    I saw this PRS for sale on Facebook marketplace for 400 dollars and I was just wondering if it was real or fake. I was wondering this because of the way the Signature on the headstock is. I’ve never seen one like that

    You have to host them from a third party site, like Imgur, and then link them into your post.

    You need three (?) posts to link an image, I believe. But you should be able to include the direct FB link in a post.

    Without seeing the headstock I can't say - the signature has changed in size and presentation a fair bit over the years.

    Sounds like OP is the seller trying to flog a fake and see if he can get it past the people who know.

    Why do we always point fingers and assume? Why not wait until the image is posted?

    I agree. Assuming the OP is being real, then if it's a core or S2 model for $400 then it's likely fake maybe or stolen. If it's an SE it's likely real. No guarantees, just probabilities...
