Hi all

I've just picked up this new member Gearman. He says he is:

Manuel Fernandez Garcia
Jesus del Gran Poder,
137, 41002 - SEVILLA,SPAIN

With an email address of ea7zd1@gmail.com

He just happens to have the guitar I'm looking for..........................

However, his name/email address is known to Google as a scammer, and his IP address is from Nigeria.


You have been warned!

The never-been-seen-before BC Rich body in perfect order? Wow, he's not even a clever scammer :)

I won't comment on the working condition of his body :)
