I don’t think it’s fake. I’m just wondering if the headstock has been doctored. No COA, though
I don't think it was doctored. I think it's a QC issue. Looking at the headstocks of the two guitars, it appears as though a grain sealer coat wasn't applied on the first guitar before the black paint was applied, hence the grain pattern shows through very obviously, as opposed to the second guitar, where the paint is much smoother, though you can make out the grain through the paint.
