I'm being skeptical here. What do you guys think?

£250 which is roughly $400 for you American folk :P.

Not actually looking to buy it, but again, if i had the money i would :P. Not looking for the usual "should i buy this" crap and the pros and cons shenanigans. Just wanting to see what you guys think.

Even though, it's a 2004 model, it's still cheap as hell for i'm sure you guys would agree :P.

Still skeptical :P

I used to have that exact model. If it's a fake, is an excellent one. I can't tell any issues from the pictures.

No phone number and the suggestion of a paypal transaction imo typically = a scam. Not always but usually that's the case. I've gotten some good deals on the Gumtree but you have to purchase in person.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. You might miss out on the odd good deal that way, but you'll also hopefully miss out on being scammed, too.

I have a feeling that scotland is one of the worse places for scams, too. Again, that doesn't mean that that one is definitely a scam... but i'd be wary.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

The guy wears a KFC Bucket and a white mask during performances, and you're interested in the color of his pickup covers?

I just sold mine for 700 dollars, which seems ridiculously high, but that's what the guy offered me for it. I see them go for 500 used so it doesn't seem too far off, and it is quite old.
