Or you can bring it to his attention and hash it out. There's always the chance though that he is unaware that it's a fake.

Re: Help getting information about my new ES100

You also don't show the full front headstock of yours. If it's a three screw trussrod cover (like the Korean one you put up in your other post), then it's definitely not MIJ Your 08 serial number indicates 2008 - but as far as I know, there were no Japanese ES100's in 08. Your made in Japan print on...

Myself, I prefer the standard humbuckers in that video comparison.

Re: I have been sitting on an ES100

For what it's worth, the 1981 first issue ES100's came with two pickup choices. The ES100J(azz) had lower output p'ups and the ES100R(ock) had hotter, higher output.
