Hello, I am looking into purchasing this model (2nd hand, USA MADE), previously I had a chance to play (not buy) his 2014 model, what are the differences and which is generally considered better, what so you think about this guitar generally, the sller asks for 1700$, is the price any good? I have attached photos of the specific guitar, also, do you think the guitar is authentic or a fake, as Ive seen fakes around, thank you!

Do you mean between the 2005 and 2014 models, or on this specific piece, and also what do you think about the price?

(the seller sent me 2 new photos including serial, attaching them)

Every one I see has the bullet truss rod adjuster.

Edit: I see Fender introduced the bullet truss rod on this model in 2007.

I live outside of the US, there is no shipping specified however I'll try and contact him, looks amazing and even with customs I think It'll be around the same price tag

Send him a message through Reverb let him know you are a MLP member and ask him if he would consider shipping it to you.

So I talked to him and it is possible to ship it to me, I did some calculation and including taxes everything should be 1750-1800 usd, however the 2005 Ynwgie's offered to let it go for 1400 usd, I am just wondering about authenticity and year diffrences (2005 or 2016 at Reverb), what do you think? his guitar serial is SZ5053798, anyway to tell if it's legit and really USA made?

Hey nandakorewa, you're welcome and I'm glad it worked out for you with Greg. He is a good standup guy. He owns a guitar and amp store here in the US and is a hell of a player himself. Lets see pics of it when it arrives.
