A friend of mine proposed to sell me this gibson (see the pictures). At the moment i have seen this guitar only in pictures. He told me that there is no serial number on the back. I will upload more pictures when i will see it and play it. Please tell me your first impressions based on this pictures. Thank you and sorry for my english as i am from france.

    Cutaway looks Agile?

    Metric bridge-posts, wrong body shape, poorly-placed knobs, wrong inlays (Gibson never used trapezoids pointed in that direction), never used that headstock, three-screw TRC.

    C'est une guitare qui porte le nom Gibson mais qui n'en possède que peu de caractéristiques.
    En plus, c'est une des plus mauvaise fausses Gibson qui m'ait été donné de voir!
    N'achetez pas cette guitare!
    :D

    As others have said, there's very little about that guitar that looks like a Gibson Les Paul.

    Welcome to the forum, BTW!
