Re: Help ID - is this really a Prestige?
Exactly as Fire said, my prestiges all have the logo that looks like this on the back of the headstock:
Made By Japan
TEAM J. Craft
Made in Japan
There are no boxes on the rear of the headstock apart from the compliance logo to the left of the above. On the front of the headstock Prestige have a "Prestige" above the Ibanez logo also.
So whether it was sold to him as a prestige unknowingly or he's trying to pull a fast one avoid it. In such cases on local ads I give the seller the benifit of the doubt and a heads up that all is not well, if they ignore it I presume they're a scam artist and contact the company hosting the ads.
