  • What say you? Real or Fake?

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-Gibson...gAAOSwBWZgL23O

    I'm thinking no way. Has to be Custom as &^%%#. Were there even custom shop stamps back then? And the big stuck on logo? NEVER seen that on an Aldo Nova model.

    I would agree it is extremely rare to have a Gibson amp logo on a guitar headstock

      I dunno. Gibson has done some oddballs in the past. Looks a lot like this one:

        I don't know really.
        I look at the existing meta-data surrounding it.
        The guy has a solid history, excellent feedback, deals with guitar sales on a regular basis, etc.
        But his biggest sale (that I saw) was about 6k, a pretty far off distance from 25k.
        He normally clocks in sales around 2k.
        I'm sure anyone with a real interest would be able to call the guy directly and ask for proof of past ownership history and provable pedigree.

            I believe it is real. I'm reading there was a run of 10. That one is in really bad condition, however.

                  I have always seen the Gibson as inlay at the tip of the headstock.

                      Well, here's another for $65,000 on Ebay.

                      Lots of detail from the seller.

                        I say real, but I'd really like to eyeball it about 10 minutes to be sure.

                          In 1986.....if that had Block inlays (Why TF not?!?!?!?) and a Khaler - they would have been able to sell thousands of those.

                          And I'd have toned down that logo...

                            Sent the pix to 2 pals of mine with excellent vintage credentials. They say real.

                              Wow, that is a real 'dartboard design' isn't it?
