Looks to be a fake right? Listed as "Gibson". Has paper work though? Clear to see the splice on the back mid neck which I think Gibsons are one piece (then add pieces at the wings), correct? Head even looks taller. Says Gibson in add

Seller established on Ebay, if fake maybe they do not know?

THIS JAW-DROPPING GOLDEN GIBSON GUITAR IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. SIX STRINGS AND RIGHT HANDED, THIS GUITAR WILL BE ENVYED BY ALL.

:rofl:

A pawnshop. Why am I not surprised? They know exactly what this is.

Agreed. I wonder why there's a small picture of the back of the headstock in the body of the listing but isn't in the main pictures that can be enlarged? (rhetorical question alert)

Just wow- it's not even a convincing fake.

The photos are all blurry and are taken at the same kind of funny angles you always see fake peddlers use.

They know what this is, and they want 3k for it.

Also see the bridge has the slot in adjustment for screwdriver, another sign of fake Gibson. That seller sells a lot of products too.

Gibson uses black pickup ring screws on guitars with gold hardware.
Epiphone (and the fakes) use gold.
