    Photo isn’t particularly clear. Sketchy background story. Stay away, man.

    I'm no expert, but I can spot deceptive language, for sure -- "It is stamped as Made in USA, but I recently found out when I was taking it in for a setup that it may be a "partscaster"" ... "and he told me how his cousin worked for Fender in Corona CA and that this guitar was pulled for minor defects" ... "There's a gray area about this guitar's origins," ... yeah, well there's a "grey area" in the TWO different stories this dude is trying to sell - they can't both be true

    Even the color in the pic looks suspect -- run away, @Eddie !!

    My brother in law's girlfriend's sister's boyfriend's other girlfriend used to work at the Gibson custom shop and she told me that my LP Special I is really a Gibson, but they put on an Epiphone decals as a joke. I'm selling it for $699.

    In other words, don't buy.

    Crappie fishing.
    First thing that jumped out at me is the position of the ashtray next to the PG. Way off...

    The position of the headstock label looks off. Yet another reason to stay away.
