Yes,I thought the neck pickup is an Air Classic but when I went the store today my friend said it is a DiMarzio PAF.

Well,after further communication Gibson they have convinced me that the guitar is not real.The told me that they cannot go into details of why the guitar appears to be fake because they don't not want the fraudulent sellers to use that information to improve their fake copies. Anyway you can see some of the (now)obvious"tells" below in comparision to a real Epiphone

There may be more but I can't see them



Anyway,I took the guitar back to my friends store and explained the problem.They gave me a refund.
