    Exclamation These look suspicious

    This one looks like a Sterling body, repainted, they have the Sterling trem listed, that's what makes me think it's a Sterling.

    This one looks like a copy since there are no mounting holes for anything.

    What do you think?

    Yes, they are obviously fakes. Anybody know how to report them on reverb?

    One thing that stood out to me was the slight flat edge where the input jack would go... my AL has a continued curve/rounded edge there, no flatness. Though I can't speak for Sterling versions, pretty sure they're the same.

    It says : " Albert Lee Style guitar body" so, at least, it doesn't prented to be a real MM. Sold as a "project" thing.

    It didn't initially, the green one was taken off for a bit after being reported and replaced with the new name... the pink one still claims to be an ALHH body. Also that hoodooguitarparts.com link goes nowhere, I can't get it to resolve.
