Default Is this legit?

Do counterfeit boards exist?

I'm looking around for a good deal on an '09 Burton Love & found one for a pretty good price on Ebay. Not so cheap that it's gotta be a scam, but a decent discount. Looking at the pictures I'm not sure. The colors just look a lot more washed out & less vibrant on his board than on the stock photos and on any other pictures I've seen of it.

Here's the pics side by side (his on the left, stock photos on the right). Do I have a legitimate concern, or should it just be chalked up to the lighting/flash?

Could be due to picture/flash/lighting, but there is another possibility; the board on eBay could be a "Second". Burton offers "Seconds" (aka "blems") to dealers at discounted prices. Supposedly the Seconds are of normal quality but have cosmetic issues, such as off colors. All Burton seconds have the word "SECOND" stamped into the base of the nose. You may want to ask the seller if the deck is a second.

Nope, it says so in the ad:

"You are bidding on a '09 burton love 155. Playboy. Brand new, still has the stickers on the base.
Comes with cloth "Love" bag.
This board is absolutely mint. Has never had bindings on it.
Note: this is not a "second""

Not all cameras, monitors, or eyeballs for that matter are created equal. Quit your worrying.

Although you might want to make sure your home hill allows that board. Some places are banning the board because some parents are uptight jackasses.

lol i don't think you have a legitimate concern. get the love 155 - seems like what you really want from the threads you've posted. it's the lighting or camera or could be so many different variables...

Just check before you get it, is all. Sure, it's a stupid thing to ban, but unless you own the hill, you've got no control over it.
