Done - filed a report with Ebay. It's definitely an Asian bridge on the guitar - you can clearly see the screw slots in the photos. To the credit of the seller, he may think it's genuine if someone ripped him off, but he says he bought it at Sam Ash which is suspicious. Those guys are some of the best at spotting fakes.

Thanks!

I couldn't remember my eBay password!

The bridge is Asian, body shape is wrong, he has put those stupid pickup stickers on the back, and the infamous serial number! It is definitely a fake.
Gibsons have more grain on the back too....

I did see one instance where someone had upgraded a real Gibson with an Asian bridge, but some other things just didn't look right. The script on the truss cover looked a bit too large and not delicate enough - which is typical of Asian fakes.
