I stumbled upon a guy who sells a guitar which he claims to be a gibson les paul standard for a ridicously low price.

Does this look legit to you?

Looks ok... but if he's selling cheap ask why, and ask for the serial number, so you can check on the gibson website.

Nar dont like the look of the headstock outline at all id stay away and is it my imagination or do standards have flame maple tops? Tuners look kinda fishy aswell.

Shouldn't it have something written on the headstock and on the truss rod cover like les paul and standard?

Total fake I bet. Neck looks too long, body looks to narrow, headstock looks outta proportion too... just me looking at a picture though. Best bet is to actually inspect it in person. And get the serial like MiG_853 says

Thats a fake.
+ it looks like the neck is bowed out like mad, dno if you guys can see that.
+ its 25'5 scale by the looks of things.

It's a fake. No guitar on Gibson's website is called a Les Paul Standard and has that coloring (besides Epiphones, but this little fake has 'Gibson' on the headstock). Additionally, as Dio10101 said, all the Gibson guitars have 2 screws on the truss rod cover.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

Its a total fake. Reasons?

Truss Rod cover has 3 screws, a USA gibson has 2 screws. The headstock is the complete giveaway that its a fake. It doesn't say "Les Paul Model" in the middle of the headstock

if you can, try and go play it. If it sounds and feels good, and isn't a piece o crap, buy it. Just cause its not a REAL gibson doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it.

Vol and tone knobs also aren't parallel with the neck by the looks of it.

As long as you didn't make it, or distribute it.

As far as I know =O

That would be incorrect sir, owning contraband is a federal crime in the US.

its an obvious fake, the knobs dont line up right and the truss rod cover doesnt have the gibson logo as well as the headstock missing the Les Paul logo. 3 screws on the truss rod cover, and the finish doesnt have the same beauty as a actual gibson les paul finish.
