ok... what are peoples opinions on this?

i know i dont know much about the rules of how a "custom" guitar works but you cant order a custom les paul that comes out looking like an SG...


so is it fake and if so is it legal to advertise it in the way that they are?

It depends...Early SG's were called Les Paul Customs...

SGs used to be called Les Pauls till Les had his name taken off of them because he didn't like them. So they were renamed. That's a total rip for that Epi though.

Yeah...I know as of the moment...Gibson is doing a version under that name but I don't know if they are (are ever have) done one in an sg...looks pretty similar though...

Check the headstock, people. It's an Epiphone.

And epiphone handles all of gibson's reissues. So your point?

Gibson handles all of Gibson's reissues. My point is that is is just an Epiphone version of the old Gibson 61 Les Paul Custom. It isn't fake. It is what it is. The price being asked is about right. As long as it isn't a knock-off of an Epi, there's nothing deceptive about the ad.

its a re-issue of a 1961 Les Paul custom. it's legit and was only made for that year. after that les had his name taken off and it was renamed SG
