R9, is this original or a fake replica?

Hi all, I'm looking to get my first LP. I have seen this one on Reverb, it's been there a while. I have checked the serial number but it doesn't seem to be recognised. What do you all think? Is it a real deal?

Looks ok from the pix. 

And the serial looks like a typical Custom Shop serial number. I would interpret that as a 1959 model made in 2014, the 1466th guitar to come out of the Custom shop that year.

 

Or you could try contacting Gibson -

 

Also -  you could get a very nice new LP for that sort of money I think.

Good luck!
