    It's a headstock damaged neck with a bad paint job.

    Seems legit if you bear that in mind.

    i was mainly looking to verify the authenticity of the neck. it seems strange that the headstock was broken off of a bolt on neck guitar, I don't see too many bolt-ons with neck repair, usually set neck. I have owned several classics and seen many more and have never seen any with this neck finish, I just wanted to see if there was anyone out there that had ever seen this finish option, i was pretty sure the answer was no!
