Authenticity of Gibson Les Paul Standard 2008


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I’m about to get a pre-owned LP standard 2008 model. I’m told that it’s a 2008 version made in 2009. I need help in identifying if the guitar is genuine.


Here is a link posted by the seller



Pictures of the input jack and back of headstock that I’ve requested from the guy

By the serial number, it was made at the Gibson plant in Nashville, TN on April 27th, 2009.

Production Number: 31.


I'm not that sharp on factory features, so I had to do some research to determine that those Grover locking tuners are indeed the standard items for that model, and not after-market.

They are legit, as is the Neutrik jack socket, which kind of threw me when I first looked at that photo.


The guitar looks authentic.
