    This has to be the Dumbest thread I have ever seen based on the studest premise anyone has even made "is this a real Fender (cause the seller said it was).

    "anything obvious that shows it might be a fake?" Duh!

    Yeah, and I'm Richard the Lionheart, King of England.

    You don't "get" humor and jokes.... do you.

    Must be tough to be so literal minded. I feel bad for you.

    I'd like to see the back, I'm guessing it's a bolt-on neck?

    Couldn't go wrong for $4. Strings costs more than that. Heck, couldn't even buy a pack of smoke for that anymore.

    My favorite of theirs is the Flying V/Tele. Makes me smile.

    That's an SG posing as a Tele. But it's still a cool looking guitar. And for $4.00, you could afford to smash it on stage if you like. I did that once with a genuine Sears Silvertone Dan Electro I found at a garage sale for $5.00. It was fun. Too bad it would've been worth something today, but not in 1968.

    "We have a winner!"

    Steve, these guitars are top notch, selling in the two to three thousand dollar range.

    No offense, King Dick, but I liked the thread. Tongue in cheek is always nicer than foot in mouth...

    This was the first guitar to be gene edited in utero in China. That is a fact.

    I'm considering pretending not to have read the thread and writing it's a great score for $4 and it must be worth at least 100, or I could instead tell you it's worth thousands and what an amazing deal you've made. Tough decisions.

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks he was kidding about the $4-talked-down-from-$5 part too.
