I told him the truss rod was wrong and he went off on me. This is the only pic of the truss rod.

I'm not sure how you can see the truss rod in that pic.

With the limited info in that pic, looks like a Gibson to me.

What's the link to the auction? And why is the seller so bad at taking pictures?


Wait... are we even talking about the Les Paul, here?
Yep.
Not sure if or.
If you know what I mean...

Yes, the les paul, the truss rod is cut like the chinese knock offs and the epiphone.

Not like a real gibson.

You can tell that from this?

I can't even tell if the truss-rod cover is on or off from that pic.

Heck, in that picture it looks like the nut is on backwards.


You could be right, though. And I stopped being able to spot obvious fakes when Gibson stopped having binding nibs.
Yeah, I can see the cut is just like the chibsons and the epiphones. It goes all the way down to the nut, which Gibsons don't, it has just a straight cut not like the gibsons which have a bullet shape.

Post a link to the ebay listing. Any in-focus frontal picture would probably be all it takes to know for sure if it's a fake.
It was on facebook, he took it down. After a barrage of insults.

You actually responded with that? Wow.
It is not on ebay, so this is also wrong place for the thread.
It is not selling.
It is not on facebook anymore.
All you have its a blurred, low res pic of an half hidden guitar in a rack that nobody knows what da hell it is supposed to be.
You have no better pics.
So yeah, who cares? I mean, isnt going to hurt anyone... :thumb:

It was being sold on facebook marketplace, hence why I thought it belonged, he took it off after I started the thread here. Actually it should be pretty easy to tell that isn't the LP truss rod cut, even in the lower res pic.
I care, I don't want anyone scammed paying 1900 for a counterfeit.

If you don't care about the thread you didn't have to respond.
