    PRS ce24 fake or real?

    Hi I'm about to buy my first prs which I'm very excited about, its a ce24 1998 but id like some help please.
    The guitar I'm looking at seems to have different machine heads than what i see on most prs guitars,
    which got me thinking is it a fake.
    not sure how to put up photos so gonna leave a link a to the advert.

    maybe I'm just being too safe but taught id check.
    any help would be great.
    thanks.

    It's real. The tuners have been replaced and the set up is all jacked up, but the guitar is a genuine PRS.

    He got back to me saying the tuners were replaced by original owner to grover.
    Clears that up.

    Absolutely immaculate? It could be blessed by the pope or played by Jesus himself, but "immaculate" and this bridge setup are mutually exclusive. If that's not a sin cast from the pits of hell direct from Satan himself, I don't know what is.
