    I found this at a store in Japan

    The headstock and decal look wrong

    The backplate has the "A," but no serial number

    The tuners also have the Anderson "A"

    So...opinions?

    It says what it is right in your first picture (don't you wish you read Japanese?). It's Tom Anderson parts assembled by Moon - a Japanese shop that specializes in component guitars.

    The logo is sure fake on the headstock, though. Ugh.
