    I was looking through craigslist and happened upon this ad

    The title says fender but in the ad he says it's a phony. How can you tell its real or fake !? just curious if this guy knows what hes talkin about or not ! Cuz if he's wrong I think thats a damn good deal !

    The headstock looks similar to a fender, but a little off. Im saying its a fake.
