Re: real?

Looks more like a con. Only the in case pics match each other. My guess it's a compliation of pics "borrowed". The body shot upper left looks like it has alot more cosmo wear on the trem than the cased shots. And of course the price is too good.

Re: real?

Before I saw Rich's response, I thought exactly what he said. That top left corner pic does not look like the same guitar. The inlays look fake, the color looks off, the pickups look more faded, I also thought the in case pics looked good. I smell a rat.

Re: real?

The headstock pic is real, I just doubt it's the guitar he's trying to sell, if he has one.

The upper left is just a bad pic I think, it looks like an Edge to me. Board does look too fresh though.

Re: real?

The colors just look very wrong to me. The headstock pic, yeah, the logo goes out to the end, it's just a stretched picture, probably just a crappy camera. I suppose it could just be the camera in the upper left pic also, but those inlays don't look the right color, nor does the body. The body looks just like that crappy candy-corn yellow the fakes were using on DYs.

Dude, check out the multieffects unit at the back of guitar. X-07 something. WTF?? Looks like a Boss GT-8 rip-off! Damn! These counterfeiters even copy multieffects unit nowadays?

p/s..I know..old thread..but I needed to point out the fake mfx box.
