IS MY NECK A FAKE??

Hi Guys,

I need your help, i bought a neck off of **** for my ibanez rg 370. The guys at the shop thought it was a fake but suggested that i ask here. THe seller said he was from australia but it shipped from Indonesia. Shame on me for not doing my research.. Anyways the model number is RG350SP3. Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks all!

Dave.

It looks legit to me. No offense, but there really isn't a market for counterfeit low end guitars.

Re: IS MY NECK A FAKE??

Thanks for the help guys! No offence taken, it was my first guitar and iv spent way too much money trying to make it sound good lol. Sentimental value really. THe guys at the shop didn't recognize the model number, and I couldn't find it online.
THanks again.

Dave

Re: IS MY NECK A FAKE??

The neck was originally on a white RG body with a pickguard. The same guitar without pickguard would have been an RG370
