    I got this cheap off ebay so I'd have somewhere to but some extra pickups. It's an Epi with the batwing headstock. It got a bath yesterday. Within a couple of weeks it should have a mint green pickguard and two more pickups (already installed Muy Grand P pickup).

    how is it a fake..

    Its not trying to pass itself off as something else. Its a Pbass "Copy"

    Fake would be someone taking the Epiphone off and putting a fender logo on and trying to pass it off as a Fender when its really a Epiphone.

    Is a Sadowsky a fake Jazz? NO its built upon that style with improvements. see the difference now..

    That body style has been copied by literally 1000s of companys. Its a copy.. Not a fake..
     
  6. If it says EPI on it, then it's the real thing - just not a Fender P-bass.

    I personally prefer the terms "P-bass clone" or "P-bass imitator".
