    Headstock shape is weird, but real BB's come with 2 or 3 pickups.

    The giveaway is the price, I think.

    There are 2 pup versions of the Black LP Customs, but that one looks kind of fishy especially for the price. Hard to see much with those pics though.

    Yeah, I've yet to see a rosewood fretboard on a 'real' one.

    But it's not listed as being authentic either.

    I love faraway guitar pics on sale listings. Were those taken using Google Earth? Lord.

    First thing I saw too ....

    Too inexpensive for a real one ... and my thoughts say too expensive for a replica ...

    Yeah, he does say replica, so maybe he is kinda being a little bit on the up, but I don't think he would turn ya away if you thought it was a real gibby....

    Why did you even have to go farther than the title of the ad itself?
