MCG: Did False Signatures & Cheap Guitar Net $2400?

025 MCG FansNeedToBelieveAgainMusicCityGhost: Did False Signatures & Cheap Guitar Net $2500?

Guitar at Event was a Donated Gift so the Total Cost to the Promoters was Zero

I recently attended an event where they were selling raffle tickets for a guitar that had several Country Music celebrity signatures on it.  The $1.00 tickets were very reasonably priced so I bought 5 of them.  I wanted to get a closer look at the guitar that I might win.  The first thing I noticed was it was not a named brand guitar.  The second thing I saw that troubled me was that several of the signatures appeared to have the same hand writing.  This of course implied that several of the artist signatures were not legitimate. The lady that won the guitar was at least in her 70’s and said she didn’t play guitar but would give it to the boy who lived next door to her.  I am sure he treasured the gift.  The following day my curiosity got the best of me and I looked up online that same guitar model to find out it’s cash value.  Low and behold there it was on sale for $179.00 with a guitar case included.  That guitar at the event was a donated gift so the total cost to the promoters was zero.  They took in over $2500 in raffle tickets on a prize that cost them nothing.
