Guitars with fake autographs found in VA airport: officials | Ralei...

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.

The "Stratocaster" headstock shown is the wrong shape and the decals are in the wrong location. Way off. That later model should have the truss rod adjustment at the neck as well.
