    You're right - truss rod cover is a giveaway, as is the headstock shape. The left side between the E tuner and the nut doesn't look like any fender I've seen. Too phony. Phake Phender!

    Words to look out for in auction descriptions:

    "I don't know much about guitars" and variants.
  4. It's definitely a fake. Check out the cheesy homemade, ink jet printer decal.

    I hate fake eBay auctions. It's such a giveaway, no high bids will be placed. I reported the auction.

    It's sad to see 9 bids from unsuspecting victims!

    Something about the way they word the description reminds me of that Chinese lady from MAD TV.
