    Good morning all, I'm new here. I need help in determining if this john mayer strat is a fake or real. I have a feeling it's been modified to some degree but none the less this guy wants to trade me a for a gibson SG SPECIAL for this.
    I have one guitar fender starts have always been my favorite guitars but I don't want to lose my money I've spent.
    Please any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

    If it's real i want to trade the guys in about 4 hours. If not, that's it.

    Welcome to the forum!!

    It's 100% fake - the John Mayer was a USA model, so it would never have had wide 12th fret non-Fender dot spacing like that or a black plastic truss rod hole sleeve.....don't dare trade! The logo placement is also so wrong it's obvious....

    The guy wants to rip you off with a counterfeit guitar

    The guitar is actually a modified small headstock Squier Affinity Strat from Indonesia that was less than $200 when new...late 1990s....can also tell because of the narrow width of the neck at the nut

    The guy who is trying to rip you off should be shot. Of course he will claim he didn’t know or argue that you are wrong.

    By the time I had seen the two string trees & the black plastic truss rod sleeve I knew it was a very poor fake. If people are going to fake guitars, I wish they would try a little harder to give us a bit of a challenge - if it can be spotted as a fake in less than 5 seconds, it's all rather pathetic.

    John Mayer is a divisive figure and I for one am a huge fan....so to see this dingus trying to pass this turd off as a JM stratocaster (one I would love to have) is horrifying. Don't just tell him you won't accept the trade, tell him to stick that where the sun don't shine.
