Separate names with a comma.
I guess "fake" is a relative term, but there's a difference a partscaster made from genuine parts and one made from non-genuine parts.
I've seen those too. Pretty cool guitars. I think I'm going to keep this one stock at least for now. I might put one of fenders new noiseless...
For those interested here's a link to the old sales page:
Purchased this beauty after returning the other guitar. 2014 American Professional Standard HS.
This is the model predating the current...
I am somewhat near corona but I've already returned the guitar and got my money back. I am also convinced the seller thought he had an American...
It was $500 +shipping.
As for going back on sale. The seller said he was going to swap the neck for a MIM neck he had and repost it as a MIM...
I think it's likely to be a squire neck someone modified. Changing a MIM neck ( which is already a fairly valuable and we'll playing neck ) to...
I have no idea what you're talking about...
It didn't play like American teles I've test played if that's your question.
I think you might be right. Even the tuning machines seem to match.
Interesting, I'd be curious to see what it is before I ship back. Know what the size would be for either one?
Update. The seller is taking the guitar back for a full refund.
I don't think he intended to mislead. I think he actually got scammed himself when he bought the parts.
You just touched on my only complaint about my excelsior. Any chance you have a link to the knob?
Supposedly the moved them from being a triangle to how your describing sometime in the mid 2000s
Ah, yeah that's really close. The body at least has the 3 MIM drill marks.
Here is the body. It matches a bunch of MIM tele bodies I've seen.
Yeah, I always knew that, but as long as it was genuine MIA parts it worked for me. Unfortunately it appears that was also not the case.
Any idea if the serials were on the back?
The pictures were taken by the original seller. I received it as the completed guitar. I haven't taken it apart to check but it doesn't appear so...
The seller seems very receptive to everything, so should be resolvable. Feel bad for him too though. He bought the parts off eBay as American parts.
Interesting, so the made in Japan theory might be correct?
Any idea if those existed in '93?
Any idea of the serial was on the back of any of these?
I noticed this as well. Any idea if any of the special runs put it on the back? Like a 50s reissue or something?
