Are You Selling Guitars? Beware of Paypal Fraud

I  posted the warning on my lifestyle blog, but I realized that there are guitarists posting gears for sale in Facebook and in classified ads. Read these articles if you have a buyer offering to pay using Paypal.

The Rare Gibson Moderne

The Gibson Moderne was designed in the late 1950s along with the Flying V and Explorer. However, only the latter guitars made it to production. It is considered the holy grail of guitar collectors simple because there is no authenticated 50s Moderne in existence. Gibson produced a limited run of the Moderne Heritage in 1982, only 143 units allegedly. I would not call them reissues since it is the first production models though. You think there is little chance that you know someone who has a 1982 Moderne? I have a friend has two Modernes in his guitar collection: a white and a natural!
