    What do you guys think about this? I was looking for used squier 51 guitars and came across this picture from their listing on guitar center used through Bridgeton, Missouri which is really close to me. I usually hate dealing with these ass clowns in there, they are rude and offer little to nothing for used gear, I usually go to Fairview Heights Guitar Center instead.

    Here is the listing for the guitar you have to look at the back picture of the guitar and make sure you look really good at the reflection (best seen on clicking the picture and looking on a computer screen)...

    Here is the picture in case they take it down...

    Zoom in on the finish. There are reflections of people giving everyone who looks at it the bird.

    It doesn’t surprise me. I think it’s unprofessional. But I can’t complain too loudly because in my younger years I might have done something similar as a joke if I didn’t think I would get caught.

    Ah, I see it now (though it took a lot of brightening and zooming in). Meh. One of those things if you get away with it might eventually make for a funny story, but if you get caught and fired for it, well, that's the chance you took.

    Could just be the manager hinting to the salesman he didn't make budget again this week so the exchange of sexual favours will be required to keep his job.:)

    Much like Blockbuster employees in the mid to late 90's... Job security is not a realistic possibility, I'm guessing the prankster realizes this.

    All hand signals aside, I own the sister to that black Squier '51, and I must say I love it.

    Probably my first and last Squier, but I'm really pleased with how versatile it is.

    How do you like your Peavey Vypyr? I’ve had mine for a few years now and love it.

    Same here, although probably just as well to be honest.

    If you use Firefox you can install CyberGhost add-on VPN, switch to USA and view these pages that are conforming to GDPR.
    I did and even on a large screen cannot see anything in the reflection?

    I noticed that, it's the opposite hand and the picture is blurry enough that he could be holding the real thing. The bottom 3 fingers grab tightly, not like your pic.

    I've had only good experiences at the Bridgeston store. The sales staff is professional there and helpful with me and how I've seen them interact with others. They know be by name when I walk in. I know most of them by name too. I've been pleased with the trades I've done with them too.

    The Crestwood store is another story. I'll never go back to that store. Every interaction I've had and trade deal has been a failure.

    As far as the guitar in the picture, did Bridgestone take it in? Or was it bought at a different store on line by someone in St. Louis and then returned to the Bridgeston store.
