For the record, Glenn, I do recognize you as a longtime poster to GHeads, and I've never had any reason to suspect your honesty or sincerity. If I'd realized the thread was actually you plugging your own auction, rather than "look what I saw on Ebay", I might have chosen a different expression than "FAKE", perhaps saying instead "IMHO you are either mistaken or got told a tall tale."
And I hope you realize that I'm not spitefully trying to F up your transaction, which I really couldn't care less about... and sure, if that turns out to be someone's sound then that's a great deal. I'm sure you know me as one whose main participation in the gear group has most often been focused on offering evidence towards keeping the historical record as accurate as can be proven. Has anybody asked Weir himself? I don't know much about what was said, but I happen to know that Blair Jackson has recently grilled Bob (grilled Cheese? ...yummmm.)pretty deeply about his early gear history while doing research for Grateful Gear, so I guess I'll just wait and read the book.
Like I said before it looks like a great speaker system, and is obviously worth a nice chunk of change. Good luck!
