Well... I think I don't care. If its a gibson, it's a gibson. If china is making them to gibson standards, it's a gibson, even if it isn't made in their factory. I wouldn't doubt if the 1st shift epiphone workers worked 2nd shift at the "fake" gibson shop.

It's not against the law to own one it's only against the law if you sell a fake as the real thing.

How do you report these. I saw one in a Pawn shop & they're asking $1000 for it. I hate to see someone getting ripped off!

I recently Aquired a "Fake" Les Paul custom. Where ever this was built, the builder must have read these articles on how to spot a fake, because the Logo is perfect, there is only two screws in the bell, it reads LesPaul in cursive, and Custom under lespaul, the binding doesnt go past the nut like a fake, and even more suprizing the back of the pickups says Gibson USA which none of the fakes do. I have a buddy with a real custom, and we laid them side by side, and even he couldnt notice anything except the wiring, and the pickup cavity is unpainted like the real Lp"s. they are exactly the same length, and weigh within grams of eachother. Once the Jap-Chinamen get the right wiring, it will be really hard to tell the diffrence. That is the only diffrence between the two we checked out. I dont know which company in china made this one, but they should close down, and come over here and get a job with gibson.

** I do not condone the sale and resale of FAKE Gibsons, I aquired this cheaply through a trade. I knew what I was getting, and have no intention of re-selling.***

I think I will let my kids beat it all to hell, and then use the gold hardware to put on my REAL 1976 Gibson that I bought when I was 18.
You are aware that they don't use steel they use Chinese pot metal - why would you put Chinese pot metal on a Gibson?
