Ibanez Universe FAKE?! or real?

Hey, I'm not very good at spotting fakes from real ones,
but this looks pretty dodgy to me, especially that pickguard, and that triangle thing too.

evilbay item number - 290255097547

so is it real or fake?

thanks

looks fake to me, also because of the triangle and the pickguard.
