Seriously, with the proliferation of computers and digital cameras, there is no reason not to post a genuine photo of the item in question.
If you're too lazy to post real photo's, don't be surprised that a lot of people are hesitant to, or won't bid. I was nearly burned on a (non-existent) Prophet 08 scam last year with stock photos.
BTW, Tom Waits lives in Sebastopol. Maybe it's his Waldorf.
