You could maybe put electrical tape over gibson and list it as a Chinese Les Paul style guitar if you still want to sell it?
Let a buyer play it before they judge it based on where it was made and what it says on the headstock.
EXACTLY. Just list the ad with tape over the headstock and say "This is a Chinese made Les Paul shaped replica that someone has taken the liberty to put the name of a well known manufactuer that starts with a "G" on the headstock..... take the tape off if you like, or leave it on if it bothers you."
Your guitar will sell for what it would anyway..... and lowers the chance of the "proudly made in the U S of A" patriots to contact you with threats of ransackng your trash and raping your cat if you don't cease and desist.
