    Just to clear up the problem of all of the multiple "Fake LP on Ebay" threads, here is a thread to post all of the "Fraudulent" listings. This way it will be easier to see them, as they will be in ONE thread.

    Just think of it as a "Fake Epiphone Thread", but for Ebay.:thumb:

    Gibson Classic Les Paul Studio Plus 59' Electric Guitar - eBay (item 110576794387 end time Sep-21-10 10:03:51 PDT)

    I think this one may be a fake. I know all the other "Gibsons" on his seller items list are fake. I will let you see his name on the bay, but he's based out of hong kong. and the guitars don't come with a case. And conviently enough, the pics don't quite capture the headstock. Just wondered why would a studio premium be going for 2,700 bucks, and you can buy a custom from this same guy for a whopping 289.00. just be careful fellas.

    Doesn't matter if you report it. Ebay won't take any action. The guitar sold for over $1800 to some poor sucker. Seller knew it was fake and didn't give a shit.

    Just looked at this one. Sounds fishy. Who would pay $2700 for a "Studio 59 style?". I copied this from the ad.


    Made in USA
    Brown sunburst color
    Hardware:
    receiver 1 :490R Alnico magnet humbucker
    receiver 2: 498T Alnico magnet humbucker
    4 buttoms: 2 volume, 2 tone


    Does not look like a legit auction. NO CASE for $2700?!!

    if you go on ebay and type in "bullseye elctric guitar" you will see several fake Zakk models. The pictures they display do not have any name on the headstock and it even looks like fake emghz pickups. DO NOT BUY THIS INSTRUMENT! China is like the most economically prosperous country on the planet, we already help their revenue enough so don't give in to this ripoff guitar.

    This is the result of a cyber attack by a Fender forum against site of John Hu...notorious seller of Fake Fenders and Gibsons.

    His fakes are everywhere. He even had a fan club.

    Also sells under 'Finemusic' and kicked off of Ebay a couple of times.

    You got to love it. Then we all spammed his email with wanting to buy a fake guitar. His english is poor and he won't be able to distinguish real requests to buy fake guitars from 'fake' requests to buy fake guitars. :naughty:

    Re a lot of so-called 'legitimate' gutar sellers from China. If you email them they will put anything on the headstock...their own brand names in the ads on ebay, etc. are just a sham.
