I purchased a PRS used from guitar Center last month. Everything seems ok with it. My drummer picked it up and pointed out the black paint on the headstock. It's uneven in some placed. Granted, this guitar is from 1994, so it's old, but could i get your guys expertise on this one? It's a PRS CE22. There SN on the back matches up to an orange CE22 per the folks at PRS, but my recent reserach into the chinese PRS market has yielded that they also fake the SN for these knock offs, also.
notice the edges of the headstock. They almsot looks as if they've been touched up or something. could this be a sign of a fake, or are these commonly chipped/worn with age?
