So, my friend has been looking around for a Les Paul for quite awhile.

And he stumbled across this. Now, obviously, it seems totally fake. Two Gibson Les Pauls for 500 dollars?

But I figured I'd come here to ask you guys about whether or not they are. It's from China, and I've seen people trying to sell Ibanez JEM's knock-offs for minimal prices.

So, what do you think? Fake? Real?

hmmm

If someone is selling a guitar for an apparent huge loss frmo china it's certain to be fake. There's no logic to selling 2 expensive guitars for less than half the price that one would cost. Also, if it says buying it will bring you "good fortune and happiness and luck and wealth", then it certainly is fake.

True, and we've considered that.

The only reason anyone would EVER sell them for that little is

A: Theyre committing suicide
B: They are going Bankrupt.

And even then, they would sell em for more.

So, based on body shape/neck/pickups/headstock, does it look legit to anyone?

If it's a fake, then they did a hell of a good job faking it.

^ if you look at these guys's feedback, you'll notice a majority of it is always from the same user. Why? they open one account. Open another, and start selling from one to to other. And also, notice the headstocks. The truss rod cover is 3 screw which i odn't think i've ever seen on a gibby.
