    Does the headstock say Gibson?

    Hope it arrives safe and sound :)

    Hard to tell but the back looks to certainly say made in U.S.A.

    I thought he said in another thread that the headstock just says "custom". I might have misread that though.

    I don't care what it says...only interested in how it plays. Followup please.

    The only reason I care is so I know the odds when I place my confiscation bet.

    You are correct...a major mistake on sellers/builders part. Should read Custom..not Gibby.....unbelievable really...also should have tummy/belly cut....did not happen...already sour........she looks good.....cheapo trem......she better play good......and not get seized.....story continues when she arrives gentlemen....good night

    That's a picture of the actual guitar? Looks real nice. Hope it arrives safely. I had a customer's Chibson in my shop some time ago. I think I posted a thread about it... It needed a fret leveling/recrown and some other TLC, but the owner was quite happy with it when I was done with it.

    I was looking at a hard drive last night & came across 2 pics that I took at a local pawn shop that had a great Chibby LP copy with a top I loved. I almost made a play for it, but someone bought it, thank god.
