According to the serial number it is a 2005. Maybe a previous owner changed some things?

The wiring seems to be changed,
though the routing hardly got changed

I see what you mean. So besides the wiring, everything else looks alright?

i've been looking for an epiphone les paul jr in the transparent blue burst color for a while, and it seems one has shown up on ebay. but all the ones i've seen before had a black pick up ring, and part of the front of the tuner for the b string seems to missing. everything else looks good to my eyes. do you guys think anyone would go to the trouble of making a fake of such a niche colored epiphone?
here is the link to the auction:

The guitar is fine, and overpriced by at least 100%

they sold here for 100-120 Euro - NEW !

i know, but i can't find one for that price now. i didn't know about that color until they had discontinued it. :\ i have been looking for one for a while, and this is the first one i've seen for sale.

Apart from this being an obvious fake, the owner says they bought it "direct from Epiphone at Gibson online." As far as I'm aware this has never been possible? Sorry can't post pics. EE080203219.

I reported this yesterday and it was pulled by Gibson. The seller has relisted the guitar though so I reported it again.

You can't buy directly from Epiphone at Gibson online.
