Steve Jackson fraudster

Does anyone know what happened to Steve Jackson over his frauds? Did his Holden collection get sold off. As the low life ripped off a lot of people. Around 1 million i heard.
Funny i remember him calling another forum user a fraud because Steve said it wasn't a prototype! Now thats the pot calling the kettle black!
I believe that so called EK premier prototype of his was a load of cr#p and he made the whole prototype bit up to get back at the other guy he sh#t canned.
Where is the EK premier now? Does anybody know?

Holden fan , I'm aware of the numerous ek/fb cars for sale on ebay connected to the "Jackson collection " but not really versed on what you are referring to. In the words of an infamous ex politician, please explain !. Not being a smartarse I'm just not up to speed with what has gone down here, sounds dodgy ?.

Hi mate, the easiest way to explain is this.
The grub ripped off a bunch of people by taking their guitars on consignment and then selling the said item but not paying the owner of the guitar. Also ripped a lot of people when they came into his shop and dropped off thier guitars (expensive guitars) strats, gibsons etc etc for consignment , weeks months later going back to pick up unsold item would discover when home that the guitar had had all its expensive original parts replaced with cheap copies.
The list goes on and on , the guy is a rat!

I think most of us on this forum have heard of the Jackson guitars and their EK/FB holden collection.
I've never heard a bad word of the family and his holden collection. But im happy to be proven wrong as im not a big fan of that model.

You really should become a member of this forum and identify yourself by posting with your username if you are going to make serious accusations. Its just the fair and decent thing to do. It gives your words more credence too.

Anyone can remain anonymus and make any old wild accusation, sit back and watch the fallout.

Yes, I will become a member.
You dont have to take my word for it.
Just Google Steve Jackson Guitar fraud, I think you will get the picture and the extent of the damage this guy has done in the music community snd the extent to which he has kept this out of the Holden community.
The guy owes customers nearly one million dollars and is insolvent.
Go on Google it, the papers don't lie and the NSW police are doing a major investigation into Steve.
Thats how he played for his car collection, by ripping people off.

From what I've seen, they're verrrry nice cars. So that EK "Premier" isn't for real? Bummer, seemed like a good story.

I'd like to hear more about this 'fraud' business, but I agree with the other guys. Fair enough if you don't want to sign up, at least give us some sort of name?
Thanks..

The so called Steve Jackson EK prototype was labeled such by Steve himself.
If you recall he had a lot to say about another so called prototype at the time, an FX.
Basically called it a fraud and apparently called the Holden museum in Echuca where the FX was on display and told the curator it was a fake etc etc and the car was removed from the museum. Turned out that car was in fact a Holden test car of some sort.
Then suddenly Steve has himself a prototype. Coincidence? ?
That EK was only a styling exercise, not a production consideration and itwas built for one of the GMH big wigs, so really just a custom EK, definitely NOT a prototype! Nowhere does it say prototype on any document relating to that EK. In fact it doesn't even have the word "Premier" on it.
Steve is very good at manipulating a situation and being top dog in FB-EK circles gave him the credentials not to be questioned about his prototype discovery.
Shame on him for taking not only the music community for a ride but for treating the Holden community with such arrogance.
Buying up all the low mileage FB EK cars to push the prices up, all done with stolen money from his guitar customers and his creditors.
These are the facts and I stand by my words.
Steve Jackson should be exposed for the true scum he is and the thief he is.

Look mate, this guy needs to be ecposed.
There are a lot of people our there hurting because of this guy and most people don't know about this and think he is a good guy! If i can stop one bloke from dealing with him and not loose his money then so be the trouble.
But seriously, why would i be in trouble for just letting people know about this GREAT guy??
Have you actually looked this up and read what people have had done to them?
Don't shoot the messenger, forewarned is better than later.
I agree though, enough said.

I'm not a member (have been before, can't remember username etc now), I still look on here occasionally. Most of the cars got sold off individually, the FB/EK forum of which he was a major contributor of has changed so you cant view it without being a member (same with Ozrodders, annoying). It's strange that most of the members here don't know anything about it, I guess it's pretty tight knit here.

It's not really that tight in my opinion. Yeah, you get to know people and become friends without ever meeting them, it's a bit weird..

But like me, I'm sure 90% of the folks here have no interest in guitars. I didn't even know this Jackson guy was into them. I don't own an EK or FB so I don't go onto that site unless someone puts up a link here and I'll go for a quick browse. That's how I've learnt this guy has/had some nice old Holdens. I had no idea there was any fraud business happening..

(And yeah it's a pain when you get a link to a great pic and you can't see it without joining)

G'day, what's your take on the EK "Premier"?
I have been told it was buit for GMH big wig. It was a one off build and not seriously considered for production.
That means NOT a prototype and im not even sure its s Premier.
If it were a Premier, i am 99.9% sure GMH would have badged it as such.
Why build a one off Premier only to leave it nameles on its body.
The whole point would have been to not only make the car stand out in appearance and style but also to identify it.
Remember it was assembled for a high up GMH employee and it wasn't a hidden away prototype come future Holden model.

"Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold"
It seems the proverb rings true.

I remember write ups about the Jacksons and their FB/ EK collection as a teenager. I can't comment on the accuracy of the accusations but there seems no doubt that the family reputation probably won't recover anytime soon. That's really disappointing.

Hey, I almost lost $30K+ worth of guitars in the folding of this guitar shop but I managed to get the money I was owed as well as the other guitars that were on consignment just weeks before it hit the fan.

To be honest, all of my dealings with Steve were excellent but there were serious concerns with the way the business was being run in general. I managed to find a guitar I had on consignment for sale on eBay. I contacted the seller and he advised me he had purchased it from Jacksons Rare Guitars a year ago, had recorded an album with it and no longer needed it any more. Upon discovering this information, I headed into Jacksons directly and confronted the salesman I had been dealing with for 2+ years.

As a result of being lied to directly, in-person to my face by the above mentioned salesperson, my Sicilian and Irish heritage got the better of me and discussions of said salesperson exiting the building via the front window facilitated further discussions with Steve directly.

Steve was up-front, appeared honest and delivered against every promise he made. I got the money owed and return of the other guitars.

Others weren't so lucky which is an absolute disgrace.
