Saw this ad yesterday in my local CL

1958 Original Fender Jazzmaster Guitar Orig. Tweed HSC $1800





I looked for the ad tonite and found this instead

SCAM--->1958 Original Fender Jazzmaster Guitar Orig. Tweed HSC - - $1 (SCAMVILLE)


This ad is a scam, I googled the seller's email address and it comes up with a few hits with him giving people the same line of crap he tried to give me. Please flag this ad so it'll be removed.

Location: SCAMVILLE
it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests

Wow. That is almost identical to one of the color combos I was considering for my Jazzmaster build

Wow,where did you get the photo above?It looks like the same guitar as the ad. The seller(scammer?) described it as '58 Jazzmaster with a body refinished in LPB. He said the pick-guard and whammy bar were replacements and the serial number on the neck plate was from the 1970's.

I believe 58/59 had a different lower control route

CL can be a scary place. My neighbor was robbed, beaten & carjacked meeting someone

Last week, some kid put some puppy on CL... when people came to the door, he chased them bats & clubs and beat em, funny part was after he attack a lady, he called her back and apologized, she then came back for another beating

I went to the offset forum. The guy who built this guitar(below) said it is not the Jazzmaster that was on Craigs list.

Really? I'd pay that much for a refinished '58 Jazzmaster.

dude says he has a puppy, you ring door bell, dude chases you down and attacks you with a bat, you get away *phone rings* dude says "I'm sorry, really... come get the puppy", you ring door bell ***repeat whole process over***

the story is sad, until she goes back for the second time without the cops





I'd pay $1800

It's funny as in "off", "odd", etc. As in, "This milk has gone funny."

exactly. the guy doesn't have the guitar. he just used some pictures he got from somewhere on the net to try to scam someone out of some cash.

not really, just assuming this seller has to have worked out something more complicated and devious than the usual "meet me in a public place and give me a bunch of money and I promise I'll call and give you yur guitar later/ wire me money and I'll call you up and give you the guitar later." That shit's so old, Grandmas don't even fall for it.
