Musiciansfriend Bait and Switch

Musiciansfriend advertising a add on Google for a Les Paul Tribute 50's model for $329. Takes you to an EBAY page. They show a picture of the guitar. Even list it under this heading:

Gibson LPST5HTGSCH3 Les Paul '50s Tribute2016 T Electric Guitar - Satin Gold Top

When you click buy, it swaps the guitar out for a purple Schecter.

Wrote them on EBay and got a must be an ebay screw up. Hmmm on Google too. Ad still running a day later.

Search Les Paul Tribute and then go to the Shopping tab. Can't miss it.

This is very fraudulent. Considering seeing what the Texas Attorney General might have to say about this bait and switch ad!

Looked at the ad again for this post and now it's on Google and Ebay from Music123. Which is the same company as Musiciansfriend and Guitar Center.

I couldn't find it. But nobody with any sense would think a Gibson 50's Tribute Les Paul would be $329. That's just silly. And if it was really there, it was an honest mistake. Not bait and switch.

You're just mad because you thought you could take unfair advantage of their error and then it turned out you couldn't.
