While is trying to educate guitar buyers and stop them from being ripped off by unscrupulous sellers not all guitars featured are being passed off as genuine.

Remember, someone selling a fake Gibson guitar may not know it’s a fake, therefore does not accuse any sellers of guitars featured of intentional unlawful behavior or copyright infringement, apart from the dodgy sellers trading loads of them, obviously. ;-)

A big thank you to all those who email in with guitars they have found and for letting me publish part or all of your emails and/or photos. If for some reason you do not wish your details published please contact me at and I will remove any identifying information as soon as I possibly can.
