Not to knock Studios but I'm not sure why anybody would go to the trouble to fake one. Way more money to be had in faking the more blingy ones with binding and whatnot. I've been into quite a few pawn shops with dumb owner "experts". If you like it, buy it.

Really sweet to see the deal go the other direction for once. I'm sure the Chinese will build you a Studio clone if you want, but no way someone buys a Chibson and then replaces ALL the electronics with the real deal. For that money they could have bought an actual Studio. Congrats!

Congrats Krimson on a nice score.

First Cash Pawn has been a GOLDMINE of mine for 15+ years.

I visit most of the pawnshops in my area religiously every week.

I've found some AMAZING deals on guitars over the years.

The last Gibson I bought from them was at the end of December.

I scored an all original '05 Gibson Black LP Studio w/OHSC for $286.

Great score! Looks legit for sure. I got a NOS 2013 Alpine White Studio for $850 in 2015 at Sam Ash, and I thought I got a good deal... :bow

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but i can't imagine why anyone would want to fake a guitar in that price range. How much profit is there in going to the trouble of producing fakes of lower end guitars. Makes no sense to my way of thinking at least.
