    Sorry I can't see anything wrong with this one. Pretty sure I saw one at GC on Black Friday

    I'm just trying to be a better man, and you gotta start somewhere. I decided to start there. I'm done for this year.

    If you look at the last pic, you can see the bridge volume is too close to the tone control, compared to the neck controls.

    These fakies are getting better, but after several years on MLP, I'm geting quite good at spotting these nuances. When in doubt, feel free to contact me.

    Edit: also, the "MODEL" part shouldn't be missing under the clear coat, when the "Les Puul" part is immaculate.

    The fact that it's a tobacco tri-burst with a bright red back is the icing on the shit stain.

    Upon closer look, it's almost like they were going for a HCS, and decided it looked bad (lol) and just said "Welp, just shoot another burst over it, this time in black."

    Gotta love the 4-piece top.

    Umm, and nobody has reported the listing? How is there a 2 page comment thread and nobody has taken two seconds to report it and possibly save some kid from getting ripped off? Done now, anyway.

    In the world of Twin Peaks, it's the guitar Agent Cooper's doppelganger plays.

    WHY WHY WHY do people buy these things!?!?!? What a POS and waste of money. You give yourself a bag name for buying it- we all know you're gonna try and pawn it off as real- and they keep making these blocks of crab, giving Gibson a bag name.

    Ignorant or just want the name on the headstock (even if it is SOOO wrong)? I feel bad for the few decent honest people who fall for this kind of thing. Then you have your basic stupid ...
