Another eBay scam?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171065840673...84.m1438.l2649

So guy's got this posted as a lefty '57 reissue, but the decal in the image is reversed. It's a right-handed headstock that's been flipped. Guy's got (0) feedback. Wrote him, asking him to explain, and this is what I got.

"your ridiculous man, can't you see that everything is backwards in the photo? i took it from my computer camera ****** and i just started my ebay account mr know it all"

That woman in the odd baby-doll outfit (granted I don't know much about fashion) concerns me more.

Webcams can sometimes do that to pictures but it's an easy fix (MS Paint) and there's no excuse for him being rude to you.

EDIT: Wait, he's trying to pass that off as a lefty? Is he retarded?

He does have the guitar listed as being left handed in the item info. So I'm not sure what the guy is up to.

That guy in the babydoll outfit is suspect and the house looks like a junk yard.
