    It seems to be a Les Paul Custom, but I've never seen one with only 2 knobs instead of 4.

    Well, if those are G-Force tuners working on both ends of the string, that's about right for Gibson's engineering. Is the fretboard genuine Richlite -- you know, the "innovation" you use when you can't source wood?

    2 headstocks to break? Oh my.
    She seems like high maintenance, I’d avoid.

    Did you test the ohm or resistance of the buckers. Good test.

    The block inlays don't seem proportional. Think it's a Chibson. What's the return policy?
