    Yeah this place is an invaluable resource of help for authenticating potential buys on the second hand market and thanks to all who have chimed in. As for why buy the guitar with the baked maple board. I get the whole “not being true to original spec of a les paul” thing etc but I mean most les...

    The more I look at it the more I’m feeling iffy. Just spotted the A string tuner looks to be replaced or different. I’ve asked if he could send better more front facing angle shots of the front and back of the headstock for me. Also asked if he might have the original Andertons receipt which...

    Man I forgot how much stress buying second hand could be. So first issue over than me feeling funny about where the serial is stamped is how the 3 middle numbers seem different, is that odd? Secondly the serial on the headstock looks to start 10882 but on the inspection sheet it’s 10892. Could...

    Ahh ok that’s good, although the number looks much further down on my picture than it downs on your headstock, is the positioning a bit iffy or is that something that varies?

    So got some extra pics of the case etc but I’m not sure if I’m just being paranoid now or if it’s a bad pic but does the way everything is written on that headstock and the placement just look all kinds of wrong? The serial number seems to check out but yeah now that we’re on this is it legit...

    Good Good spot on the year. Maybe someone else on here knows more on how long they made them for but I’m hoping it’s a case that 2011 was the first release and if it was a popular limited run they maybe done some more a few times including 2012? As for the the bridge how can you tell it’s not...

    Ahh sorry they’re my pics from my imgur. I must’ve put tribute on there by mistake haha. But yeah someone chucked the link for the model somewhere up above in the thread. Seems to check out with what the guy has told me about the spec. Thanks for the concern though.

    It’s a traditional limited run as far as I know. Was mainly in the US but andertons got a few other here apparently which is where the owner got it from.

    Yeah the current owner put dimarzio anniversary PAFs in there with ages covers. Yeah I’ll have to google the method for aging nickel, I don’t think it’s too hard from what I can remember seeing people do on here.

    Hey thanks for the link, it’s pretty good to have that info. Also good to hear some good views on the baked maple. When I last frequented this forums I think it was still getting a lot of hate but I spose it might not have been as bad as people first thought. Spose I’ll see for myself in a...

    Photo’s chucked up here for now, hopefully that works. Included the little bits of wear on the pickguard and back. Another reason the wear doesn’t bother me is because it means that it’s been played and only good ones get played regularly lol.

    So I’ve just had an offer accepted on a 2012 traditional in iced tea (I’d post pics but it’s been so long since I’ve been on here I’ve forgotten how). I’m hopefully going to try it on Thursday, fingers crossed it all checks out. Only sticking point it has a baked maple board apparently. I...

    UK Epiphone Elitist price?

    Ahh ok, that explains it then. Well two things then. The one I’m looking at is being advertised as a 2007 model, is that possible if they stopped in 06? I mean it looks legit but ya never know. Secondly they want £1000 for it, it’s had some upgrades such as wiring caps and jack. Apparently it...

    UK Epiphone Elitist price?

    So I’ve done some searches online and can’t seem to see any dealers in the uk selling these to give me an idea on what these go for brand new in the UK. I’ve also searched on here to see if anything comes up but couldn’t see anything that helps me specifically. So basically what I would like to...

    Can tokai experts give this a look over for me?

    Yeah definitely. Wonder if it's been dropped or something

    Can tokai experts give this a look over for me?

    Yeah it is a strange place to get dinged as they put it. Also the scuff on the poker chick and bridge pickup are unusual. Then again if it's legit and has bkp pickups in it, I can get it for £350. Don't know if it's too good a deal to pass up.

    Can tokai experts give this a look over for me?

    Hey this came up locally but I'm not the most knowledgable of Japan tokai so if anyone could double check it for me that'd be great. Tokai Love Rock ULC95 guitar, black, Japanese made 2003...

    2017 les paul at a low price? Fake you think?

    So ain't had anymore replies but I replied to their last email just asking why they're selling and how long they'd had the guitar lol. Since then a new bits been added to the blurb for the ad to say at the bottom "been stung by PayPal before therefore only face to face cash transaction". Hope...

    2017 les paul at a low price? Fake you think?

    Didn't think of someone selling the ex's stuff, still though that's pretty scummy. Apparently people are going to look at it later on so it's either legit in which case it'll be sold soon or they'll be a story on the local news about some guy getting robbed and beat up while trying to buy a...
