    This just showed up on Craigslist today. I'm not in the market for another 7 string at the moment but wanted to spread the word about this one. The price seems ridiculously low. I'm wondering if this is a fake or if the seller is just unaware of Doug's instruments. :scratch: Have a look and maybe give this one
    a new home?

    Probably just one of the chinese made fakes that have been circulating Alibaba, atleast the guy didn't try to sell it for the price of the real deal. Someone I know got tricked like that with a fake Mayones, luckily I've played the real deal and was able to let him know it was a fake.
