True Story?

Is this a true story of the bay? 160323235387

This is a massive call in terms of price.

Re: True Story?

My gut feeling says.........bull s#*t. Zero feedback doesn't help either. Pity that DY doesn't look all that bad....

The only fire that guitar was in was the fire in his own house. $10k? That guy is dreaming BIG!

Re: True Story?

I remember a video of that bus fire that showed the black jem being pulled off the bus. I would say there is a miniscule chance that the story could be true, but what are the chances that out of all the vbk's in the world, this is that one? I'd say chances are better that this one is an attempt to re-create that incident and try to claim some $.

Re: True Story?

I seem to recall a pictoral DIY of someone setting their DY on fire.
Sounds like someone's trying to boost their sale by packaging horse$hit and putting Steve's name on it.

Re: True Story?

Indeed, the fire happened. This being that guitar is harder to decide.

On the other hand, it would sell for more without the damages. I don't think he caused the damages to scam anyone. Who knows...

Re: True Story?

Somebody bought the other guitar that this seller had for sale - that person had only one other feedback point.........Interesting.
