what about this one ??
Is this Les Paul legit?
Welcome here @ MLP
from the pics it looks fine - though a pic of the serial# would be helpful
what made you think it could be faked ?
The asking price on it is $335, which seems low. It was advertised as the PlusTop Pro, but it seems like it does not have the ProBuckers (based on those pictures) so it may not be as good of a deal as i thought
Since my previous tries to purchase a second hand Epi LP Tribute plus I am looking at this one on eBay:
Any hints if this is a legit one or not?
Thanks for in advance your help although the bid is ending in a couple of hours...
I don't see anything wrong with it
Thanks for the prompt reply!
Unfortunately the seller was afraid to send it overseas so I missed this one too.
Farewell until the next one....
Is this one real guys?
It looks good to me
I am checking the following guitar since I am about to purchase it.
Could you please check it out and let me know if this is legit or not?
The seller writes on his listing that the model is the EPI LP Traditional Pro Limited Edition but the label on the headstock writes Standard... Any ideas which is the model of the guitar?
Thanks in advance!
The guitar looks absolute legit to my eyes,
though I don't think they made the Trad-Pro in this color
looks like a 'regular' Standard to me
Good morning Peter,
thank you for your help.
I have searched a bit and there was a model called:
Epiphone Limited Edition Les Paul Traditional Pro
In http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guit...ion-les-paul-traditional-pro-electric-guitar# and then choose style Metallic Gold (MG)
and in youtube:
It is good that it looks legit but the trussrod cover label is confusing me....
From what I understand I would have to check for the split coil function. If split coil is there it should be a Traditional Pro with a changed label. If not, this is a Standard one with changed pickups probably...
I am also trying to figure out what are the differences between the Les Paul Traditional Pro and the Limited Edition one.
If you have any more ideas on what to check for, I would be more than happy to learn all about it.
Thank you for your time.
Pickups have been touched for sure as the zebra on the bridge should be reversed. On stock you have the black sides facing each other.
it should have a 'satin' surface on the backside.....
This is really serious as I am trying to find if there is something wrong with the guitar or if the seller is wrong regarding the model he says that he has on sale.
It looks like that either the guitar is a Standard LP with changed pickups or it is a Traditional pro limited edition with changed truss rod label (cannot understand why...) and at least reversed bridge pickup (cannot understand why too...)
Too many questions. It looks like that I have to stop negotiations for this one or to try to check it deeper...
Thank you for your time and help.
Good point too Peter!
From the picture it looks like there is no satin finish at the back anyway....
So I will have to check at least:
1. Split coil (not on Standard)
2. Pickups (if they are changed) surely touched as PierM wrote!
3. Satin finish at the back
4. A little bit flatter neck (if it is Traditional Pro)
Thank you all for your help!
Just for the record, the guitar was actually an EPI LP Standard with Epiphone ceramic Plus Zebra coil pickups!
Not for me.
Until the next one,
thanks for your contribution on solving the mystery.
