Gibson Les Paul

I'm new to guitars, and i was wondering what the differance is between a USA made Gibson Les Paul, and a Chinese made Gibson Les Paul? Also, why are the Chinese versions so much cheaper? Is the sound for the Chinese made worse in some way?

Yep, fvjbngugn99 never complains, never posts a -ve or NPB notice to Fleeb, they just disappear and become rtunvrlgv99.

The great thing about "buying" something from these scamming gits is that Fleeb sends the seller a bill for the % of the $500 they owe. Of course, they can't say I was an NPB (because I can show they don't own the guitar) so they do a runner, rather than end up coughing $25 to Fleeb in seller's fees.

And when the 'Sellers' e-mail you, they do so directly and bypass ebay cos they have already been unregistered.
And then the resulting e-mails are very funny, the empty threats of neg feedback, but then you start talking about sending them extra cash if they can throw in a Vintage chinese vase with it, and when you get bored with them just filter out and block their e-mails.

They are as good as a very good epiphone but obviously look better as they carry the gibson name on head stock.
the main differences visually are the binding, where head stock meets the neck binding which is not the same as a gibson and the wiring when you open the cover plates at the back is inferior to gibson wiring, also you may find the the side of the routed hole are painted as opposed to a gibson which is mahogany finished wood. sometimes the truss rod cover has three screws instead of two.
