I would buy that guitar purely based on how cool it looks. Not Gibson though.

Ok, guys

Its obviously a Gretsch Corvette.
What is making me mad is the way they cut the head stock to match a Gibson. Would it be that noticable if I got a Gretsch Decal, removed, repainted the headstock and Gretsch decaled the head stock?

A die hard Gretsch man would know it wasnt an original headstock, but what do ya'll think.

It's not a Gretsch Corvette. It's a copy of one, with Gibson on the headstock. So it's a fake of a fake fake. Or something.

Personally I would offer him a small sum, paint over the gibson logo and just have it for what it is. This is assuming it plays well and has pickups (or rather a pickup) worth having.

Definitely not a Gibson. It appears to be a knock-off of the Epiphone Wilshire design with a phony Gibson logo on the headstock. Gibson never made the Wilshire-style guitar. It would be an interesting addition to your collection as a curiosity piece, but only if you could get it for a very low price.
