If anyone is thinking about bidding on the Gibson Rossington Les Paul currently on eBay, I would suggest you look closely. It appears to me to be a forgery, the first I've seen. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120241242104&fromMakeTrack=true * The beauty marks on the top are in the wrong place. * The belt buckle wear mark on the back is way too small, this is what first caught my attention - it's just way off. * The PUs appear to be relic'd chrome or nickel and not gold. I've asked the seller (who has a perfect feedback record BTW) for images of the front and back of the headstock, but have never received a reply (I've asked twice). He claims it was a Rossington that was sold in Japan and has a black (not brown) case and Japanese hang tags. I wonder if it was forged in Japan and resold here as a real Rossington? Nevertheless, caveat emptor!!
