    they said it was a real fender but i'm not so sure. I paid $4 for it. (talked them down from $5). is there anything obvious that shows it might be a fake?

    Looks legit to me...of course, I just had my eyes dilated and I’m standing in direct sunlight, looking on a cell phone with a cracked display, so I may be missing a detail or two.

    PS—cool guitar, though.

    It's fake. The saddle screws are a dead giveaway.

    knocked them down 20% on their asking price, my kind of guy. Great score. You get a case?

    Not a fender. RS is good, if it's real you got a very good find. It may be just an RS neck on a whatever body. But the neck alone is worth 20 times what you paid.

    All kidding aside, that's a cool looking guitar. Have you checked scale length? is it Gibson or Fender... or something else entirely?

    At first I thought it was hideous. Now I can’t look away. I’m curious about the scale too.

    Well, it's not like somebody's gonna get confused and take it home by mistake, after the jam-party...

    370,000 Yen are little more than 3000 Euros... Nice shot!!!
