I have a 2003 Epiphone Les Paul Standard and I want to check whether it's real or a fake.
Here are the details:
Your guitar was made at the
Unsung Plant, Korea
Production Number: 2833
The serial number is: U03072833
Here are the photos:
Sorry about the quality of the photos, by the way.
I really hope that my guitar isn't a fake.
I got the guitar from Bonners Music Store, in Eastbourne, East Sussex, UK, a reputable and trusted dealer but, fake's are coming up everywhere so I just want to check.
Its not fake, youre good.
Hey, been followin the thread. Thought this was interesting. Looked real to me, but the serial number on the back comes up unregisterd on guitardaterproject.org. Any opinions?
08 Epiphone by Gibson Les Paul Custom White NOS - eBay (item 140299330662 end time Feb-15-09 16:50:00 PST)
Looks good to me.
Its one of the new ones with no plant identifier in the serial, which is why it didnt come up. Its good.
EPIPHONE GIBSON JUNIOR SUNBURST, EXCELLENT CONDITION - eBay (item 260349236903 end time Feb-17-09 22:44:21 PST)
Also, do you know if that's one of the reissues or a new jr. with a different pickup? Thanks
Probably just a new junior, not familiar with those models.
I dont know a lot about the Juniors, perhaps someone can add some experience to this.
I think you can trust the guy, though. It looks like all his other items are from estate sales or something, high quality stuff by the looks.
I checked the serial number and this is what i got:
Your guitar was made at the
Sae Jung Plant, China
Production Number: 8245
Its probably ok, but I would seek experience from folks that know Juniors more.. Wish we could be of more help.
I'm assuming its real because I don't think people would really waste their time making fakes of cheap guitars..
Personally, I have never even heard of a Junior being faked, but then theres a first time for everything, and I just dont want to staple a firm "real" on that one unless I know for sure. That wouldnt be right for you, or the seller.
i have one of those juniors for sale
it has p90 !
check this one, i think its the real deal but the knobs look a little off to me, could just be the angle of the pic....thoughts?
Whoa, a legit Silverburst. Never seen one of them, at least not in a long time.
sweet dude, i thought so too but i was a little weirded out by the knobs and the fact that there is SO damn many fakes....sweet, she will be mine then, stay tuned!
Yep, Beware of Silverbursts, The Slash's and the entire Zakk Wilde line. LOADS of fakes of them out there.
HI guys new to this forum, looked at murrays fake custom, i have a dodgy looking standard and the control cavity looks similar to Murrays and the serial No is very close, Murray if you're still about where did you get yours from? here are some pics what do you guys think. It's supposed to be an 06 model
oops hope picks come now
