Hopefully I can hijack this thread. I did some searching and couldnt find the right thread. Hopefully Im not too much of a noob.
Ive had a deal come at me for a 91 Custom Alpine white. This is a guitar that I have always wanted, but I am concerned that it is a fake:

Why is the "i" not dotted? And Gibson just looks off to me, but I am no expert and thats why I am here.


Other pics:




Trying to get a pic of the serial number as well.

Yeah that one is legit aswell. Somebody changed the bridge to an ABR1.

but what about what Thumpalumpacus said about the passage?

I was just teasing, bud ... when I first saw this thread, your OP was literally two screens-full of "PUI-034ufw78J:qw/"-type coding, and no pics.

For what it's worth, that's a nice Custom there. Hope you're able to get it.

About the white Custom, it's hard to tell, but I think it's okay.

The i was dotted when it left the factory.....it isn't now. Could be any number of reasons, but you can see the spot where it used to be.
