    Saw this for sale. Thought it was a Tremonti Trem (because of inlay on 12th fret), but noticed the bird inlay on the first fret. Haven't seen this before. Is it bunk? Any thoughts before I drive out to see it?

    I'm no expert, and that isn't the best picture... but that certainly looks fake to me.

    It's fake. That F hole looks like a decal (applique for those who remember that fiasco), but it has a paint job that calls up real PRS hisotry, so somebody did some homework before they painted it.

    Interesting. Can you point me to a link about this "applique fiasco?" And what's with the history of the paint job?

    I also think it is likely a fake, but I would definitely approve of a "metal" Tremonti.

    The fiasco was a run in with a troll about decal birds on his CE. Here's the real PRS "Metal" guitar and paint job. If I was going to make a PS guitar it would have this paint job.

    Go try it out, remember the serial number and ask the company if it's real. You still might like what you hear even if it's fake.
