Thats is exactly what it says it is.

Richtone ( see ad at top of page ) is one of the best dealers in the UK.

All 100% true, genuine and real :)

Yours was made in China. The LC85S is made in Japan. The Japanese instruments feature better wood, far better construction, higher spec pickups and hardware, and a much higher attention to detail, hence them costing more. Both your guitar and the one on Rich's auction are modelled on the same style Gibson Les Paul Custom, so from a distance (or from low-resolution pictures) they'll look the same.

Korean Epiphone pu's won't sound as good as the standard MIJ ones. Try Gibson 57 classics or Seymour Duncan PAFs
