Strange serial number is it fake?

Recommended Posts

I have seen a "custom LP" for sale with the serial MS 0808 I'm guessing nthis is a fake? If not would be interested as it's a good price

It's a black beauty style done of the elements look correct but then the bridge and other items don't. Can find any info on serial numbers starting with MS so thought it may be suspect

Chris, 

Try right-clicking on each of the photos that you see on the eBay or Craigslist advert, and select, "Copy Image Address". 

Then come back here to post, and right-click again, selecting, "Paste" for each image address. 

The images will display, sir.

🙂

The 'MS' prefix is worrisome, for sure. 

I have never heard of such a thing. 

Nor has Gibson, apparently.

There are various s/ns that are not covered by that number search (like ME and some of the reissues), so that doesn't mean Gibson never heard of it or it is not legit.  Will take some investigation.  I would start by calling or writing Gibson and go from there.

Well of course. 

But it would be a boring web forum if we rubber-stamped every single web forum query  into authenticity with:
