*Gasp!*

Its a copy, i took a look at the first pic and knew immediatly it wasnt genuin, just from the cut away, its too sharp.

Still a very nice copy. Dont smash it

EDIT: Also on the second pic you can see the tone and volume controls, iv never seen those particular ones used on any Gibson or Epipihone, also if it was a gibson, the wood texture on the top would look different, the guitar seems to have an alder top (which isnt bad)

Also on the 3rd pic i noticed it has a bolt-on neck, only one variety of LP has one like that and thats the Epi 100.

What are those little manuals its come with, because they say Gibson on them, might be able to get an answer in there as to what exactly the guitar is... yet the guitar shows no such insignia. It aint gonna be a Gibson, they always put their name on their guitars.

Fellows. It is not a gibson. Out of question. It's a bolt-on neck.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

What a scam, I just did a n00b eBay mistake by bidding some cash on this BEFORE I checked with you always-brilliant people first

So it's a Gibson/Baldwin, listed at the Gibson official site as an officially marketed Gibson Les Paul, but it's their $100 "Squier", more or less - it looks like these are exclusively sold in some Best Buy stores in the US, and sometimes can be had for $100. I'll end up with the fret buzz and bad pickup tone that you get for this price guitar, but at least can be happy about the look and style.

Grr, now I will have THREE entry-level guitars...

Why don't you just retract your bid?
Seriously, I'm in the band.
#15
OK, I emailed the seller to ask to allow a retraction (since it's under 12 hours until the bids close), but luckily somebody just outbid my high bid, so I'm out of the woods on this one - thanks for the quick help and advice, I owe you a round!

It's one of the new Gibson line designed for Wal Mart. It's a piece of shìt.

Always research something like that before bidding.

Is it just me or does it have a maple neck

They've been selling those at best buy for several years, they suck massive dick. Seriously, I've played one there before when I had nothing to do ( i actually set it up replaced strings etc. no joke!) it's worse than any squire ive played, and the frets are like razorblades?

How much was your bid for? And was shipping from beijing like 225 dollars?

Also, you can tell it's not a gibson because they all come in cases, not inside paperboard boxes!

Well, see, I haven't been playing a long time, hence why I spend time with a knowledgeable userbase such as UG and try to ask questions when I need advice, and try to read and soak up as much knowledge as I can.
