    I would assume they have someone that knows about guitars at the shop he got it from. What's his excuse?

    This explains so many things! I had no idea "full stop" meant "period".

    All my life I've heard people make statements ending in the phrase "full stop", as if to emphasize they are serious. Like: "That's the best playing I've ever heard. Full stop".


    I thought the saying was odd. But if the person said "that's the best playing I've ever heard, PERIOD", I knew exactly what they meant.


    It also explains the term "double-stop", when looked at on a music staff.

    This thread is so enlightening!

    Just got back from the pawn shop and everything went smoothly. The store manager seemed very interested as to how I was able to determine that it was fake, I hoping it was so he could learn how to spot it in the future...


    Eitherway I received a full refund and it's time to hunt for a REAL Les Paul now. Suggestions would be much appreciated! How should I start my journey [again]

    Buy from the MLP Classifieds.

    We're all great people! If you see something listed by @guitaraddict , shop fast. His prices are great, he's an excellent seller here.



    One thing I can count on, no fakes would get listed here and last ten minutes without being called out.

    No, you shouldn't just keep it and treat it as though the manufacturer is irrelevant. It's a material object with market value -- or not. Personally, I don't have an extra $5-600 (the difference b/w the $1K you paid and the likely real value) to burn. Of course, you need to be sure of the terms of your purchase. The pawn shop may just say "it is what it is; we didn't label it as a Gibson" (assuming they didn't). But I wouldn't be able to enjoy anything for which I was charged double or more the true value. If this is the fake it appears to be, I'd be pissed.

    Moreles..... you should check out the thread.


    We go a bit off track, but the guitar is already returned for a full refund.
