I played a copy at the recent guitar show here in town. The owner did not know who made it. It looked pretty convincing but as soon as it was played, you knew it couldn't be. The fact that it did not have a disclaimer label makes one wonder if the intent was to decieve. This particular owner was clear about it being a copy but what about the next owner? I once owned a fake made by Chris Warner. An owner of a Gibson (his was a 60's copy) heard mine and said, "now there's a real Gibson". I had to tell if it was not. Chris clearly had the label marked "Gibson copy" with his sig. & date.
