    has slotted bridge posts also, seller changed pickups and i am trying to get serial number for date...i just noticed frets and no nibs

    i think its a chibby...and i think i will stay away from it...its on eBay

    just noticed he doesnt say its a Gibson Les Paul but claims he put Gibson pickups in..

    im getting better at detective work from you guys here..

    I could counterfeit a greenback by drawing it with a charcoal pencil and it would look more convincing as the real thing than that guitar. wow.

    Dreadful. Why go to the trouble, if your are not even going to attempt to put things NEAR their proper location. A sucker born every minute?

    Someone actually paid $1000?

    More shocking than the poor attempt of making a passable LP.

    Not even close. The diamond is 2/3rds what it should be. Didnt need to check anything out after that.

    Nearly everything is out of place or proportion. Just noticed it is missing the high E string ...

    I bet it plays great! << Sarcasm

    That literally checks every box for fakes, and maybe even added a few of its own.

    The funniest thing about it is, the shaddow of the headstock is the shape of an Epi headstock.

    Sadly, these seem to sell on EBay at inflated prices all the time. Will probably gets passed on to another sucker, and the wheel in the sky keeps on turning...
