Despite probably appearing so, Im not being aloof to be rude. Im quite unsure what is "common knowledge" or not, and Rich is the best person to decide what gets shared and why.

Re: Does this neck cavity look correct??

Bob has some valid points but I don't see them as clear cut evidence. Honestly, we're looking at pictures in different lighting where angles also make a difference. Without personally inspecting that guitar I couldn't give you any definitive answer. What I wanted was a link to another from a verified Chinese seller that we could all look at and [except for the hardware which they'll never pay enough to get perfect], say oh ****, change the hardware and that would fool anybody. Until I see that, I'm not convinced either way. All the example pictures he sent would be easy to spot a mile away, or at the least on a second glance.

I've been unable to get back to this today, but let me see if I can get your drink here.

1. Your picture of the "differences" in the pickguard contained no explanation. I've gathered from other posts that you're saying the bevel is wrong? And the corner isn't pointy enough? See attached from my 2000 body. Looks just like the yellow guitar. These parts come from a supplier and there are variances over the years, perhaps due to a supplier change. This is most notable in the screw locations typically.

2. You're pointing out that you think the color is wrong and raised grain in the cavity, but neglecting to point out that this is a refinished guitar. Look at the more zoomed out of the attached images. On a factory guitar the inside of the neck pocket is completely raw wood. If you were to refinish the guitar and start out by spraying sanding sealer, you would 1) make everything look yellow and 2) raise a bunch of grain on unfinished wood. Even if it isn't sanding sealer (could just be the poor lighting), they've definitely sprayed the yellow over bare wood, which would have the same effect of raising grain.

Cool. Thanks for the input.
