Looking for a Epiphone Les Paul Standard..how NOT to get ripped off?

I am looking for a good new/used Gibson Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Electric Guitar much like this one in Evilbay: http://cgi.****.com/ws/****ISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

What should I pay attention to, so I don't get ripped off, like so many Jems on there.

Thanks for any help.

You shouldn't have to worry about Korean knock offs of a korean knock off.

Re: Looking for a Epiphone Les Paul Standard..how NOT to get ripped off?

the major diff is that Jems are Highly sought guitars, thus creating the knock-ff market. Epiphones are generally frowned upon, by the guitarist community (although mine played better than both actuals Gibson LPs in my band), thus no reason to "copy" it.
Personally, I don't pay attention to guitar snobbery, and am not a blind brand-name loyalist. I believe in actually trying out, and evaluating, the individual guitar. If you don't, you are going to miss alot of hidden jewels. I once went to check out acoustic guitars. After about an hour of dissapointments, it turned out that the $150 Epiphone acoustic, in the corner , was the one that blew them ALL away.
