    22 fret maple, no skunk stripe. I've not seen this headstock decal before and the placement looks suspect. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    And the spacing of the dots on the 12th fret is too wide, and the truss rod hole has no wood or plastic inner sheath. Can't see the heel, but it's not clear there's even a truss rod in it. ;)

    Thank you guys! I will need some help identifying a Nashville tele I just took in trade as well. It was supposed to have a Warmouth neck on it, but that wasn't right either (and it's a mess), so I was going to get this one to replace it.

    That's one of the worst fakes I think I have ever seen on here.

    No. It's just a logo that was printed onto computer paper, made wet and then slapped in - pretty unprofessionally.

    Shouldn't it have a bullet truss rod adjuster too?
