What's up with these "Gibson" **** auctions?!

Gibson Les Pauls going for a couple hundred bucks? I emailed one of these Chinese sellers, who had several hundred positive feedback transactions, & he replied that these *were* real Gibson Les Pauls.

There is something wrong with the headstocks, they look weird to me. Also the lower horn looks wrong.

Def. Fakes. Take a look at a couple of them side by side. Headstocks and bodies vary significantly. Check out the Zakk Wylde LP he has for sale. now does that look like a Gibson?

I've seen a few fake Gibsons.

One seller was selling like a hundred of them. I reported him and since he removed them all.
