Hello everyone on the forums. I'm interested buying a second guitar as an early birthday present. I was looking at a 1991 Gibson Les Paul Classic at a price of $500. All I want to know is to see if this is legit or not. The serial number is 92981360. Click here to see the page. Quick note I did not bid on it yet.

I went on Guitardaterproject and this is what came up
Your guitar was made at the
Nashville Plant, TN, USA
October 25th, 1991
Production Number: 60

I'm pretty sure its a real les paul. The owner says its a Studio but you say its a classic, studios don't have binding, classics, standards, and customs do.

and TS, bear in mind, that the auction has 3 days left, I can 100% guarantee you that it will sell for close to the 'buy it now' price.

Looks plenty real to me. Gibson fiddled with the Studio design early on. I've seen studios with full body and neck binding but with dot inlays or bound bodies etc... If you're really that concerned I'm sure a quick email to Gibson with some pictures of the guitar would clear things up.

it's been refinished.

it started life as a wine red studio. it was refinished to tobacco burst, the "binding" is probably just the sides of the maple cap like a prs.

it's very hard to tell from the shitty pictures, but it looks legit - from what i can tell. headstock is dead on studio.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

It's a Studio. He's had it refinished, says so in the ad.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

As mentioned, it's been refinished.

Second, the price is not $500. The opening bid price is $500. The reserve has also not been met.
#13
yeah, the reserve hasnt been met yet. the reserve is probably around $650ish, if i had to guess. the buy it now is 800, so it'd be stupid to set the reserve at 800 because then it defeats the purpose of the bid. back to the question, yes its legit.
