What do you make of this one? Don't think Seller has it id'd correctly. And what's with that bridge?

Hmm, my guess would be a trapeze tail was converted to a wraparound bridge/tail?
But, isn't a trapeze tail used because there isn't anything substantial to anchor a stop tail? I wouldn't think anything could be added through the F holes to support that setup. :x

That's normally the case yes. My Gibson 330 certainly is "trapezed" and there ain't nuthin' inside.

But I have seen 330 models with a 335 style bridge too. Those, I think, have a tone block under the bridge as opposed to a full length post. That's the construction on my MIK APII TA60. This one though is suspect and heading for disaster.

Just no. Overpriced and suspect. No.
