    right off hand there are two obvious red flags.
    no walnut plug in the truss rod access
    bottom middle screw on the back scratch plate is not offset
    other things im not 100% positive about....
    logo looks like its from the 70's
    12th fret dot markers do not appear to be spaced right but its kinda hard to tell from this pic

    The serial is a decal. The headstock logo is just wrong. The truss rod hole is incorrect. The string trees, tuners are incorrect. Back plate is drilled wrong.

    Everything about the guitar screams fake.

    It’s a horrible fake not even close.

    Font is wrong for the serial number decal, and maybe it's just the angle, but the headstock looks shaped wrong as well

    Funny how the sellers of these fakes never know anything about them.

    (Psssst.......they know EXACTLY what they are selling!)

    That is as fake as it gets.It amazes me how these fake builders don't put more effort into making their guitars look more authentic and how these internet sellers try to pass these off as genuine!!
