So some guy is selling black beauty's on ebay for around 300. Heres a link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160264685209&_trksid=p3907.m32&_trkparms=tab%3DWatching

now, each post he makes he uses a different account, same pictures, and each account has a different location. Now, 2 people left feedback saying good seller, enjoyed the item on 1 of his account (not this one).. But I can't really tell if its the real deal or just a fake.

Any opinion?

Looks legit. Get the serial number.

By the way, it's an Epiphone, not a Gibson. That's probably why it's cheap.

The one you linked has 0 feedback + you have doubts. It's best to avoid it, an opinion.

listen to this guy, as i'm saying the exact same thing
also, he/she has a question mark next to everything he/she says it has: ?22 frets etc
plus, the way they've done the pictures is stupid

in one of his picks he blocks out the serial number (the one of the back of the headstock). so i think its a scam

The guitar seems legit. i compared it to my epiphone custom and everything's the same (except his is a 3 pu black beaty and mine's a silverburst).

It looks legit, and it probably is only because of the fact that that's the current bid price. It's not the buy it now price. By the time the bid gets done it'll probably have gone for around/at least double what it's at right now.

Hard to believe but they do make knockoff copies of even cheap guitars now. The chinese will go to great lengths to make a copy. Makes you wonder why they dont put the effort into actually making nice guitars. The serial number blocked out isnt unusual its gotten to the point that sellers will copy other guitars serial numbers. But as he is supposedly selling a new guitar for less than what the guitar sells for new unless hes a real nice guy and likes losing money on everything he sells its gonna be a scam or knock off. I wouldnt doubt that the 2 feedbacks are from himself or friends to make it look more legit.

very possible

Hes not selling them for 300.. thats what the current bid is. It will probably fetch around 400-450. That's average price for a Epiphone Black Beauty. Looks legit to me.

If it's a Chinese copy, they sure did one hell of a job. The guitar looks real to me. The fact they blocked out the serial number means they're either too lazy to take pics of every single guitar or they're all stolen.

oh yeah? well larry king the slayer guitarist owns bc rich guitars. (i think)

Ok This is how I can tell is faker than fake.

1. Why is the Serial number blocked out if your taking individual guitars pics you should leave it in so you can compare when you get it.

2. why didn't he show the headstock atleast the front side to see the name Because it could say anything

a log with 6 pieces of yarn would be solid competition for it
