    Headstock definitely looks wrong to me, but no expert

    Looks good but the back of the head stock looks fake where the black paint is

    There are few things that scream fake to me about this listing.

    - It claims to be VOS but doesn't look very VOS at all (Still shiny)
    - The toggle switch tip is white. Should be orange
    - Truss rod cover says 'Les Paul Custom'. It shouldn't say anything.
    - Colour is wrong, too light
    - No pointer washers
    - The JP #2 on the back of the headstock is too large, in the wrong font, and should be in black
    - There don't appear to be any under-pickguard switches

    I'm sure there are more signs.

    If not reported yet Check about rockkystar on ebay ( uk lord)
    On Google an you ll get some infos
    Reporting to ebay does nothing...if you are abroad tale care as it is almost impossible to have justice action

    I was fooled by this Guy Who totally refund me before selling again the guitar omitting issues....despite i reported the auction once every two days, nothing was done by ebay...
    So take care , and enjoy vintage gears

    Guess this is the right place for this.
    Recently been looking for some pups for a strat project, & ran across these
    Fender American Stratocaster Standard Pickups USA 717669625573 | eBay

    Since when did fender use ceramic mags on the bottom of their Am std pups?
    I don't know how to report this, any help in case I run across similar bs in the future would be great.

    KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN:wow:

    Here is one were I believe they have doctored the serial with an impressed CS serial in an attempt to defraud some poor sucker. Or it might have been the Chinese who knows. I have seen them still using the eight digit and a nine digit serial and they are even copying Randy Rhodes, Jimmy Page, and Ace Frehley models among others the bastards.
