    I'd bet that's a fake ad, based on how low the price is.

    But the photographs are not the same..

    May be a legit ad. I would ask whether it's a Japanese model vs. Indonesian as Seventy Seven has a cheaper line now and they cost a lot less.

    If I were local I would call the guy and go look at it.

    update: emailed the guy to see if it was a 'jt' (less expensive) model. It's the nicer Japanese model. Response was quick and well informed including a phone number. I think it's legit but everyone has to do their own diligence.

    None of mine either and I think your observations were good ones though maybe this one time it's legit. There are so many scams that buying from Reverb and especially CL has become a minefield.

    I would probably buy this guitar if it were local and it all worked out. Or if it were a JGF regular selling. Just don't see shipping a guitar in August and don't want the risk of all the unknown unknowns involved with Craigslist.

    I stand corrected. That’s a great price. Someone should jump on it.

    I’d not hesitate in buying it. Surely someone here from LA could drop in to verify it’s the real deal.

    Great MIJ guitar, also very light. I have owned one and paid more for it. This is a steal.

    I’m in communication with the seller and waiting to speak with him.

    I recently sold a single pickup, less blinged out Standard version (maple laminate vs. Spruce on the Jazz) of that guitar on the forum. Copped the vintage ES-175 vibe quite well. For $1200? Sheeeeeeeyit. Snatch it up!

    These weren't that expensive brand new, though...at least when they were available.

    1200 seems reasonable

    Okay. The guy is a Dentist. Here’s a clip of the guitar.

    I asked him what the depth of the guitar was, and he immediately responded with this photo.

    Weren’t they $2400? That’s half off, and the guitar is reportedly mint.

    This is a great way to verify whether a seller actually has the guitar in question. Good work, 2B!

    He's got a couple of other clips with the same guitar. Like I hear in John A.'s clips with the same model Jazz Hawk, I hear a nice, compressed splat in the upper-mids that sounds a little more interesting (to me) than a typical modern ES-175. I think that's a combination of the spruce top and Seventy Seven's own AL255 pickups, which are fantastic.

    Have at it, I’ve decided against it. He estimated shipping to be $150 to Seattle.

    Interesting ES-175 style split rhomboid fretboard inlays. I thought that they all had dot inlays.

    This is one of the nicest MIJ ES-175 types. A nice guitar on its own terms. I would buy this for a jazz enthusiast not hung up about the name on the headstock.

    It truly is. It’s quite a buy. You guys are talking me into buying it!

    It’s time to seal the deal. Even with the shipping costs this guitar is going to punch way above the price you’re paying.

    Thanks for the advice. I bought it. Like I needed another guitar!

    Yes, and I hadn’t seen this clip until you mentioned it. An old flame.
