So I was searching kijiji (similar to craigslist) and I can across a 1979 gibson les paul artisan for $880. After some quick web research it seems it could be worth anywhere between 1800-2500. Does this guy just not know what he has or what?

Rule 1 of buying things on the internet - if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Well, If even it's not fake or some other stuff, I bet it has technical problems or other stuff after all.

Even if it isn't real it still looks nice, ask him to send yo ua picture of the serial number and then look that up to see if it's real or not.

Real Gibby or not, if that's the actual guitar, it might be worth it for looks alone. If its real, you got a steal. If its a fake, use it as a fix up project.
