But of course, it's not a Gibson. It's a Tokai Love Rock, and Tokai of course are known for their high quality replicas of guitar designs by Fender and Gibson. They even made a Telecaster in pink paisley in the early 1980s before Fender themselves decided to re-issue the same model. (The Fender Telecaster in question was a Fender Japan guitar, and very likely came off the same production line as its Tokai "counterpart").
On a related note, the Fender Custom Shop's latest models include Telecasters in a choice of pink, blue and green paisley finishes.
Meanwhile, this Tokai Love Rock in Pink Paisley is currently listed on eBay with a starting bid of $939. Oh, and I've seen a Tokai SG in the same finish too.
