if you can't see it - don't buy at any other places than authorized shops....

Hmmm...Ok. I get it, the color. But doesn't the color fade over time or no?

Here's another one that I have reported multiple times. The seller paid £81.00 for this from a ebayer called 'rightclickgoo' who is no longer a registered user because they were selling fake goods. Gibson don't seem to be interested but maybe they would take notice if it wasn't just me who reported it.

Epiphone custom shop Les Paul Silverburst electric guitar | eBay

Other than that silly pick guard, the older logo and the truss rod cover that doesn't say 'Custom Pro' (the last two being reasonable variances), it looks exactly like my authentic Silverburst. Can you tell me what I'm missing?

Thank you Peter.

Have a look at the stop bar studs too.

Plus, the current seller of this item paid £81.00 for this as a brand new guitar from an ebay seller who is now banned for selling fake goods.

Nope. Older logo? I like it better. Cream binding?Could be the light Rear logo in gold? No 'PRO' on the truss rod cover? I've seen 'em like that It could just be from an earlier production run. Work with me here... I'm trying to understand this.

Certainly. Have a look at the shape of the tuner washers.

What about the size of the TRC
and the size of the tuner-washers ?
the complete headstock shape/size is different/shorter

look where the e-tuners are located

How about this one?

Because clearly I can't tell the difference. Bought this one from a guy at the McDonald's on Canal Street.
