Serial/authenticity check

Recommended Posts

Hello all and welcome to the Forums!

 

Just by a serial number it is impossible to verify the authencity of a guitar. Counterfeiters use real serial numbers.

 

Instead, please post some pictures, so the Grand Jury of the Forums can verify them for You.

 

Best wishes... Bence

Illegal counterfeit. The counterfeiters have used this same serial number and similar numbers over and over on different fake instruments.

 

Since you knew this serial number was used multiple times, could you post a list of serial numbers that you are aware of that have been used multiple times?

I need help I think it’s fake 02005559

What exactly do you want help with? If you haven't bought it and suspect its a fake walk away and report it to Gibson's site.  If you bought  and suspect a fake, report it to Gibson on their site, and take it back if you can.  If its fake and you own it, I'm sorry to tell you it may all  be over but the crying.

OK, I did not read every post in this thread, so did you buy a guitar and  and now suspect its a fake. Like I said if you suspect its a fake and bought it, and it is chances are your stuck with it. If you own the guitar post pics of the headstock serial number and other pics of the guitar and we will  more that likely be able to tell you. If you got duped that's your fault, not mine.  You think Gibson is gonna give you a free one if you bought a fake? Enjoy your guitar. 

I'm 53 and I have owed Gibson's since I was 16.  I know and many on this forum know what fakes look like but we need pics. I could tell you about half a dozen or more things to look for, but pics really make it hit home. 

I fed you no line in my original post, and was not being a wise-@ss.  What exactly would you like us to do if YOU bought a fake Gibby.  All we can do look and give our best judgment.
