Does this look fake to you? Anyone tell what model it is?

For sale locally, it says Les Paul Custom and is listed as "selling ex's guitar" but it seems too good to be true. Nothing is glaringly fake to me, but I am not the best at spotting this, y'all are much better at this.

It's a Custom Lite. Not sure of the year, though. Definitely not an original from the early '90s (modern logo style).
I do believe you are correct after looking at more. It's under a grand, I should probably get on that.

we already told you on the fb group to go for it yesterday; can't believe it's still around...

Under a grand?! Put down the phone, get up off the computer, whatever, just get your keys and get it.

Under a grand, Jesus H that’s a hell of a deal.

Yeah I told him on FB; pictures are clearly of a real Gibson, but that doesn't mean they have that actual guitar or if there is some other scam in question.

It's a Custom Lite. I have one. Mine is a 2013 and had a 3-knob control from the factory, so unless they changed that in future models, this one may have been modded to traditional 2 Vol / 2 Tone setup.

I put up a separate post about this guitar, not seeing this one. I texted the seller this morning and haven't received a reply. Maybe @DigitalTone had better luck than I and it's already in his/her hands or maybe @Zylo is right and it's just a scheme to collect phone numbers to sell. I guess only time will tell. Still hoping I hear from the seller.
