A friend of mine asked me to give him my thoughts on a Les Paul he purchased a couple of years ago. I picked it up today to look it over, and I’m convinced it’s fake. I included some pics of things that stand out to me as it being bogus. Screw heads on bridge, no added wings on sides of headstock, serial number looks routed not stamped. In addition there’s not truss rod nut under the cover and the pot cavity looks like it was chiseled out with a screwdriver. I’d much rather tell him some knowledgeable experts on a Les Paul forum believe it’s fake, than to just give him my opinion. Thanks!
