I am a guitar technician and lately I have had a plethora of cheap eastern guitars faked to look like Gibsons, Fender, Gretsch and other big name guitar companies.
I have been in an unusually luck possition where by I have had the oportunity to deconstruct serveral of these copies.
There is a lot of other advice on how to spot these fakes so I will leave it to the other posters to explain the ins and out of spotting them.
If you are in doubt as to the authenticity of a guitar drop me a message with the url of the guitar and I will take a look and give my opinion.
Having taken appart over 30 of these guitars for research purposes I would say I'm pretty qualified to make judgements based upon good and clear pics.
all the best.
