I'm just going to add that, based on how the photo of the headstock was angled, not only is it a fake, but the seller KNOWS it's a fake. That's why he obscured the truss rod cover via the weird angle of the photo; there's no other reason to take a photo like that, but it's exactly what you would do if you don't want the TRC to show it's sitting directly on the nut.

Yes! Exactly, thats why I posted clearer pictures should be requested. And the response and sale itself should be reported.

given its a clear fake, I would request posting the link to the sale here on MLP to prevent someone from getting ripped off.

Te overall look is clumsy, ugly, and "off," and every individual feature is visibly both wrong and poorly executed. Super-obvious fake, and a cruddy guitar.

Fakes never seem to get the knob spacing correct. There is a certain symmetry to an authentic Lester we are all used to as owners and fans. Throw that off just a bit, and it sticks right out.
