Hummingbird Gibson guitar

I saw a great guitar on the net that is for sale at 300$, a Hummingbird Gibson guitar that comes with a hard case

I was wondering if you had any comments on that guitar? The girl who is selling it told me that she bought it 550$ without tax

For more information:

For now, I own a Takamine accoustic guitar that I bought 200$.. And the next guitar I wanted to buy was a 12 strings... But that Hummingbird Gibson looks great...

What do you think? Should I buy that Gibson or wait until I have the cash to buy a great 12 string? ...

for $300?
Are you sure it's a Gibson hummingbird, and not an Epiphone hummingbird that she's selling?

Even though Gibson owns Epiphone, they're not the same thing.

If it's really a Gibson, RUN and get it NOW! Heck, buy it for me if you don't want it for yourself.

But, as Kent suggests, it seems unlikely ...

If it's a true Gibson Hummingbird at that price, it's likely stolen Most Hummingbirds go for about $2500 new.

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

humm, I read to fast

In the title, she wrote: Hummingbird Gibson

But in the text, she wrote: Gibson Epiphone, so yes it was not a real Hummingbird, even if the guitar looked exactly the same!

And by the way, she sold it so... I'm gonna wait and probably buy a 12 string like I was thinking
