    It'll be interesting to see what the reserve is set at. Probably $249,999.99

      I wonder if the guy actually sold it to the pawn shop. I wouldn't put it past them to fake the sale on tv to get free national advertising for it, and in return for doing that Rick would take a cut of the sale.

          No, sane people that know the value of their stuff fly across country to get screwed all the time man. Except for when their asked to do it and get a serious pay check out of it and a nice vacation in Las Vegas for free. Of coarse something is up its tv, wow.

              That was cool, I love Dave Attel.

              I thought I saw a Pawn Stars where he said he doesn't deal Nazi stuff

                I worked in the pawn business for a few years in Reno and it was interesting to say the least. The profit margins are insane. Definitely a lot of fun though

                  There is one Les Paul/Mary Ford album cover where Les has a Goldtop, and Mary has an SG Custom in white, but the truss rod cover reads "Mary Ford Model".

                      I just watched that episode the other night. Very nice guitar indeed. I like when the guitar shop dude played it and started going off and Rick was like, "so it works?"

                            Fake show is fake.

                            I'm amazed they don't have to show a disclaimer or something to avoid charges of fraud.

                            It's one thing to do a reality show that's really "improvisational theater" for entertainment....but the minute you start selling stuff to the public that's on the show, it becomes a commercial and false advertising laws should come into play.

                            I know for a fact that they often will have a fake actor bring in a guitar from another store and a fake expert will "discover" problems with the sale or "discover" the fantastic treasure before them and that it's all staged.

                            There's a thread about a "50's Les Paul" episode where the "expert" points out that it's a Norlin Les Paul. The guy bringing it in AND the expert both work for Cowtown guitars. One is a tech and the other an employee. The exact same guitar is listed on their website for sale as a 70's Les Paul.

                            Another episode shows some vinatge Coke machine that's "restored" but in reality it's an entirely different machine and both are property of the restoration place.

                            What a scam. This show is a commercial for a working place of buisiness and fraud is being committed on the public in how it represents itself.

                              Your a total idiot. Why do people post idiotic threads and claim they "know" somethings fake? If I had a nickel ........ The show is real the sales are real and no "fraud" is being committed. Some people.

                            these shows are re-enactments.
                            the world is one big fist fight.
