The link above is for a Koa standard for sale in France for $2900US. Sounds like a great deal...but here's what happened:

I emailed the guy listing the Bean on Friday and he sent back photos of TB1000A #100, which I knew was available last year, but for more than $2900. So I emailed Ralf the owner of 100 and told him what was up and he told me he still has the guitar. Getting suspicious, I emailed the guy in the ad (] and asked to see pics of the real guitar for sale. He apologized and sent me pics of TB1000S #1246 - which was for sale on this board in the last month, again at a different price, and not in France! I emailed the owner of 1246 to make him aware that photos of his guitar are being used in some sort of scam.

I have sent emails to audio fanzine asking to investigate, but no response yet.

Crazy story - buyers beware of Beans for sale in France!
