Dozens of “counterfeit guitars” — some with fake autographs — were seized at a Virginia airport, officials say.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers found the 85 guitars at Washington Dulles International Airport on March 31, according to a June 21 news release from the agency. Officials confirmed on May 28 that the guitars “violated guitar manufacturers’ trademark protections” and “completed the seizure” on June 9.
The guitars would have been worth roughly $259,000 if authentic, CBP estimates.
