    Did you make sure it was real before you bought her??? IMO $250 For an Alpine Custom sounds kinda fishy to me man. Hey man if you love her F it. It dont matter if she's real or not.....................I think.

    And yes, If she's real you got a smokin deal bro

    So im excited.

    Thanx Lefty!

    It looks real. Look at the wear on the Gold hardware, and the pickups. Most fakes are squeaky clean, that looks as if it has seen a couple of years of play

    I've never heard of anything like that before either...

    Post that link if you get a chance.

    If it checks out, that IS a good deal...

    Looks exactly like my Gibson Studio before the refinish... definitely a good deal if it's legit.

    If they are Japanese made Epiphones for that price, it is a HELL OF A DEAL!

    I'd love to spend some time in Japan - I'd be buying up MIJ Epis (they blow Korean and Chinese Epis to pieces) - Orvilles, Tokais, Edwards, Bury, shit - I'd go nuts!

    That would be a red flag to me. "Not as advertised" might mean "not genuine", but hopefully that is not what it means.
