    Well looks like I got scammed $2500! :-(

    Just got my my 1959 ZEBRA PAF in the mail the other day.
    Gibson PAF Pickup 1959 Gibson Les Paul Pickup Zebra pup - eBay (item 200506815677 end time Aug-28-10 06:31:46 PDT)

    Well it is not exactly what the seller advertised.
    1.It's not a ZEBRA.
    2.It has a chrome cover.
    3.I don't think it's even a real Gibson Pup.
    4.seller says he has a source at SD that says Gibson changed to chrome covers in 1959-60?

    I never knew this to be the case. I thought it was 1965 on the T-top pup when this change took place. Can anyone advise me on this.

    Thank you MLP members for any help in advance,
    homenote.

    The pictures are down, but if you are unsure don't buy it. I think the logic here is not to communicate why it seems fake, just if it is in question. No need to get the fakers better at their craft!

    Dear myeBayID,

    Hi,
    this item was purchased from ebay as a legitimate gibson - and I have had it serviced by a qualified guitar technician who only had positive things to say about the guitar.

    Thanks

    Dear nocturnal_rapport,

    why are you selling a fake guitar as a legitimate Gibson?

    Hi all - I've been studying the threads on fakes and this one looks kosher to me, but before I bid could I get a second (third, fourth etc) opinion from one of you in-the-know guys please?

    Big love!

    hey every one, i posted this up in the vintage section, but i'm pretty sure the pickup labeled vintage gibson paf or something close is a re issue. looks off anyways, i'd ask for better pics and look at some real ones!cheers.

    look fellows there are severasl sites selling only chinese guitars, counterfit american guitars,gibson,fender,prs,epiphone. at the moment i am in the philippines,anything posted here is expected to sell for a fake price, when you post a real one, they start rasing hell why it costs so much, so i left the price high,and told everyone where to go buy cheap fakes at lesser prices.
    beebuyer.com has all makes and kinds of counterfit guitars, as stated above, i have even been told there are shops here that have a few real american guitars,aftr you buy one that take it in back to pack it real nice for you and then change it to chinese fakes,leave the store then it is relatively to late to do spit about it,but they always get there money first thing before anything,they are every where they are every where.
    why cant they be stopped at the border for bringin in counterfit items like they do clothes and tennis shoes,yea dh gate sells alot of them to, that advertisment came up while i was writing this reply on my les paul forums, they are counterfits big time also.

    item on e bay ph 190518828752
    it is real,in a place that expects counterfit fake prices,sulit.com.ph has alot of chinese fakes for sale also, i have looked even the american strats are marked as usa and what i looked at were chinese counterfit,they just wanted american price along with the counterfit guitar,strange world these days, guitars are not even safe any longer.
