    Hello everyone, this is my first post.. I appreciatte any help.

    I am looking to possibly aquire a slash les paul standard, however I am concerned about it being authentic.. I have not seen it in person yet, and I do not have the serial #. I am including pics here, I am concerned mostly about the color of the back, this one looks really light, most of the ones i have seen are dark, again thanks for any input.

    Thank you all so much.. I was suspicious of the color on the back, but now that you guys pointed it out the metric bridge is about as obvious as the sun at noon!

    thank you again, you have all saved me a ton of head and heart ache.
