    Chibson?

    ebay item 273312520161. For sale in Brighton UK. The seller has recently had a neutral feedback "seller withdrew" on a Les Paul Custom. Looks Chibson to me, what ya' think.

    For those of us who aren't at the top of the class at the Bletchley Park school of guitar spotting, what in that photo screams Chibson?

    Fret board ! and I did not look past the board .
    Ive never confused owning a bunch of high end gear with being some kind of a guitar player I'm a hack and I love guitars !

    The Myth: Neat wiring layouts always equate to great-sounding amps.

    The Myth: If I would have lived with MOM & mooched till I was 48 I would play like Clapton !
    Think about it
    won't you ...... Please !

    Interesting to note that it is listed as "Les Paul Guitar Black". The word Gibson does not appear anywhere in the listing - I think the seller knows exactly what it is, or more to the point what it isn't!

    The bridge with slots to adjust the height is a common one.
    Also, the truss rod cover is not shaped like a real Gibson.

    Why would you expect the seller to reply? They are too busy making sales and profit dollars!

    Whole headstock is a joke, especially the diamond.

    The slotted bridge adjustment screw have typically been the easiest thing to spot, but some fakes are better there now. This guitar has so many things wrong with it and is very obviously a fake, though I've seen other guitars recently that are harder to spot for the casual Les Paul fan. The best thing is to check in here.
