I wouldn't be surprised if that's a replica. I know the "Number One" Les Paul they had on display was a fake, or at least not the real Number One.

Why do you think that? He gave them all those amps and guitars, and they all look legit.  The #1 Looks like the real thing, right down to the inlays.

The pic I saw was this one

Which I thought looked nothing like this, especially the flame on the top half

But then I looked up another angle of the museum guitar where the light displayed the flame better

And the dots/blemishes here match the top pic

So yeah, it's legit. Apologies.

Everything Jimmy donated, and everything in that exhibit, is legit. Including the Gibson Les Paul 1960 Custom stolen from him in 1970 and returned in 2015.

I was just about to rebut this when I saw you came to your senses in your next post. I know two guitar geeks who have visited the exhibit (one brought me back some goodies) and it's legit.
