    I dunno, man. The only thing throwing up my red flag on that MD is the inlay on the fretboard.

    My point was more or less if you are going to copy a PRS why not start at a basic model...not something so incredibly detailed.

    Maybe this one is better...or worse...

    I think that's just a sticker on a CU22.

    Yeah it might be after a closer look. I thought the upper horn and inlays looked a bit off but it might be my eyes and the angle...or my brain after seeing that dragon. Apologies if it's legit. I was linked the image some time ago and don't know it's source.

    It was recently for sale on ebay and posted on VR. Like Senior Blanc said, its just a sticker on a CU22.
