Some outfit in China probably. At least the seller is trying to be honest (but his asking price is insane for what he's selling). But what happens if someone buys it and flips it to someone for a higher price as "the real thing"?

He listed it last week for 700. I know it's way over priced and I feel kinda bad for the guy but if he looks at that and looks at a legit LP and can't tell the difference than I feel sorry for him.

I'm not good at Gibson fakes but those knobs look pretty sweet to me.

I'm not an expert either. Con artists count on that I guess. I know some of the "indicators" but I could possibly get fooled by a decent fake.

I see the headstock now, but I'm no good at the tailpiece thing. Should email the guy and offer to burn the thing for him.

It's a Chinese fake. Nothing "Replica" about that thing.
