When someone posts a pic in a tpkai auction which very conveniently manages not to have the bottom of the truss rod cover in the picture, that rings my warning bells.

It seems that this is a custom where instead of the block fret markers you get trapazoid ones ?? also the 12 fret has letters in the trapazoid marker, also they look to be abalone, or a glammy version of such, i don't read German though so i don't know what the description says ........... a lot of red flags as previous peeps have already said.

I do read German and I think this guy is being straight - at least in the fact he states it is of Chinese origin but 1 of 2 made to order for a German shop with matt black and vintage style adornments...

he's not trying to pass this of as anything other than an MIC guitar...
