Default Scott Original G-Series Rod or Not

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this forum as well as fly fishing. So here it is, I did as much research as I could on all types of rod (bamboo, fiberglass, graphite). And unfortunely all the bamboo rods I wanted fell out of my price range. So I looked into fiberglass/graphite rods. I decided I wanted something like an Orive "Far & Fine" or a Scott original G series rod. Well I supposedly found one on ebay this past weekend, however I couldn't find much information on exactly what the Scott blank rods looked like. I won the auction and now I'm a little concerned as to whether the rod is really a Scott original g series.

Can anyone confirm? I'd appreciate it very much!

I can't attach pics yet so I put the link.

Thanks,
Pete

I'd suggest a vintage Pflueger Medalist. Great reel that you can pick up cheap and which looks amazing on a classic rod like an old Scott G.
