    how can you tell the difference? I found a used one online that claims to be a USA.
  2. One says Skyline on the headstock, the other doesn't.

    Must be why the headstock is not shown int the ad. Thanks.

    Also, the USA version will have a stacked pot arrangement, while the Skyline has V/V/T. The USA version has standard Hipshot Ultralite tuners while the Skyline has less expensive ones that read "Hipshot Lic." on the back. If it's a color other than natural, sunburst, black, red, or blue, it's most likely a USA.
