the neck is authentic, however the body is doubtful.
it's obviously being refinished, you can tell from the spring cavity.

Thanks.

The seller said that the guitar in 1996 , so a lot of scratches and dents .

The certificate of authenticity has been lost(before him).

Who else would like to say that ?
Interestingly, real or fake . And what model =)
I can check it out by serial number ?

Re: Please help determine the authenticity of the j. custom

1. you will not find it on the official catalog. because it's an exclusive store model, I forgot the store's name.
2. I've seen this one before, I'm very sure the body was refinished.
3. the original body for it was an ash. the finish is transparent.
4. lastly, It's not a fake, but definitely not in original spec as well.

Got it, thanks a lot!
The seller wants $ 700 for it, it is the normal price ?

honestly, the neck seems to be in pristine condition.
the down side is only the body.
If you can remove the paint and make it back to original finish, it's gonna be wonderful.
if you like it, go for it.

I think yes.
These guitars are bought for a lifetime ...
And the dream of having a custom guitar with reverse headstock and maple neck .... then buy .

When bring it home , I will write about their experiences .

And once again , thank you for your help!
