    Damn... I could tell it was a fake immediately, but I think it helps that I've owned probably 20 Gibson Les Pauls in my lifetime... I feel bad for anybody who gets ripped off on EGAY on this sort of thing. I hope that seller gets banned and sued accordingly.

    There are so many things wrong with that guitar. The stickers on the pickups are a dead giveaway, the input jack plate is too small (and should be Gold)for a Supreme, binding over the frets, and the frets should aslo be gold.

    You can tell most are fakes before looking at pictures. Just the way the guy types and everything.

    If you look close, those are Epiphone stickers on the pickups.

    yeah he did, and the Feds just might take the seller away in silver bracelets too . Deceit is a nasty thing . I do hope the seller gets what he deserves
