Don't look good to me.

What is that tailpiece about ?
Body shape is wrong especially the horn
Seem that binding on side of the headstock is pretty wide, another clue
Wrong font for serial
Grovers look fake
Everything is wrong on the headstock. Here's a real one.

What I see that concerns me is the "V" shape of the tail piece. I've never seen an Epi that didn't have a straight tail piece. But then, I'm not an expert at this.

Since the pickups were swapped, I'm gonna guess that the bridge/tailpeice was as well. I just recently learned that you can do that. The font on the headstock is different than mine and DrBGood's, but I am not sure that that is definitive of real or fake. I can not spot the difference in the tuners. Can DrBGood point it out for us please? Here is mine.

if it were a real Unsung made Epi from 2014 the serial# would be 1405213579

the serial# format changed in 2008
