I am the 3rd owner of this guitar. Got it in a trade for an old Stagg Fretless Bass. This has never been passed of as a real Gibson and I will never sell this on. As far as I can tell from the previous owner it was made in 2018. The first owner had replaced the tuners with Hipshot Locking Tuners. I have replaced the pickups with a Seymour Duncan SH-6B Distortion in the bridge position, and a Dimarzio DP227BK LiquiFire in the neck position. It is intonated and has low action. It now plays fine with no fret buzz or sharp fret ends.
