    I'm pretty sure it will sell.

    I guess after the auction ends and the winner's identity is revealed, I could send him a message telling him he just won a fake guitar and stop him before he pays for it.

    I dont think they reveal the identities of the winners anymore. They show up as N****H or similar.

    Oh well....that's just too bad that the seller can get away with it.....getting paid over $1,200 for a guitar that probabbly costs $200 - $300 at the most.

    I don't see why so many people get their panties in a wad about reporting these guitars. Not that anyone is doing it in this thread, I'm talking about others. I reported it and told them that Gibson has been notified as well, so maybe that will light a fire. I would want someone to keep me from getting scammed.

    I've been looking on ebay trying to play spot the fakes.

    I was looking at this one, and I'm not sure what is making this one fake.

    The pictures are low quality, and I'm not very good at this. will some one please point it out to me.

    See the bridge post screw heads? They are the large metric style, like on an Epiphone.

    The diamond on the headstock is too small ("epiphone custom"-size), the Gibson on the headstock is not parallel to the fretboard (it slants), the script on the L on Les Paul on the truss rod cover goes below the line - like an epiphone, the white surround on the truss rod cover doesn't go around the bottom of the bell, the volume/tone knobs aren't parallel to the fretboard........... And that case is a joke!

    NEVER buy one when the serial number looks white like this.....not the correct size of numbers and the fakes are punched in after the guitar is painted not before like a real Gibson
