    No, they're not Custom Shop. It looks like someone just put the stickers on ceramic pickups, like you'd find in Squiers or similar budget guitars.

    What sort of guitar is it?

    It's not even the correct CS stickers, looks like someone just printed the logo on pice of paper och glued it on.

    I hope “at a good price” means “at a good price for a partscaster”.

    Faking the Custom Shop labels on cheap electronics would make me distrust every detail.

    That looks to me like normal import cheap stuff, the switch, pots everything.

    Those are probably the funniest pictures that will be posted today, unless you had actually bought it, then they would be the saddest.
