Gibson Les Paul Custom Electric Guitar on eBay (end time 16-Dec-10 21:13:29 GMT)

Jeepers! would you look at that. its a custom/standard hybrid!!

things that jump out......

Headstock shape is incorrect
truss rod cover is positioned too near to the nut, also displaying 'custom'
as well as a custom 5 ply binding and split diamond inlays on headstock, incorrect match for the design of the body
note the 'gibson' stickers on p/ups and control cavity cover. damn sure gibson never puts those on their new models apart from the plek'd logo
...and what does one pay for all this chinese goodness...yes a minimum of £800
....however that maple top does look nice....but i call a veneer/sticker!

has anyone bought a chinese copy btw.....are those actually grover tuners? or am i just being an idiot by asking that.

well chaps, you know what to do. if your as sure as i am that this is a fake, report him to ebay

To me, its a pretty obvious fake....just by the serial # alone, I can tell...I'm pretty sure those are knockoff Grovers & not the real thing..

Ah yes, the old story. Guy who doesn't know shit about Gibsons buys fake. Finds out and resells it. And you know what ? there's usually some other guy dumber than him that buys it. There are about 50 Chinese fakes on ebay USA today. Its the holiday season !!!!!!
