I was fooled for a minute but then I noticed that horn looked a little too sharp to be a real Gibson. Busted!

We need one of these to end up in the hands of one of MLPs quality control LEOs and go over this with their macro lens and give it their full attention..... and create a 40 page thread on it.

I forgot the purple print...... I’m just being an ass.....excuse me I hear my wife calling me.

:rofl:

A little too sharp?

That looks like an LTD with a freaky ass neck and a Gibson headstock to me. Not even close to looking authentic.

They forget to put the ESP decal. Or an angry employee to get revenge.

My sarcasm didn’t hit home I guess.

I guess. I think it was the lack of anything indicating or coming across as sarcasm that did it.
One clue might have been how long I’ve been hanging around this forum.

Out of interest, how much was the Joker asking for it?

So obviously fake it isn't even funny. Wonky headstock shape. Garbage inlays on the headstock. Truss rod cover printed upside down. (OK for a lefty, maybe...) Body shape totally wrong. That sharp tipped Florentine cutaway. Metric hardware. Custom style binding on the headstock...but ONLY on the headstock. Standard style on neck and body.

I give that a zero for effort. And it's the most obviously fake Chibson I've ever seen bar none.

This is a fake. Wrong body, wrong neck, ... everything is wrong.

Yet it appears someone is in the process of 'upgrading' it.....
