Sorry if i'm breaking some rules about asking for fake confirmations, I couldn't see anything about it, but just want your opinions in this one. The seller says its a 2006 apparently, and the bridge looks good but the lack of nibs bothers me... Do you think it's legit? Cheers

Looks legitimate to me.

Signs I'm basing this on are the bridge posts are not slotted, the horn looks good, and the tailpiece screwheads appear flat. The truss rod cover is positioned correctly.

You don't often see TP6 tailpieces on counterfeits either, though not saying that it's not possible.

Nice looking guitar.

Cheers. Possibly a refret?

Looks like a legit one to me. As you say may well have been refretted.

The headstock is real, the body looks proportioned correctly. I will be convinced 100% by seeing inside the p/u cavities.
This could be some luthier's AFD project.

I'm not good at spotting fakes, but see if the seller will give you the S/N, then contact Gibson Customer Service to see if they have a record of it. They'll even let you know what color it should be.


Good luck!

Definitely looks legit. Looks like its simply been refretted with bigger frets. Not a big fan of the TP-6 but it can be replaced....
