    the finish and the tuners tell me not genuine, or at least, not stock.

    certainly not "custom shop" per backside logo

    Tuners were installed by a person with vertigo. They're not straight and they are cheap crap. The plug where the truss rod is looks peculiar. The finish looks like someone dipped it in lacquer and let it freeze and then dry. Compare to other custom shop guitars online, you'll see.
    What is the story here? Did you buy it? Would you post more photos? I'd love to see the rest of it.

    The boards a maple cap with truss rod plug custom shop doesn’t do this

    That custom shop logo only comes on USA models and everything about this screams fake and cheaply done

    Not to pile on, but the bad finish is where all of the original decals would have been before they were scraped off

    So fake that fire would avoid burning it out of fear it would taint fires reputation.
