    I THINK the body is a double bound GFS and I THINK the neck is a Fender produced replacement neck. I base this on I have nearly the exact same body (mine is flame) and the exact same neck with that stamp.

    Check the stamp on the heel here (this is American but mine is MIM):

    And here's a pic of my body (the back is solid red/brown, not burst):

    Ah thanks. Yeah, it sure does look like a GFS body. The guy is trying pass it off as a stock fender...
