EBAY; U-2 Signed Guitar by all 4 ? CSNY all 4 ? DYLAN signed guitars? Opinion?

Here are 3 ebay listings for what appears to be 3 different guitars -

1)U-2 signed  http://www.ebay.com/itm/GUITAR-SIGNED-BY-BONO-EDGE-ADAM-CLAYTON-LAR...

2)CSNY acoustic    :http://www.ebay.com/itm/GUITAR-SIGNED-BY-CROSBY-STILLS-NASH-AND-YOU...


3)Bob DYlan 1    http://www.ebay.com/itm/BOB-DYLAN-SIGNED-ACOUSTIC-GUITAR-W-PROOF-AN...


bob Dylan 2  --this one--the guy wants over 8K..and has ZERO info on when and where signed or any COA or PSA identifcation--someone asking 8,000 for a guitar should give information upfront on how the guitar was acquired...he only offers information on the model of the guitar. I emailed and he refused to respond.



Bob DYlan 3--this one--he claims was signed backstage on a specific dae in Hyde park...but never saw it signed or knows the name f the head of the security. 


All of these listings have NO proof photos, no dates (except the last Dylan)  when signed, no names of the person who sold it, no information on backing the items up with PSA or other authenticators.  Th Dylan guitars are particularly interesting as all signatures look nothing like the other ones.  Since I have been told "I dont know Dylan" I am asking if anyone thinks ANY of these 4 guitars is real. My opinion is NONE of these 4 are real...what do others here think?

Since he just released 60 signed CD's of TEMPEST with his real autograph shown (Sorry I could not camp out 4 days to try and obtain one of the 15 (ONLY) signed copies being sent to NYC  I am curious on these 4 items.....My personal experience on U-2 left me WITHOUT any autographs from 2 members/. BONO signs...but the EDGE and LARRY (or ADAM) (one of them) is nearly impossible on a guitar. ..


On CSNY signing BODIES of guitars for Crosby is im;possible. and That graham Nas h  has some strange breaks in the graph I have never seen and Stephen Stills graphs dont match my MANY in persons.

So are all these BAD?>

 i was wrong..he doesnt want 8K for the Dylan..he wants over 9K lol... Fuylly signed U-2  guitars that do not go to specific charities with LOA are very rare signed o n the body.  . I have one on a pickguard by u-2  but NOT on the body of a guitar. Bono called the police last time we waited outside a restaurant--all lined up with guitars---and he wanted nothing to do with collectors...souldnt even sign albums that day. but in general U-2 by all 4 are imposisble on guitars the EDGE just isnt doing it.  .  I was a bit curious on the Dylan o nthe redburst guitar...kinda looks the best of all the forgeries lol

The U2 autographs are poor forgeries.  Not even close.

I just have to say that I don't believe that any of these are genuine. I have seen a lot of autographs from these artists, but none like these.

Save the money and good luck finding a genuine guitar!

LOL... Ebay actually allowed this junk to sell... I would say some buyer got ripped off of $220 for the U2 guitar, but if its "signed" by all 4 and its not well over $1,000, then you just wasted your money. Edge isnt even the hard one.. Larry and Adam just dont do it anymore on anything!!! A Bob Dylan guitar for $500!!!??? Great deal if ya dont mind the fake autograph on it!

LEX--ebay has NO autograph Police..anyone can TRY and sell anything..BUYER BEWARE....whomever bought this..probably was buying it as a present for Christmas for someone and thinks they got a bargain....No LARRY and ADAM are total ZERO"s on graphs..impossible.  Theres currently a 9000.00 Dylan guitar on ebay that is FAKE...theres another with a backstage pass aattached claiming the opening band had him sign it...only one problem---BOB said "I never meet the opening bands they play I dont even hear them" on his radio show lol he wants 5900 for that "real" DYLAN with no PSA/PASS/JSA or photo proof.....stay away from EBAY guitars....unless you want someone NOT a top 20 act...you want a Willie nelson guitar yo ucan buy one or a BB KING (and there are FAKES there too) but if you want a REAL U-2, WHO, LED ZEPP , etc guitar be prepared to spend serious money.

Ebay has gotten better about rooting out fakes, but thats mostly because at one point it couldnt have gotten much worse!!! It used to be like the wild wild west...

Comment by David K on December 15, 2012 at 7:08am

But they allow anyone to list anything without ANY info to back it up..a good Policy would be ANY of the following needs to accompany the item being sold to have it listed a)A Letter or opinion from one of the top 5 authenticators 2)photo proof of when item was signed 3)A statement of where and when item was signed--date-;location--event  4)A money back guarantee without NEEDING to pay for an opinion within 30 days..and a REFUND of authenticator opinion paid fee after 30 days if item is dtermined "probably not authentic". So many do not even list info on the items they well--lots of history on thr artist and no info on where the aurtgraph came from . the yshould disallow ESTATE SALE items that have no ADDITIONAL LOA from an authenticator.  Weed all the junk out..there are no great Estate sales weekly with tons of rare expensive autographs..where are these "estates" LOL

Gotta wonder how much Ebay makes off the sale of fake autographs.  It has to be a ton . . .
