This looks dodgy to me. It as the screw type adjuster's on the bridge,the serial number is nearly the same as my latest 355 chibson. The headstock logo.... The caselooks nice, lol
What do you think???

Inconclusive to me. Looks like an Asian bridge on it, but hard to tell 100% from the photo. Seems like genuine tuners, and not the Asian "Frankenstein" green - but they could have been changed out. Duncan pickups might not be a good sign, but some people did change the pups,and I suppose it might have shipped with DS's.

If it is a fake, it's a nice one though.

It was the bridge and Gibson logo to me that look chibson,but never mind,I'll continue to study,to one day get it right. lol. It seems a coincidence that it was built at a very close date to my Chibson 355 going off serial number's. Whats the chance of that? lol.

Keep in mind that Chibsons will often copy Gibson serial numbers.
