature from the headstock.
The rest looks legit so I asked him why he's still selling it under the artists name if it doesn't even have his pickups anymore and basically renders it a normal version of that guitar.

Do I even have a right to just call this guy out even if I have no intention of buying the guitar?

i dont get why he would buy a signature as they are overpriced and then take away its only distinctive features hmmm...........

quite often its so much more than pickups and a signature that makes a Siggy. often youll find that parts have been reworked, rrshaped and recrafted to make it theirs...

it all depends on which siggy it is though...
My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war and

I think e-Bay can't do crap to people who try to rip others off so basically it's your dumb ass that's gonna feel raped and oh-so-alone after you bought it.


Then again I don't know anything about e-Bay and I really don't care about this whole situation.

It's a guitar shop too, it's not even a single person.

You totally do have the right. If he's trying to rip off another guitarist, you're helping somebody out.

Sure you have the right, if the pickups and name are gone, its not really a signature any more

Well actually if it says in the description of the item then no, it's not a rip off at all as any buyer should be well aware of the mods.

But it feels so wrong that he's selling it under a wrong name.

It would be like me buying a Gibson Les Paul and selling it as a Slash signature, except that it has different pickups...

Well if the modifications have been listed in the item's description there's really nothing at all you can do: the description is accurate and there's no false advertising. The price may be more of a sticky issue but it's ebay, the price isn't fixed anyway.

Oh well, come to think of it, it doesn't look half bad with the other pickups and the might be just as good, plus it's only 3/5ths of the normal price.
