I'm having a hard time believing this is true, because even if the person who sold you guitar doesn't know jack about them, he should know quite a bit about spending £1800 or however much they are over. I have a feeling it's just an Epi Special II with a Gibson truss rod cover.

But if you did get a real Gibson, congrats.

We'll need pics with a serial number to be sure you aren't shitting us.

Now you just need a decent amp.

^^haha, does it say baldwin on it too?


just messing TS i hope it's worth 10 grand, but honestly, pics or it's a ham sandwich.

I have nothing to take pics with at the moment. Im pretty sure it is a real gibson. I know for deffo it has gibson pickups because i checked at it has the logo on the back. I'll be a little disapointed if it isnt a real Gibson, but it plays real well and blows my Ibanez out of the water, so for £60 I wont be that bothered.

You can always just tell us the serial number on the back.

But like you said, whether or not it's a real Gibson, it's probably a great deal.

On a real Gibson does the serial number go down the headstock? Ive looked at pics and they dont and mine does . I think its a lemon tbh with you. Still plays really nice though

no, the numbers usually go across the top of the headstock. there is a video on youtube to help destinguish between a real gibson and a phoney. just click on the long line of iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis

hope this helps.
