    No pic of the front?
    I'm no expert on Epiphone's but I don't like the shape of the body from the back...

    Camera distortion or that body doesn't look right.

    Gotta go.
    I'm out.
    Good luck!

    The proportions on that body look all kinds of wrong. That would have to be some serious camera angle distortion if it's legit.

    Hi, welcome here @ MyLesPaul-forum

    I'd like to see some more pics to make a better call on it
    • opened control-cavity
    • side-shot where the neck meets the headstock
    By now I tend to call it fake....

    Looks legit to me, but I wouldn't bet on it because hard to tell on such small (and very angled) pictures.
