Epiphone slash original or fake ?

Hi !

 

This is the first time that I post in here and I'm doing it because I'm about to buy an used epiphone les paul slash signature for about 300 euro but I'm not very sure about its quality. I would like to know if anyone, more expert than me can help to discover if this is a original guitar or a fake one. Here there are some photos.

It doesnt look ok...

 

The Epiphone Slash's I have seen have the new Epi Custom logo on the back of the headstock! This one doesnt... Nice guitar though... I would alsp say the back of it is not dark enough..

 

They also come with the Slash hard case..

Do people tend to fake Epi's tho?

 

I can see the reason in faking £3000 guitar' date=' but a £250 one?[/quote']

 

Yes,

 

There were alot of fake Slash's going around as these Epi's go for good money!

The bottom line though... the logo is missing...

 

All Epi's have 3 screw TRC's

Thanks to all of you for all this answers, honesty those are exactly my same thoughts about this guitar, indeed the back is too light to be a slash series and the truscross is not origianl ...probably this is a normale epi les paul standard with the logo changed but I have also some other doubt that It could a completle fake.

Anyway I don't think that I'm going to buy this for 300 euro....the risk is clearly too high...

My Guess is it is an Epiphone' date=' But someone wanted "More money" so they changed a few bits and tried to pass it off as a Slash.

 

Just sayin.[/quote']

 

So you both says that this is an original epiphone, it's just and old versione of the slash signaure ?? honestly I have never seen one like this... If you see properly the written "les Paul" is too small from the original one and also the written slash has a different font style.

You can see here the differences:
