Someone offered me a Gibson Les Paul custom cherry burst, so I just wanted to check with experts whether it is real or fake.

Clearly a fake. The giveaway was this passage: "8tuSf0sq61Jm0mca".

On a real Gibson, that would be, "8tuSf0sq64in0mca".

Wow that was quick, what is a passage? I am a noob when it comes to that.

First impression...Looks good to me. More members will confirm this though.

Looks fairly legit to me. But wait for a second opinion. I'm more used to spotting fake standards. The only thing that concerns me is the Gibson Custom logo on the back of the headstock, but that may be an old one. My main concern is the angles of the pictures and the fact that there isn't a front facing picture of the whole headstock.

I'd ask for better pictures first, but so far so good.

The only reason I would tell you that is fake was if I could buy it!

Post some pics and tell us about it when you put your dirty hands on it you lucky bastard!
