Re: les paul CUSTOM !!!! for $250

Did you make sure it was real before you bought her??? IMO $250 For an Alpine Custom sounds kinda fishy to me man. Hey man if you love her F it. It dont matter if she's real or not.....................I think.

And yes, If she's real you got a smokin deal bro

Re: les paul CUSTOM !!!! for $250

It looks real. Look at the wear on the Gold hardware, and the pickups. Most fakes are squeaky clean, that looks as if it has seen a couple of years of play

Looks exactly like my Gibson Studio before the refinish... definitely a good deal if it's legit.

If they are Japanese made Epiphones for that price, it is a HELL OF A DEAL!

I'd love to spend some time in Japan - I'd be buying up MIJ Epis (they blow Korean and Chinese Epis to pieces) - Orvilles, Tokais, Edwards, Bury, shit - I'd go nuts!

That would be a red flag to me. "Not as advertised" might mean "not genuine", but hopefully that is not what it means.

Re: les paul CUSTOM !!!! for $250

The size of the EE is not always a good indicator, I have a couple that are brand new from GC that are 08's that the EE is slightly larger than the rest of the serial number and they are most assuredly real.

The only thing that would really concern me is the "not as advertised" message sent by Ebay. That would tell me there is something wrong with the listing at a minimum.

Pics of the control cavity insides, headstock- front and back, and pics of the control placement on the top of the guitar.

There is always the possibility that it is real and just a smoking deal, I got my custom used, an 02 Ebony for $300.

Re: les paul CUSTOM !!!! for $250

Re: les paul CUSTOM !!!! for $250

the "not as described" was because he listed it as a gibson, but from the pics on ebay it was clearly a epiphone!!! um the EE is maybe alittle bigger.
