    Production Number: 130

    Believe it may be an reissue or a replica ?

    Unless the color is off, that looks like a rosewood board, which makes this almost certainly a counterfeit. Counterfeit experts might be able tp spot more clues

      yep, that's definitely a counterfeit. serial looks wrong, rosewood board, tacky stickers, etc.. not real.

      Good deals: 300+ between HC/TGP... honestly, if you're reading this, I've probably traded with you at one point or another

        Control plate shape is wrong, no fret nibs.

        On tradetang or Aliexpress....that's a $247.95 guitar with free shipping.

        Chinese counterfeit. No doubt.

        It's a fake Gibson Les Paul Custom. The first thing you should always look for on a LPC is the fretboard. They ALWAYS have Ebony. Thats the first thing that counterfiters skimp on because as a whole, Ebony wood is more expensive that generic rosewood.

        Anyways, that guitar is a fake Les Paul Custom. Many many signs. Probably worth a few hundred bucks but many counterfiters will try and pawn it off as a real one. And REAL LPC's go for around 2800$ new.
