    Looks legit to me too... case is correct for 2013 as well. It would have a COA booklet...no mention of it but that would prove it legit...

    - is that a legit custom shop logo like the stamp on the back of the headstock

    - toggle switch control plate looks really funky

    - inlay split diamond is very odd looking

    - tuning machines? We’re those ever right on a custom?

    I’m asking...because i dont know.

    Eww, chrome hardware. It just looks wrong on a Custom. And those pickups are ugly too.
    Other than that, I don't see anything obvious. The tuners are the normal grovers that come on a Custom. They just look weird in chrome o_O

    That’s exactly what it is!

    I’ll chalk it up to bad/blurry pics.
