I recently bought a brand new Epiphone Les Paul Standard online and I dont have any idea how to authenticate it.

Since this is my first Epiphone I want to make sure that I got a real one.

Please help me even an opinion will make my mind clear thank you in advance!!! [thumbup]

Looks nice.

 

First question, the answer to which could put your concerns to rest in a moment, is very simple:

 

Where did you get it from?

 

 

The dealer in which I bought my guitar sells lot of guitars mostly epiphone,squier and phoebus guitars.

Also they sell authentic Gibson guitars...

 

My problem is that when I heard that my guitar was made in china I started to doubt [mellow]

I test it myself and it sounds great but I`m new to guitars so I can`t tell yet which is really good [smile]

Looks real to me.

They're all made at Epiphone’s Gibson Qingdao factory near Qingdao, China. All Epiphones, all the time. By this time, they're getting pretty darn good at making guitars. From my experience, anyway.

it was made April 13 at the DaeWon or Unsung factory in China

 

I defer to your superior wisdom.

I swear I saw somewhere all Epis were coming out of Qingdao. Maybe what I saw was 'Qingdao makes all Epis,' meaning they make only Epis.

So the "20" in chrono's serial number after the date apparently doesn't just refer to a specific factory?
