Hah! Didn't even bother to check the numbers but yea, it's the same. Pretty sure that's no a Nashville number either.... Hmmmm.

WOW, Look at his little pictures in the case for the definitive answer:

"If it says les paul on the headstock, it's a real les paul."

He's ready for any naysayers.

If it says Leo Baul on the headstock...
I thought the guitar was a Chibson until I saw that in the case, and it checks out, it says 'Les Paul' on the headstock so it must be 100% totally legit

"Help me" - Then it is signed 'Les Paul' by the guitar itself, because it is a Les Paul you see, if you have any doubts about it being a Les Paul please see the helpful leaflet in the case which explains that it is in fact a real Les Paul

"Help me" makes sense, since the Chinese kidnappers would not understand what Les was writing......good catch!

Sure, it's pretty shoddy. Give Gibson another 10 years and their QC will have slumped enough that it will be even harder to tell which are copies -- or Epis, for that matter.

Bridge, tail screws, pup ring screws, knobs, and the headstock is off.
