Hey guys,
help me solve this puzzle here

This ad shows a bit of a sketchy listing... and I wrong to assume it is a fake?

  • Serial number font looks funny
  • Typically lefty reissues have an upside down decal

Here is one that appears to be a real reissue (with the stuff I talked about... notice the upside down decal)

Post a link to the ad. That's not a historic based on the (crappy) serial number. Maybe a Classic.

Uh, No. That font is huge, and that isn't a Historic (since 2003 the Historics also have the fret markers on both sides of the neck)

Hey, what’s wrong with lefties?

Well for a start, it’s a constant struggle for right-handers to find guitars when there are just so many left-handed examples cluttering up the market!

Furthermore, left-handed models are an abomination - all back-to-front and topsy-turvy. Just take a look at this thing, which I doubt even calieng could put round the right way:
