Hi!
I do not know much about guitars so I hope someone here can help me. I'm trying to identify the guitar in attached pictures (i.e. model, year, is it legit).
The lower sticker says: Handmade in Nashville USA. Sorry for bad pictures:(
Thanks

Several things about it concern me. Others will probably post more detail. You can start with the link below. And, email Gibson with the pics. They're usually quick in responding regarding authenticating. IMO, it's not real.

Stay away from this one.

(I actually chuckled when I saw this one, and thought of a joke along the lines of "Gibson's new Variable Alignment Tuners" but thought better of it.)

Wow! It's so close to the real thing... I could hardly tell that it's a totally fake POS. They really nailed it with the lack of binding and the McNugget shaped Studio TRC.

Totally fake, a really badly done by modern counterfeit standards.

Luckily the quality of the pictures don't matter.......they actually match the quality of the guitar. As mentioned above, this is not a Gibson.

It's a good looking FAKE! Let's see..... a Custom headstock with Standard inlays and a Studio truss rod cover? The tuners are WACKED in their position.....Nice try Chinese dudes. but NO GO!!!:lol::laugh2:

That to me looks like a real refinished studio with an awful custom decal and awful 8 dollar pickups.

All I can say is that thank god there are plenty of posters about here that actually take these threads seriously and want to save people from making a mistake.

Bad fake - not even close.



However, it's a guitar for sure. No mistaking there.
