    Real. I’d stay away because it’s been totally messed with, but it’s real

    Seymore Duncon, my faves. Also, his eye for aesthetics is impressive. Those inlays :crazy

    That thing looks like it’s got some stories to tell.
    But I think it’s genuine.

    If it plays well and you like it $800

    haha
    what a piece of ****. its too bad too, if its legitimately that old of a gibby, that he had to make such amateur “improvements” - completely ruined it. wonder if it was a water damage or what it was to facilitate such mods

    the only “window licker” is the seller

    I like how there's a inlay on the 14th fret. Very avant garde.

    60% Gibson, 40% guitar by-products. What a shame.

    The shape of the cavity control plate looks off.

    For those who say it’s real, how do you know? Is there something about the headstock or?

    I thought the same thing, and maybe the "s" in Gibson looks a bit tired.

    Wow! I wouldn't pay more than $200 for that thing, even if it is real.

    Why is there an inlay at fret 14 instead of 15? Where are the inlays at frets 19 and 21?

    Complete fugazi says your Scary Uncle.
