Hoping some one can help me tell wether this Gibson Les Paul Custom guitar is real or fake? I have been told by someone that it maybe fake thats why im asking on this forum. Has had a headstock repair, finished professionally
Year: 1971
Serial number: 114280

The guys asking $2400 us dollars if its real would this be a good deal even with a headstock/neck break??

Thanks in advance.

refretted, and the break mean I find that price high.
Looks real to me but I am no expert.

Real, refret, wrong bridge. It could be a '71 - '74.... Ask for the pot codes.

Real. But I don't buy headstock repairs unless they are willing to give the guitar away.

If a headstock repair is done professionally and correctly, I see nothing wrong with it. Hell, the only reason I could afford my 74 20th anny custom was because it has a HS repair.

Real, but too expensive according to headstock repair and very unoriginal condition.

Way to expensive IMO. I'd pass without thinking twice
