    The lack of walnut truss rod plug, cheap tuners and no microtilt hole are a giveaway. lol

    Reported to eBay and sent the seller a message telling them why it is an obvious fake.

    The bad "Noiseless" stamping of the pickups gives it away as well the dual string tees. The rubber gasket under the neck plate is something I've never seen on any contemporary USA models.

    I suggest if y'all have nothing better to do just pretend you think it's real and ask for more pics just to waste his time and get his hopes up. I've reported it to eBay, but I doubt they'll pull the auction as they failed to pull several chinese fakes I've reported.

    I asked for a pic and he replied: "Oh wow I dont how to send it to you then th3 number is z9028678

    - wahb4l"


    That makes it 4 years old, er. . . "New"

    Very cool, great work guys! Maybe harassment is the only way to get these scumbags off eBay.
