Many of us can tell buy THAT alone without even seeing a serial #.

 

Sometimes the serial #s aren't stamped hard enough to leave a very good impression, but a good angled shot with A LOT of light should reveal at least some detail of the impression.

Believe me, someone trying to phone is the least of your problems if they get a hold of your phone number.

 

Thanks Mods.

need more pics, but i don't see anything yet that convinces me that Custom is fake.

tuners are correct, headstock is close enough to the real variations. Gibson inlay looks reasonable.

T/R cover looks correct. frets are about right. can't tell about the body though....

don't put much stock in the case. guitar cases get damaged, lost, stolen and replaced all the time.

of course so do the guitars...

I use to do it back then when the service was free...now u can either pay for it or download it...but it takes to much room.

Every phone that has internet has a proxy that traces back to the phone number and ISP, you can easily hide it like I do by easily adjusting the settings.

 

Well back to topic, I have people saying fake and others saying real......... I didnt get more pictures today due to him not bringing it, sorry Ill try to get some later on.

I'm telling you beyond ANY shaddow of a doubt! It's 100% real!

 

Believe me, I've been dealing with LPs my WHOLE life (27 years), and know ALL of them like the back of my hand.

 

Here's a '72 LP Custom (which I believe is what's in the pics)

And here's a Headstock pic of an early '70s Custom (Note: no dot above the "i")

Looks real to me...

 

 

And, both DAS and Dem00n seem to agree it is a fake SO IT MUST BE REAL.

 

 

About the lack of serial number and "made in usa" thingy... for a time they inked the SN and for a time they stamped it, so if it's an old guitar that has been played a lot it could have just faded away. The case is not a big deal if the guitar is old, gibson cases are not as durable as fender cases (which are made by SKB), so a player's guitar would need a new case after a few years of gigs and abuse.

Ya its a dude rockstar and can you take a picture of the back headstock and a full body shot of the back?
The HS pic isn't mine (I should only be so lucky), but a couple of things to look for are:

 

Back of headstock

- side "wings" (extra wood on both sides of the HS)

 

- "clean" control cavities

(Edit by Mod) I'm not being a **** saying he doesnt deserve one Im saying where the hell do you find thousands of dollars when this kid still owes people money since 2 years ago. It really doesnt make sense. Its like having a Epiphone and one day waking up with a Gibson Les Paul Supreme, makes no sense. Ill take clearer pics next time but it puzzles me a lot. It took me years before I had enough for a Gibson and I work this kid doesnt.

 

And there is absolutely no serial number anywhere and nothing on the headstock, no fading, none of that, Ill take a clearer pic but theres nothing there, its just plain, no sign of fading or anything. I checked everywhere for the serial number or Made In U.S.A stamp. And the back has 5 screws instead of 4. I cant check the cavity chamber since I dont want to take it apart nor will I think he will want me to.

Are you stupid or just not paying attention? I'm not being a **** saying he doesnt deserve one Im saying where the hell do you find thousands of dollars when this kid still owes people money since 2 years ago.

 

 

Bluemoon is not stupid, not at all.

 

Ok, maybe a little bit [-o<

 

Ok, he is a retard=d> , but still his post was about your "NO I CANT LET HIM WIN" comment. So chill out.

 

 

 

 

By the way, I took the liberty of reporting your post as abusive :)/
