Looks like one buyer backed out on this one. I asked for straight on shot of the headstock, to which he said "he'd already maxed out his photos". Back is wrong color for a 2011. Truss rod cover looks like it's sitting on the nut. No case. Ignored question about request for paperwork and my concern about a Chibson. Fake?

First post here y'all! I signed up to shame this craigslist post in Fort Wayne Indiana, but he quickly removed his ad when i confronted him. I love this forum and have been a long time reader, keep it up!

Anyone have any intel about people selling "new" Les Pauls, on e-bay but not being Gibson dealers? Where can they get so many "new" ones if they are not Gibson dealers?

I HATE cheaters :( What are some the signs that lead you to say "obvious fake Chinese copy"?

ON SECOND THOUGHT, I looked closer at the headstock. Say no more, and mine is an untrained eye.
Such an obvious fake that it is just a joke, wrong switch and tip, incorrect fake Bigsby for starters.

Reported to Ebay.

EXCELLENT. I'm glad you reported it to flea-bay. Sad thing is, it is still up. I am embarrassed that my eye is not as good as yours :(

I have been gassing for a 335 for some time now and have tried a few. This 333 has appeared, and although it ain't a 335, they do get good press. I have asked a few questions and am waiting for responses.....does this look real?

Lack of wear and tear is hardly evidence of anything, I have seen 40 year old closet queens in immaculate condition.

2015.chero or Cherokee Thomas Do not buy anything from him. Bought a Les Paul Standard on Ebay, turned out it was another persons guitar on Ebay. Got the money and hauled butt. Tied my money up for at least 17 days. Never have been scammed before but live and learn.
