Fake or counterfeit J-45?


Recommended Posts

I am looking at a 2019 Custom Shop Cedar/Mahogany J-45 to buy, slightly used. I have not seen it in person yet but have seen fotos... the back of the headstock has no visible stampings and the tuners look suspicious. The Sunburst on the front seems not symetrical, not what I would expect from a high quality instrument. Should I be concerned with these issues as a counterfeit? Anything else to look for?

Thank you for any input and advice.
