So I found this 1945 Gibby L5 at a completely laughable price on Craigslist? It's so cheap I'm very suspicious. Does it look legit to you guys?

For what he wants for it I'm pretty sure I want it either way. Just would like to know what I got.

Read the ad. The only thing strange is the slanted logo. It's also not illegal to buy counterfeit goods as long as you're doing it in good faith.

...replacement Gibson truss rod cover... ...This Guitar was restored in 1978 with a satin finish...

He's seems to be honest and probably knows that there won't be a huge buyer draw in Hawaii. I do think it's amusing that he says "no major issues" followed by "the binding and fretboard need to be replaced."

That said, it certainly looks like a real (but also really beat up) to me, but for $75 or so, who cares? You might as well go look at it. I'd only buy it if you actually plan on putting a few hundred dollars into it to make it useful again.

Ehh, as nice as it looks, I can't afford it now that someone has offered what it's worth

Thanks anyways, it's been a fun venture.
