Hey guys..ran across this while searching for YouTube guitar lessons...pretty neat IMO
Seeing Joe and Phil walk in the store, and Phil validating his own guitar was surreal. Very cool clip.
The James Bond theme guitar? Brought in to a pawn shop by the gentleman who played it on the James Bond theme?
I was saying "Walk away, Vic Flick!!! Hold out for $70,000" But he seemed quite alright with what he got.
Shouldn't of upgraded the bridge pickup ;-)
Rigged "reality" show.
Vic did just fine on the guitar, Rick on the other hand only received 25,000 for it when he sold it at Juliens in 2014
Fakey McFakerson - I thought it was well known that they hired "customers" to bring in fancy items so the show would be worth watching.
of course it is...but i tune in for the items...cool to learn about stuff...if anything on tv was 100% real...it be boring and no one would watch
I get the same impression, especially since they get close to the asking price on those high-dollar items in a very speculative market.
Their valuations on musical instruments is much better than Antiques Roadshow.
Right. Next you're going to say wrestling is fake.
"You never know what's going to come through that door... I just happen to have all these experts on speed dial that can show up to verify anything while the customer waits around."
They all are.
Scripted shows(as opposed to "reality shows") are just honest about it and give the script writers credit.
The show may be faked, but the guitars are real.
You’re either desperate or a stupid s.o.b if you sell a guitar to a pawnshop
Yes I’ve done it, both of those things involved
On average you’ll get 25% of the total value ,it’s not rocket scientist they are resellers and need to make a profit
That’s why it’s definitely fake when the seller walks away, they have no intention of selling something to a pawnshop, trogly almost got on once with the Steve Howe the les Paul
I really liked the now sadly gone 'old man' he was a voice of reason and experience, the other two come off as money grabbers and chumlee apparently earns more for the show than the others!
I agree, but that's true any time you sell to a shop (not just pawn shops), as opposed directly to an end user.
My understanding is that the selling and buying isn't always real. Guitars brought on that are never intended to be sold, "experts" who already own the guitar some third party brings in, all sorts of shenanigans. Just for show. I'd have to reread the details... been a while. But it was not what they presented.
How did they rig it so an idiot like Chumlee is the big winner?
It's entertainment people, but sometimes educational too.
That applies to 100% of what you see on tv! "News" included!
