Ok guys, i was looking through my local craigslist. Am I seeing things????? 500????

I really like explorers, but is their something I'm missing? Cuz this deal seems ridiculous. Any idea what kind of explorer it is? Sorry I'm not a gibson expert.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Yeah you're missing my address so you can send that to me once you buy it as a present.

I've been wanting a guitar with some passives. I'm gonna contact him and get the serial number. Apparently the case is included. Amazing deal.

Could be a faded model or some type of studio model. Obviously it's not any sort of limited edition or fancy one. Price is believable but still a good deal. Looking closely at the pictures it "appears" to be genuine but there again I would look with a discriminating eye.

Ask for pictures of the headstock, particularly the truss rod cover.

Google how to spot fake gibsons and gather information about the guitar based on that.

Yes I almost thought it said epi at first but it says Gibson.

I don't think I'll pick it up after all, I recently switched to playing in a classical position and love it, but unfortunately I think an Explorer would be impossible to play comfortably. I think I'm gonna save my money for an Ampeg VH-140C head whenever another one pops up.

You can always play standing up, but let it slide if you really don't want it.


Yea, I'm not super excited about it, other than the really low price.

You could also buy and resell it at a more sensible price


That's what I'm thinking.

What do you think it could sell for? I'm not really familiar with the used market stateside

I got my SG for $250, so it's definitely possible.

Just check out the serial numbers to be sure.

No idea. 1400 new so I'm guessing around 1000 would be a good deal.

I'm about to contact him and see if he's down for shipping it. That's a hell of a deal if it's real.

Good Luck! I'm not gonna pursue it. Wish it was a V .
