This is on a nearby CL. I think I smell a fake but I wanted to see what you guys thought.

Gibson Les Paul Custom w/ Case

The weird looking things to me are mainly the logo/tuner placement and the absence of a "CS" in the serial. Not to mention it looks printed not stamped...:hmm:

Real. Not exactly sure what model, but definitely real.

Only a real Gibson's logo would "bubble" like that.

Looks real but... First time I see the Custom Shop logo here, small Gibson stickers on the humbuckers, back plate is strange, pickup rings look cheap. But the rest of the guitar and the nice TKL case look real

Yea, thats what I noticed, too. Seems a bit high. Mine is a bit lower:

Also, the tuners on the right seem to be much closer to the edge of the headstock than the tuners on the left.

Any idea where I can get specs on an 87 pre-historic? I don't know much about that era.
