Everybody in the USA must be in prison for some offense or another.
One can question the ethics of replicas/fakes, etc. without being silly. Do you work for the Gibson propaganda department?
The odds of someone in my country, Canada, doing prison time for selling this gutar would be ZILCH. Our courts are based on common sense and no judge is going to treat selling a declared fake guitar the same as selling couterfeit $20 bills. In fact, in Canada and most western democracies, even couterfeiting $20 bills would probably not land you in prison if you had no previous criminal record.
Do the police in the USA really have nothing else to do? Judges bored? Prisons with empty cells?

To your sarcastic questions, you'd be surprised what laws get enforced when there's publicity for the ambitious in it. But practically, the chances of prison time here are no greater than wherever you are. Confiscation of the goods, however, is a completely different story.
