Is this Les Paul authentic?

Recommended Posts

Yes, that is real. No doubt about it. looks like a 2007. Oh, cut those freaking string ends, it makes it look like crap. 🙂

Thank you a lot. I doubted it due to that imperfect colour in the third picture. 🙂

It is really dirty, and the fingerboard needs to be cleaned and oiled. probably would not hurt to polish the frets as well. All minor stuff really. on the nut, I would just take a pencil eraser and clean the scum off with that. The body is beautiful. You have to keep in mind it is made of wood so the finish takes differently to two separate pieces of wood. I would wipe the body down with a damp rag to get the lose scum off, then dry it and then wipe it down with Naphtha to get the deep crud off. Then polish it with Gibson guitar polish (myself, I would use polishing compound and a buffer).

oh, the difference in color is just the burst. I have one that is very similar.
