Wouldn't it be really very hard to judge authenticity from photos, without the instrument in your hands?I... and sent me some photos. I have my doubts about its authenticity but haven't made up my mind yet.
(I'm probably bitter right now because I just wasted 4 hours going to look at a woodworking machine that looked OK in the high-res photos, but when I got there it was far more abused and dirty than I could have imagined!)
And even then, as Ian C. Bishop said all those years ago, there are custom guitar builders who can build a Gibson just as well as Gibson can build a Gibson. One or two of those people are on this forum!
Given the likely huge sum that guitar would be worth if it were genuine, the temptation to attempt a forgery must be pretty strong
