Completely fake.

The headstock looks like it was drawn by someone who was blindfolded, with their feet.

I'm far from an expert, but I have to agree with T00DEEPBLUE- that headstock doesn't look right. Most Fender headstocks have a very pronounced bulb at the end, almost like a half-circle. The one pictured above is far too subtle.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

To me, that headstock looks like the one on my Godin Progression Boutique:

You bought a used Chinese guitar that someone added new decals, tuners, and a Fender neck plate to. Contact your local police department so they can bust the seller. Because if he put that much effort into his fakes he’s probably going to sell these to more people than just you.

Well, unless there was some serious drilling & rewiring, it ISNT a Progression Boutique- those don't have a jack on the face, its on the side.

But since it is a bolt-on, it could still be a Godin neck that has been swapped out and re-decaled.


Don't know what it IS, but it doesn't seem to be what it claims to be.

The headstock shape was obvious, the decals are poorly applied, and yeah...But hey. Live and learn. Hopefully you didn't get hosed too much.

All I had to see was the Headstock to know it's fake.....then I saw that crummy plastic "body protector" for the neckplate - No USA guitar uses those....unless they are being deceitful (ie Kramer and their Neptue NJ neckplates on Korean/Japanese import guitars)
