OMG is this a genuine JS4 Rainbow for sale?

It's on **** - 200155429227

Pickups have different bobbins... but if it is real, they are asking a mint for it!!!

Rich - I take it you WON'T be bidding as that has gotta be about $8,000!!!

Re: OMG is this a genuine JS4 Rainbow for sale?

....and that "scratch" below the trem used to be a big smashed in ding that's obviosly been filled, as well as the edges of the headstock were very rough so it's either been redone or the neck has been swapped, as well as the pickups and knobs aren't original. It's like 1/2 a Rainbow for all the money.

Is that how much you'd price a mint one Rich?

Who knows these days. The last was fairly mint, but also stolen. Insure it for big money because you'll have a very hard time replacing it.

Not a "big" ding - just a ding - and you have to know it's there to see it or to be at the right light angle. Neck is ALL original. Please no supposition on a guitar you don't hold.

No offense Jeapson but, I think your price is a tad unrealistic.

There are people willing to buy a DNA for Ģ4000 (DNA No. 74 went for that on evilbay UK) whereas it is part of a 300 pieces run...

So I don't think my price for one which is part of a handful and ultra rare 10 pieces was unrealistic...

Just my opinion
