Hmm.
At least it's a one of a kind...the first 814 I've seen with Sapele back and sides. And lets not talk about the cover up; did he get his 8 year old to change the label?
that is a waste of listing fees IMO. At least it is a buy it now with a ridiculous price, even the completely naive are safe from getting ripped off.

It's possible this seller was duped into buying this guitar as an 814. Hopefully they won't try to dupe someone else.

Get a grip guys. Seems as if the seller was betrayed himself, when he purchased the guitar. There is nothing wrong with the other items in his shop.

See it like this: here are a lot of experts in Taylor guitars and even some of us sometimes find it difficult to identify a particular Taylor. What difficulties must someone have who actually isn´t in Taylor guitars?

The company I´m working at is selling acoustic guitars everyday but the guy running the department has no idea, what makes a Martin, a Taylor or any other steelstring genuine. On the other hand: ask him the same question about a Ramirez, Carillo, Burquet or Bernabe. You would be surprised...

Report the guitar to eBay, to prevent people from bidding on the guitar and inform the seller, that the guitar isn´t what it seems to be and where he can verify the information on the guitar.

And done by many of us. Neither the seller nor eBay has done a thing. Says a lot about both.

I wrote the seller and said that he probably wouldn't want to mess up a 99.2% positive rating after 10,800 sales by trying to sell this Taylor that clearly wasn't what its altered label purported it to be.

I, too, sent the seller an email describing the flaws in his 'description', and pointing him to the true description in the Taylor archives.
No response at all from the seller which prompted me to put him on my 'unsavory' list.

It would seem to me that for a guy that deals in guitars at this price level it would behoove him to find out what the stuff that he buys is worth before he buys it. I do know that if I were going to shell out that kind of money I would know what I was buying. Even if I didn't know anything else about guitars the obvious damage to and re-work of the lable would make me wary. He had to know that this was bogus.
