Gibson Corvus modded or fake?

Saw this, can't decide, anyone help me on this? If it's real, and modded hows that affect value? If its real and not modded, any clue what this is? Ty

It's definitely a Gibson, given the serial number.

Looking at Wikipedia I guess it's a Corvus III, with a modification, the humbucker in the bridge position.

I'd say it's real.

Chibsons have real serials too. But I'd prefer modded real. How would modded affect value

I can't imagine anyone would ever bother faking a Corvus...

As a general rule (unless the value of the mods greatly exceeds the value of the original guitar) it'll be worth less than if it was all-original.

I never saw a Corvus that wasn't a hardtail; either a T.O.M. or one of those Schaller bridge and T.O.M. tailpieces. As far as I know, the Corvus has acquired absolutely no collector value, as all Gibson fans universally hated the thing when it was released.

The Guitardater Project cannot verify the authenticity of ANY Guitar, this site is simply meant as a tool to satisfy the curiosity of guitar enthusiasts. This website possesses NO DATABASE of guitars made by manufactures, instead simple serial code patterns that are available on this site and in the wider guitar community are used. It follows that potential scammers can use this knowledge to try to trick unsuspecting buyers. If you have any doubts as to a guitars’ authenticity please contact the guitar manufacturer before your purchase.

Lord, that guitar was just sinfully ugly!



The advert was enough to keep me from touching one!
