    Did you read the listing?

    "It lookslike new, not even a single scratch. Incredible White Beauty, Excellent and amazing sound, perfect Gibson replica with 3 Original Hambucker pickups!!! 57 calssic; Bridge pickup, 57classic plus is the Middle pickup and 500T neck pickup. It is a guitar for every guitar player in the World!!!! hardwood case included!!"

    Does clearly admitting it is a replica clears him of any hassle with pissed-off buyers?

    Not disagreeing that it's a cheap knockoff, only wondering how flexible e-Bay's policies are when it comes to plainly announced fake goods.

    The 'Ask seller a question' function has been changed. It may not even be possible to warn people it's a fake.

    I have no idea what the hell an R-1 is, but it sure looks like an early-80s invader to me.

    EDIT: I take that back, do you see the 2 extra holes in the lower bout, and the expanded backplate cavity? Confused...

    "This is Gibson Les Paul Deluxe Goldtop 56 ' reissue 91. I'm the second owner of this guitar. It has insignificant scratches and edges. In general condition is ok. Sell it because I need money immediate."

    I see wrong fret size (and no nibs). The serial number on the back is a dead giveaway, it's all wrong. The wood grain on the back is a species of Mahogany that's only found in Aisia.

    I know, I could tell it was a fake before the picture even loaded.:D

    I was just pointing out the various grammical errors that seem to be a staple of ads for fake Gibsons, which are pretty much "cut and paste".:thumb:

    There are various different ads (from different sellers), that use the EXACT same descriptions for different models.
