Does this 355 look legit?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


First post here and hoping to soon once again own very nice Gibson guitar.

This is pretty much my dream guitar. I found it used for a great price, but is it legit or is it fake?  

Any comments VERY MUCH appreciated.

If it's truly your dream guitar, why wouldn't you go for it? That means there's no better guitar out there for you. Who cares if it's genuine Gibson or not? I know what you fear. I can't judge based on a few pictures, but it looks genuine to me, for what little I know about new Gibson guitars. I know more about vintage.  Thorne

Looks like one of the recent ones with the Richlite fret board.

This one looks like a legit 2009. I "thought" Gibson did not start slowly implementing / using Richlite until late 2010 and was in full swing by 2013?
