    Looks pretty fake to me. Something about the headstock seems really wrong.

    Headstock crown appears to be too shallow. Also the knobs and pickup selector seem to be improperly positioned.

    Also looks like a 3 screw truss rod cover.

    It's a fake, but in fairness, he never calls it a Gibson, just an 'SG guitar'.

    It does appear to say Gibson on the oddly shaped headstock, but the asking price reflects that of a Chinese knockoff.

    it's $230 for a SG custom. Even if it is a fake it's priced accordingly. He hasn't said it's a 'Gibson' anywhere on the ad - I bet if you ask him (if it's a fake + its history) he'll tell you

    btw - I do think this is a fake, that upper 'horn' is too long/shaped oddly
