Suspicious Les Paul for sale

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I've spotted this Gibson Les Paul that is on sale in my town. I find the tuners look like they're placed too far from the top of the headstock (where the logo is inlaid). It also lacks the Custom Shop logo (although this could be done on purpose since it sports a MOP inlay on the face plate).


Serial number is 02005563 or 02005063 (hard to tell from the pic). I've made a combo pic with those from the seller so you can provide with your input.




PS: The asking price is low (1000€). Could be explained by a non original hardcase, no COA and an urgent need of cash but I have the intuition this is a fake.

There are a few things which look very, very wrong.


The snaps are really bad quality and the distortion makes it slightly harder to tell for sure but, even so, I'd certainly avoid that one like the plague.
