Dont see why it wouldnt be real....

Any fake would still pretty much cost as much as buying that, so the guy would have nothing to gain.

Dude seriously...at that price range, you cant expect the best. A new epiphone wont play AMAZING either, but it looks like its in real good condition.

You get what you pay for

Dude, I'm 90% sure it's real - and no the shop one won't play better - the only difference may be they may pay it more attention as a shop often deals a lot less than the ebay seller will - they'll be a big warehouse that's why they can sell so cheap

enjoy it anyways it looks good.

All i m saying is that at that price range, theres not many things that can go bad on a guitar. Its not like its a 2000 dollar instrument that went bad cause people ****ed with the truss rod over the years you know?

It looks good cosmetically, and pickup wise and thats basically what you d get from it new. Its not going to feel FANTASTIC in your hands

To me it was in Pounds.. that may be cause im from the UK..

BTW: On eBay.. FEEDBACK is your friend.. check it out

BTW x2: This is nothing to with GB&C so this may be moved.

EDIT: one more thing I noticed: the same seller has bids for the same guitar (well same model) so you should bid on that until it gets close to the price - if it does then just do the buy it now one.

because no one buys gibsons because they're so expensive, and the fact it's very easy to tell if it's a fake

The number of idiotic responses to this thread are so overwhelming that I cannot even began to address them properly. Thankfully, there is no need because this thread has nothing to do with building or customizing and therefore does not belong in the GB&C subforum.
