    Ebay sale at ridiculous price
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/304072372993?hash=item46cc203301:g:eh0AAOSwVBdg2x93&LH_Auction=1
    Any thoughts looks like a Coronado body with a neck added which doesn't look much like a Fender neck to me. When they produced the Hendrix prototype some 10 years later they were clearly stamped "prototype not for resale.
    Maybe I am wrong and it is genuine but I would expect some paperwork or provenance for even 10% of that price.

    It looks kind of questionable. No body binding but bound F holes? Angled headstock?

    It looks a lot like a 70s Matsumoko.
