Is this legit? gibson les paul custom plus

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm Nicolò and i'm going to buy a les paul custom plus of 1993, but I'm not sure if it is legit ( maybe a fake, a conversion or ... )

There are some modifications on the guitar, a third pickup, nickel hardware etc...

My dubts:

The logo, B and O not open

The block inlay, are not centered with frets

What do you think?

Thank you

Not sure about the serial number. There aren't any online serial number lookup websites for Gibson Customs. On the one hand, I have a '93 Gibson Nighthawk that has an 8 digit serial number so it looks correct from that point of view, on the other hand, I was under the impression that Gibson Custom Shop serial numbers were different from 'standard' Gibson models so I don't know. All I can say is, it seems 'off' to me so if I were thinking about buying it, I would get in touch with Gibson and give them the serial number and see what they say. Obviously, present circumstances mean you probably won't get a response very soon.
