Hey guys I got recently taken and picked up what I now know is highly likely a fake Les Paul, odd thing is the numbers show it’s real, my question is how good are these Chinese manufacturers that they can actually get a legit number .
They have a computer with graphical web browser.
Ya, I had no idea as they’ve made so many models over the years, and colors especially this one being from 06 according to the number, I honestly had no idea, lesson learned.Yeah, I mean, its not hard to just copy a legit S/N. Almost certainly every one they cranked out had the same serial.
Too bad you got had on it - that one is really fake, surprised you didn't catch all the tells before buying.
Easy for them as for anyone, it's on the web.
That’s actually quite funny, ya I got scammed, it’s funny but sad because I lost a nice acoustic for itHey! That's @cooljuk 's double-neck serial!

Hey guys, sorry if this is off topic. I'm about to close the deal on a epi lp, but the guy seemed kinda sketchy. Just wondering if it's legit.
Did you not read post #9 above...?
