I found the same rediculous deal for a "real" 1954 les paul, both posted yesterday within an hour of each other. Notice it's the same guitar in two different cities. I know it's not an Alembic, but I still wouldn't someone here think they're getting the deal of the century and lose over $2000. here are the two links that I have found so far.

You see these multiple listings sometimes, but you're right - one says it's in Houston, the other in Minneapolis, so it definitely looks fishy. Here's another similar one for an ARP 2600 synthesizer:

In this case I thought the person was just advertising it in different areas, but if you look carefully, you see that each one is listed as being in a different location.

The ARP 2600 in LA has been "flagged for removal".
