Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

I am no expert but I think it's pretty legit.  Buying it would depend on why you want it.  If it is simply for the signature then I'd look for something with more detailed proof of its authenticity.  If it is for the combination of guitar plus autograph then I'd go for it.  However, one thing I have run into in the past is preferring not to have a signature on any guitar I plan on using.  Over the years I have had the rare opportunity to own many guitars with artist's autographs.  It always bothered me when trying to play the guitar because I did not want to remove the signature.  Eventually, I got rid of all of them and chose to only own guitars I didn't have to worry about where I put my arm or where NOT to wipe when cleaning it.  If it's going on your wall...go for it.

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

The signature looks legit, that's how he used to sign back then. Personally I wouldn't want a signature on the body of any guitar I own, all my guitars get played regularly.

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

Kicking up a past Thread with a new / unrelated post ... the Title fits with an item I saw on eBay yesterday ...

Bloodline Guitar Pick (Tortoise color) ...  Bloodline is in a standard looking font ... not the Bloodline logo as on the CD and that other picks for sale have had ... and ... has "He Died For You" printed on the Pick as well.

What say the Senior class members (or other well informed) ... Is there a Bloodline connection to that phrase?

(I googled the other bands The Bloodline and Bloodline .. a quick search didn't show a connection to that phrase song title wise ... maybe a lyric phrase?)

I see the seller was questioned if it was Joe B's Bloodline (shown down at the bottom of the listing) ... seller staying firm that it is ... has had the pick since 2005 ( smile ).  That's what prompted me to post ... forget the selling $ ... if it's not Joe B Bloodline connected as described ... the listing should be corrected.

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

i didn't think so either, I sent the seller a link to stuff from one of the many other bands called Bloodline that it is more likely from. Haven't heard back...i wonder who 'sold' it to this guy.....

I wasn't on the prowl for it ... esp at that price! big_smile ... I was posting it up mainly as a BonaHistory lesson for myself ... since I never saw one like it ... and didn't know of any connection to the phrase on the Pick and Joe's Bloodline.

That said ... what kinda made me mad ... and also post ... the Seller has 100 Feedback, member since '03 ... and maybe he truly believes it is from Joe's Bloodline ... but when you are asked about your listing ... as he/she was ... your stance to show proof is "I've own it since 2005"?.  Oh, ok ... my bad.  I think for $225 ... he/she would double check their description claims and offer up something more substantial.  (Would u risk ur longtime eBay rep on making back $ if u indeed got took on the item?)

I realize Buyer Beware always rules ...  and I'm sure most who are after such items are pretty savy ... and such a high ask $ makes them more so ... as does I'm sure his/her reply when asked about the Joe connection.

(Guessing / hoping not a member here ... but even if ... hope they understand the questioning.)

(Also posted to keep the Forum active!! smile ... and where better to flush this thing out?!! smile)

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

Even if it was legit, with documentation, I don't think its worth the asking price. Just my opinion.

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

FWIW, I haven't see them for a while, i used to have trouble with one seller - or it was two different sellers but was really the same co. they sell a ton of cds so i just think they don't keep track as well, but anyway they would advertise So Its Like That but use the public info from the SILT with the ANDY Live dvd which was a limited edition. they refunded me the time i bought one and only got the single cd edition but they refused to update their ad.

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

Since this thread has already gone off on a bit of a tangent....

The discussion prompted me to just search "bonamassa" on eBay, and I came up with this gem. A recording featuring Joe that I don't own:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/301983524276

Bozo the clown? It't on amazon too, but unfortunately there's no audio preview. So I can't tell if it's a must have or not. :-)

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

well i guess its a matter of what makes it must have to you. for me it is....but there is only one song with Joe, its a children's cd....here is a short clip of the song
http://www.allmusic.com/album/get-down- … 0000693662
i absolutely love it, and from the same label, Music For Little People, Joe is on another song on the cd A TRex Named Sue and its Sue's Chicago Blues http://www.allmusic.com/album/a-t-rex-n … 0000352096
on the Bozo cd, i have one where they spelled his name wrong. that i feel is very collectible but i would probably not be able to get 5 sheckles for it

the fact that these are projects where he worked with Mike Himelstein who also cowrote Asking Around for You, Takin the Hit.... make them more 'must have'
as are the Rumble Bees cds http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/rumblebees2

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

hey i got a hold of Berry O. Jr. and he said i could quote him to the ebay seller and i'll copy it here
"No this is Not a BLOODLINE pic...
they are wrong!!! this might be from the metal band from Germany of the same name..
a real bloodline pic is yellow, made by Dunlop and only says Bloodline...
each band member had their own with name but NO bloodline... the bloodline pic was Yellow and only said Bloodline"

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

Nice!! Time to take down Mr. "I know it's legit becasue I've had it since 2005!"

Nice work ... good luck ... and thank u. smile

Re: Nice find on Ebay if it is legit:

Well, after some not so friendly back and forth with the seller, where I repeatedly pointed out that a claim of authenticity was being made with zero evidence, the following has been added to the listing:

PLEASE NOTE:  As there is no C.O.A for this item, which is not unusual, and it was

        not handed to me personally by Joe Bonamassa himself, obviously I cannot verify that this is

        absolutely from his band BLOODLINE ~ HOWEVER, based on my many years of buying, collecting,

        and selling music memorabilia, and considering the item itself and the info provided to me from

        the trusted collector I acquired this from, and the extensive research I have done, to the best

        of my knowledge, and in my opinion, this is indeed a Joe Bonamassa BLOODLINE guitar pick.
