    Guy trying to peddle an OLP on ebay as an Axis played by EVH

    Look at this chump trying to push an OLP, listed as an Axis for $1,000 (I know I've got this identical OLP photoflame Quilt-top, this ain't no Axis!). Write this ripoff a nasty letter and let him know what you think about him trying to rip off us VH guitar players...

    He may have actually played it, but without actually owning it, who fuckin' cares???

    Hell, when the Peavey rep came here with an Ivory Wolfie Std, I played it and I looked at the inspection sheet and the rep said that Eddie himself set it up... So, I played the same guitar Eddie played... I should sell my hands on ebay because they touched the same guitar Eddie touched...

    if the listing was genuine, he would've had a snapshot of either eddie holding the guitar or playing it, or one of ed and the seller posing in the store... chances are worse than slim to none as you're not going to get evh posing with a guitar that's not from a sponsor... a bogus story waiting for a sucker to bite...

    someone should email the buyer and say "congratulations, you just bought a $200 guitar for a grand."

    I tried to report that auction to eBay, but for some reason it wouldn't allow me to submit it when I went with the "misleading lanugage" option.

    Early on, 'someone' placed a bid on the opening price which was $1000. One has to believe that the bid was planted by the seller through a different account, etc., just to make others believe the guitar was 'worthy' of that type of $$, and obviously at least one other person in this world bought it (literally).

    And though I hate seeing a rip-off seller get big money, at some point you just have to let the idiot buyer learn a hard lesson. If you're spending a lot of money on something, do your research. It doesn't get a whole lot more simple than that.

    For some reason, I'm picturing the buyer purchasing a glass museum style display case and remodelling a section of his home with red velvet rope partitions and flood lights to display this $150 POS.

    It says right in the listing it's an OLP...
    Where does it say anywhere that it's an Axis?? Unless it has been changed since he listed it. Anyone who is stupid enough to buy a guitar on ebay because some dick "says" Eddie Van Halen played it deserves to lose their money.

    It was changed. It was originally listed as an "Axis," and "OLP" was nowhere to be found in the description.
