    well.. you know what.. it doesn't look fake.. looks more like wrong labelling.. it doesn't look like a desert burst.. kinda tobacco-burst-ish to me.. :D

    what do you think? :wave:

    :D

    If you read the whole thing, it actually states that it is a "Chinese version" of a Les Paul Supreme. Of course after he puts "Gibson USA" on it!

    I dunno but I would say, having some law enforcement experiece that this could pass as a fraud case and now most likely an interstate fraud case, FBI time

    I emailed ebay and gibson about it, as well as the buyer...

    The seller was banking on someone missing the fine print. Its still ripping someone off when under the rest of the description he's talking about gibson this and gibson that..

    As well wouldn't this still be selling a fake? It doesn't clearly sake its a fake, and it has Gibson USA on the back and probably a fake seiral number. I don't care what the seller had is his descrption, you can't sell bootleg DVD's on ebay either...

    I don't know, as log as you have an ebay account and are logged it, it should let you.

    It actually would be considered counterfit, and you can't sell such items on ebay.

    Good, glad to hear. Hope the buyer didn't pay yet.
