Can't tell what manufacturer it is from those pics.

But it is definitely a Les Paul copy

The binding is definitely not Gibson or Epiphone.

Need better, closer pics.

For $100 though, I doubt it's an actual Gibson. When it comes to stuff online, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Buyer beware!

yes but only if the seller knows what they truly have the uneducated seller might take pics like this...praying its an old ass LP

It's a LP, the body shape is kind of obvious.

As to what manufacturer, only someone who has either super-human-power eyes or knows the intracacies of LPs would be able to tell.

It's some kind of knock off most likely, but I doubt that it's a gibson.

It's a Les Paul, yes. But definitely not one of the good ones. The seller would have a massive pic showing off the headstock with the "Gibson" logo, to be honest. Epiphone, at best. E-mail the seller, asking for a pic of the headstock.

Guys, it's not even an Epiphone. The Epiphone LP Customs still have the 5 layer binding that is one of the hallmarks of all the LP customs. This one has a one piece binding that that isn't prevalent from the top so it's obviously a knock off of some sort. This means it can not be a Les Paul Model as "Les Paul Model" is a trademark owned by Gibson.

it might be an edwards..

those look allot like gibsons

Would be asking for a lot more if that were the case.

Well, one thing it has going for it is that it has nice big neck inlays. A lot of cheapo knock-offs won't get you such things. I'd say it's an Epi. And, even so, there's nothing wrong with that.
#18
Ask for some better pictures, serial number, headstock , year of manufacture, I doubt for 100 dollars its a gibson or even epiphone.. let the seller tell you, but be careful there are a lot of cheap copy crappy ones out there..
#19
It's not even an Epi methinks ... small as the pic is, the centre graphic on the headstock is to small and the binding looks to thick. Most like your no name bolt on, maybe an old Hondo or something.
#20
Could be anything, all you guys are too quick to say "It's not a gibson, it's probably shiit"..

Yes it's probably not a Gibsonbut it could still be a great bargain. Could be an MIJ Burny, Ibanez, Greco, Epiphone and the guy has had it ages and just thinks it's old so it's not worth much.. I would GLADLY take any of them over any LP Gibson has made in about the last 20years.

Just email the dude and ask for pics of the headstock.

This means it can not be a Les Paul Model as "Les Paul Model" is a trademark owned by Gibson.


This is stupid.. "If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck.. it's a duck" .. no matter who owns the trademark.

Gibson LP Customs have top AND back binding. I see no back binding, yet I see the custom-style block inlays, pickguard, knobs, and I THINK I see a diamond headstock inlay.
but Customs come with gold hardware, and the hardware on this one is nickel or chrome.

I doubt it's a Gibson, but maybe he changed the hardware, and maybe its some ****ty version that had no back binding at the era, who knows.

Rule of life.
If it sounds too good to be true, it's because it (99%) is. I did prove this wrong though, when I bought a barely used B-52 AT-412 for $150.

Nobody would let a Gibson go for that cheap, not even the stupidest of people. It's probably a no-name.
Main gear (For complete list, see profile):
Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-top
Basswood Telecaster, 2 single-sized HB's, both split.
Epiphone Valve Junior

Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.

the cut out looks like it comes to a point instead of reounded like the epi or gibson. my geuss is a austin. i have one and they aren't half bad. i believe its a set neck it its a austin as well judging by the inlays. the bolt ons had dot inlays until 06. now all are neck thru.

theres no way in HELL thats an edwards, the shape of the cutaway is off, it looks like a rondo, theres no way its an epiphone either for again the same reason that the cutaway looks a lot diff to me, secondly no epiphone or edwards would be sold for 100$
