I think this looks like a Chibson. It has the smaller diamond inlay as a starting point. What do you's think???

He's admitting in the ad that it's a replica, so either a Chibson or someone else knocked off a Gibson. $785 was bid by one person on it, who I'm assuming read his disclaimer and knows what they are buying. That's a bit high, but if the person bidding doesn't do their own work it wouldn't be a bad deal - assuming the guitar has been upgraded, frets leveled and dressed and so forth.
The two most important things to remember in life: "The only time it's acceptable to work with amateurs is if you are making porn." "If you want to work with clowns, join a circus."

That guitar screams CHIBSON! I would be surprised if the seller doesn't know exactly what he is selling. Trying to make a quick $500 profit. Noticed auction was canceled, guess someone called him on it.

Haha, it says: This listing was ended by the seller because the item was lost or broken.

Guess someone called him out on it for sure.
