    Looks like it's probably legit from what you say. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

    That thing has mojo. Neck shows it's been played a lot, must be a good one. Check for fret wear in the same area as wear on back of neck.

    These aren't even "good" fakes!

    Seriously, wtf is this?

    Funky serial number, but it looks to me like a nice legit old Korean made G400. A 2001 I'd say.

    Can't say from the photo, so can you tell me if the headstock pineapple and logo are gold or white. Gold would be odd.

    Hi
    Opinions on these two hummingbirds, please? I own both but they're SO different. Different colour shades and dramatically different sizes. I am pretty certain the smaller, the newer one is legit, it is the new Pro version but I am less certain on the other.
    Thanks
    Alex
