    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?

    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?

    the weight is right for a LP 32 to 52 lbs...pickups sound muddy so..they are normal..still somethings a bit odd...[​IMG]
