A genuine Gibson or a copy #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif

What do you think?

It looks genuine, like the seller stated, probably a conversion. Nothing wrong with it from here.

It appears to be a late teens F4 conversion. #The body shape is right (except where they possibly screwed up the headblock taking the neck out) and the tuners are from the period. #new neck and top. #I have no problems with F4 conversions..I like 'em in fact...but I hate when people do these and dont use the original peghead overlay for authenticity and as a proper pattern for the PH

Thanks for the info D.W. I did not buy this one but it caught my eye last night. Something about it didn't look right.
