No idea if it's a fake but this is nice :

"The serial number is G (for genuine Gibson pickups)"

Yes, that "G" for Gibson sure makes life simpler.

My "G" comment concerned the unmitigated gall of some sellers. Their take seems to be, "If I don't know anything, I'll just make something up." It doesn't take two minutes with a search function to find out what the "G" means on an Orville / ObG guitar.

I agree with you - nothing wrong with the guitar. Plenty wrong with the seller and his/her approach to selling.

Gday Mick, my post was aimed at the OP. It pisses me off as well that people have to lie and bullshit to sell something. The bloke has 100% feedback as well.
