If it was vintage the chrome hardware would show a similar amount of ageing, This guitar doesn't show that. Also the checking is too uniform. Again the headstock checking is too uniform plus the Gibson inlay stands out more and looks much newer. Another place to check is the guy from Trogly's Guitar Show. He is very knowledgeable on Gibsons and also has experience with fakes. You say the seller doesn't know much about it. That's probably because he knows it's a fake and doesn't want to answer questions. No way I'd consider this guitar.
