    Can anyone identify this Les Paul? It is confusing me with the odd looking truss rod cover, ab-1 bridge, uncovered pups etc. I like it, but need to know what it is, before I make an offer! Thanks!!

    Metric rings, crooked headstock and serial font-spacing clearly indicates that.
    Not that I haven't seen a crooked genuine one... but that's another story.

    Typical Chinese fake! Were they asking Gibson prices like it was real or?

    It really is only a matter of time before nobody can really tell the difference isn't it?
    Let's hope the new owners of Gibson start making good quality affordable models again.

    How much time you think they would need to just buy a real Gibson and clone it, if they really wanted?

    Nah. It's more than a decade that I see these piece of crap, and they are always (more or less) the same shit. Remember that making a correct Gibson Les Paul (especially if with all the appointments like a Standard or a Custom) isn't easy at all, so if they want to make it looking the same, they have to work much harder than this, which means more production costs, machinery, skilled people etc.... Also they don't care to scam the people, these are never intended to be a replica; people who buy a chinese Chibson knows it is a fake, so they are targeting a complete different market. Usually the scam it's coming from people who buy these guitars and resell on ebay, saying they are real gibson.

    I recently tried one of these recent chibson, jebus was like a huge sticky piece of plastic with rusty frets and that typical sound of a tin can...

    The pawn shop was asking $975, then it will be $749 next month & so on. It caught my eye from a distance! It is also feather weight. I look for nice guitars everywhere, but this one just seemed wrong in every way!! So glad I got ya’ll to look at it!
