So I found this very sexy blue burst Les Paul on Ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-G-Les-Paul-Custom-Blue-Burst-Colors-Electric-Guitar_W0QQitemZ110422941915QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item19b5b860db&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

I'm very interested in it. It looks real enough, but when I looked at shipping and stuff, it said it would be shipped from Hong Kong...so I'm thinking now that it's an over priced rip off...

Help! Is this guitar a real Les Paul? If not, is it any good, or is it probably crap?
Om nom nom nom!

there was a thread about the same ebay seller who was selling another Les paul for cheap.

Sums up whisky perfectly

I wouldn't buy it. The truss rod cover is weird. The logo doesn't seem to be inlayed, and they flipped around the guitar probably to hide any flaws in the shape.

We just dealt with a thread like this last night. It's being sold from the same ebay user also, we ruled that one as a fake, so this One is too, notice the body wood. Les Pauls are all mahogany, not mahogany/basswood. This one looks slightly more legit though compared to the other one. But still a fake.

EDIT: heres the thread:

Unite the discount comparison of the conveyance

Can search postage price in the underneath

They put g instead of gibson in the title so it doesn't get flagged as easily


This is before you even look at the guitar excellence in the most satisfactory advert.

Don't be stupid

They actually seem like really good knock-offs


I can buy you a rollex for $20 that looks almost identical to a real rolex, but it'll stop ticking within two weeks. Just because something looks nice does not mean that it is 'a good knockoff'

Not necessarily Good knock offs, But overall good guitars for the price. And I was Wondering, isn't that counterfeiting against gibson and epi? So can't they be sued big time?

no, they won't be. Buy a fucking agile or at least something with some kind of brand name hardware, the correct wood, etc.

Yes, they can. It takes a while to find them, get their host-country to arrest them, etc.

Thanks for the responses guys. My friend found the Zakk Wylde copy and was going to by it immediately. I showed him this thread and that stopped him. I'm just going to get an Agile since I want a good, cheap, Les Paul style guitar, and tell my friend to save up for a Wylde sig.
Om nom nom nom!

True.

So, could any one of us just call up gibson and report these guys? I think the number is 1-800-4GIBSON
