Yup it's real..... and it's been a standard upper tier non Custom Shop model (regular USA production line) for several years..... though this one is not fake,... it is one of the most faked models besides the Les Paul Custom. Always good to check here first.

I was thinking the same back then I saw it, so, I found it out, and this is how

From the jack cavity! you see that it's larger than standard plate right? That's how
Yup.... and this guitar is hollow between two pieces of maple you can also get access through the pickup routes for the toggle switch.

It's real (at least the pictures are of a real Supreme). I have a twin made in 2008.

Fun facts:
The case has an extra latch
The shroud is not attached to the case.
The frets are gold (not real gold - just the color)

question this is also a 2008. is it ebony or richlite fingerboard? seems like confusion on this front.

ebony in 2008

Richlite wasn't used on any model Gibson till 2012.

Looks real. Tell tales are the headstock inlay and jack plate size. The frets are not just gold coloured. Gibson claim they are harder than normal fretwire.

Wow, it does look real. I was so ready to see the usual hideous fake that people usually post.
