Truss rod cover printed upside down. (OK for a lefty, maybe...)
Well if it was written in Chinese i wouldn't be able to tell if it's right side up......... I am sure it's the same for the poor chinese person reading english...... an innocent mistake.

Wait, what? I admit I've been having trouble remembering what day it is after being cooped up so long during the pandemic, but IS IT REALLY THE FIRST OF APRIL ALREADY????

I know a guy who has a very similar one.. I think it was just in different color but same neck and fretboard.. he knows it is fake but swears it is better than Gibsons he played (he owns a guitar shop)... I didn’t even bother trying it !

what you have there is a glorious example of everything that isn't a real Gibson Les Paul :)

Fake from head to toe :)

Might make a good "gigging" guitar. Insure it for 5K & hope it gets stolen!

not a gibson

and a $100 fine will be imposed by MLP for showing toes in photos

:rofl:
Yeah. More information than required.

Posters are paying too much attention to the instrument & not enough to the
little pink cushion thing printed w/ butterflies or flowers.

That swag item was included on only a few LP Customs made-to-order by celebrities
whose names to this day, have been kept under wraps by Gibson Inc.

This is a very rare guitar - made even more valuable by the swag. That's what gives it away.

Yep fake, screws in tune o matic bridge are slotted for a screwdriver, diamond logo is too low on headstock, and the word gibson is just completely wrong; fuzzy half done truss cover is wrong and it is against the nut. i could probably find more. but i'm so sick of seeing these fake gibsons and knowing soimeone out there was duped by one of the thieves selling them into buying one of these because they didn't know better.

The guitar isn't even resting on the "swag"...... see the shadow of the neck is completely off the pillow..... there is something directly under the headstock propping it up...... maybe more "swag"??..... but those toes..... are there two right feet?.......:rofl:

They didn't have a picture, so I think that this one was faked from someone's memory. That bad.
