Most 2014 models should have a 120th anniversary banner on the 12th inlay

That truss-rod cover is a bit concerning too, right?   I don't remember Gibson ever doing that.  But maybe the original owner changed it out for an aftermarket?

I think a few of the parts have been changed. I was mostly concerned about the Bridge. Is it ABR OR Nashville?

I would avoid.

The Serial Number is Legit. It’s now more about figuring out which Model This is.

Not all.  Should be pretty simple:  Call or write Gibson with s/n.  They can tell you exactly what it is.

I think they are at home Tele-making guitars.

Could be.  Maybe they'll just send it to you in pieces parts, and let you assemble it.

It is in Fact Legit. I Spoke to Gibson Customer service at length this morning. It was part of a Run they did for GC. The Tuners are not original, The Pickguard is not original The Pickup Covers are not Original & The Truss Rod Cover has Stickers on it. I'll Replace all of that and put it back to stock. I got a GREAT Deal on it & should be delivered to my Job Next Week.

I have seen those truss rod covers before. I once saw one very similar guitar. I can't remember the name, but it is definitely not very common, but it is an original truss rod cover as far as I know.
