Fake GPX4500


Recommended Posts

Yes that's a fake. Smart point on a real GPX4500 is by the coil plug, and like someone else pointed out the GPX4500 has switches, not knobs. Not only is it a fake, it's a bad fake.

Here's what a real GPX4500 looks like:

Excellent photo, Doc. Here's the display side from the eBay listing - I don't remember ever seeing this typeset used on a 4500. Minelab always has that sci-fi space age looking typeset, with an open 4 and a flat-topped G. Never heard of a "European Model" before either... Something seems a little off with the battery too.

Well the battery on a GPX4500 has the headphone symbol and the speaker symbol by the female headphone jack because the GPX4500 battery has a built in amplifier.
