    Saw this on my local Craigslist and had to laugh when I saw the listing.

    I dont see the racist connection... but this guy is apparently smokin' some good shit from out there in the Mnts.... Someone would be out of their mind to spend that kinda money on that,,, but then again,, aint alot of folks spending that kinda money right now....

    who knows.. he might get lucky...

    I agree. Other then the "Res Paul" thing, which was a pretty mild shot.

    But $650 for a counterfeit. Ain't happening. He'll be lucky to get $250 for it.

    Not only is the listing racist, but he's now risking jail time by selling it. While it isn't illegal to own or buy a counterfeit Gibson, it is illegal to sell one, even if it's stated up front that it's not genuine. And yeah, that price is just plain stupid.

    So he spent over $650 on that piece of counterfeit crap? LOL. Could have bought a real Gibson for that kind of money.

    I keep having flashbacks to Cartman and Butters holding hostages at the P.F. Changs to ward off the Chinese invasion!!
