I bought a second hand Gibson ES-Les Paul. I want to be sure it is no counterfeit. The serial is 11484737
At the bottom is a link to some photo´s. The guitar came with a Certificate of authenticity and a filled out Gibson gold warranty card-book .

The reason why I thought it' maybe a fake is that the details are somewhat sloppy here and there. As you can see in the pictures there is some unpainted wood in the f holes. The f holes are also somewhat rough on the edges. And the headstock has some weird glueish corners. Also the frets are a little sharp on the edges.
The guitar sounds really well and plays like a charm. And I do not really care for the details but I found it strange to find them on such an expensive instrument.


Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
