  • Ebay Fake? Gibson Studio

    Take a look at this. The dot on the "I" is touching the "G". And, the serial number is colored in.

    Ok, the very next one had the dot on the i touching the g as well. But, the serial number is not colored in. I don't know.

      It looks real, but I see the "I" thing you're talking about... That's very strange. Other than that it looks good.

          Maybe it was a 90's thing. Those were all from the 90's.

            Not like that on my '90 Standard. But like the others have already said, that's a bit strange but the guitar looks totally legit to me.

              Seen a lot of Gibbys with the dot touching the G. Nothing looks off about that guitar.

                    It's fine.
                    Why would anyone go to the trouble of making a fake $600 Gibson when making a fake $4000 Gibson takes little or no more effort?
