Modern Gretsch Guitars

Fake?

1

I came across this online auction post and the guitar looks questionable to me - serial number doesn't seem to make sense. Would appreciate any comments as to possible authenticity. Hope the link work. Lot 343 on page 4.

Blatant Chinese copy that's wrong in any regard. Stay away!

Just look at that horribly bad done trussrod cover. Someone should report this as it already has several bids from 5 people. I'm sure the auctioneers are interested in getting this straight as they corrected other items too. See 340a.

Thanks Sasha. I added a comment to this effect on the auction company's FB post.

You can get these for $150 in kit form, $300 finished new. They're ripoff POS guitars. They've been around for quite awhile. Avoid at all costs. Caveat Emptor.

Can you still call it a copy when nothing about it closely resembles ANY aspect of ANY actual Gretsch model?
