    Nearby my home they are selling this one:

    http://articulo.mercadolibre.com.uy...rica-epiphone-les-paul-standard-by-gibson-_JM

    The seller says it is a Epi LP Standard, but as you will see there are some appointments that should not be there if that was the case:
    - Not a drop burst
    - Knob markers (metal ones)

    Also the serial number is a bit odd, like if it was on a sticker...

    I think it might be one of these:
    http://www.epiphone.com/Products/Les-Paul/1959-Les-Paul-Standard.aspx

    If thats the case, I'd jump right into it... once I sort the wife problem, and such...

    What do you say?

    The serial number sticker is from a company that "refurbishes" (fixes) guitars that had some type of an issue and sells them.
    It has issues..Chipped finish, Really crooked tuner(Misaligned mounting screw or has the hole been stripped).

    Don't know where you are located but to me 550$ US is to much for that guitar.
