    I've just been helpfully directed to a post on the les paul forum about this.

    http://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?204771-Burst-for-sale-on-ebay-uk

    Seems to me like the ones in the know see a fairly obvious replica.

    "Compressed air checking on headstock and all over body. Wrong nut. Kinda looks like Indian rosewood. Lacquer over the nibs? Really? Body color completely wrong. Sloppy tape and spray build up where neck meets body. What is with that horn tip shape? Anodized pickup ring screws. And we haven't even seen the cavities."

    and

    "I struggled to see anything right. Looks too new and wear looks false on body and neck. Headstock is off; odd shape and logo placement and odd Les Paul signature. Something is not right. The compressed air thing people were doing in the earlier days of relic work. He has removed the mummy toe tuners (easily bought). Why would they be so withered when the rest of the guitar shows its been kept well (for a guitar I would say is 8ish years old)."

    If it's real, I'll hit my couch up for the loose change and take it off the market.

    I'll just go rob a couple banks then I'll be good enough to pay for it.
