Hi people :)
I need some help from you, im going to a private seller of a Gibson Les Paul tomorrow and im to afraid to by a fake Les Paul.
He told me that is is a 2005 Gibson Les Paul Custom. And it is a real Gibson and he has the original case to the guitar. But after reading on the internet i was getting worried :rolleyes:.

Best regards
Me :)

It looks like they've used an ebony board on that one, which is a first.

Everything else screams fake though.

No, it's definitely a fake. The SN colour and font is off on the headstock, as is the logo placement. There are probably some other signs... most of the fakes to me look like Epiphones.

Anyone ever see the YouTube video of some kid playing his new Les Paul custom? At any rate it was not real. Several kind posters let them know the guitar was fake and instead of saying "Thanks!", comments were disabled, LOL!

Tanks allot :shock:
I don't think the seller knows that he has a fake one:shock:
Dont think i dare to by a Gibson Les Paul used anytime in the future.
I think this is to many fakes out there :(
Think that there are a couple that are playing on a fake and don't know it:hmm:
Tanks allot again.

it's the end of the world when people say they won't buy a used les paul because there are too many fakes,
a little education is your friend.
is this a fake , is that a fake?come on people it ain't that hard.
can't anyone make a decision anymore?or do we need to be walked thru every decision we make by others.
if you can't tell a fake from a real one , you don't need a real one. any will do. trust me.

Still suprising that so many folks don't know the tell tale signs of an imposter.:wow:
