"I guess they bought up any copy that came on the market at the asking price. I guess the price didn't really matter considering what it was about to be worth."

"Hi Ballroom, I have been out all day - just got in - many images to catch up on but I also just saw this fuzziness and also some curvy or wavy improper cuts. It an seems incredibly bold move this "technique", but then it would be."

"If you look closely at the pick guard posted by Alexander, there appear to be rough edges from the paper being trimmed."

"These are looking like they may be book pages adhered to pickguards but sold to dealers who may not know that's what they are."

"Perhaps Strawberry Walrus would be willing to tell us when the book was sold. The LOA is dated 7/25/16. The book may have been sold after that date."

"Fab432, no evidence yet that these people are duplicating or multiplying items at all. Yet to be determined whether they are just cutting these signed pages and physically affixing the original signature to pickguards. That latest one is another…"

"Well well well. This has certainly been an eye opener for me. I would never have guessed that these scanners trace a genuine signature onto multiple items. It's a big business and it's fraud. I wonder how hard it would be to take it to the…"

"Steve C. sent me an image of "signed" guitar from Pristine Auctions and I was able to match the signature to one from a copy of "High in the Clouds." Well, I just found a second example from the same auction house. Apparently…"

"Hiddens are effective, but less and less so. Most legends I can think of are aware of them as of about a decade ago. Sometimes they rip them apart when you present the mat. Then they snap the pickguard in half and throw it at you while screaming in…"
