So to me it looks like a factory aged 2014 R0. Am I on the right track?

Gee, why the see through plastic on the tuner buttons, inlays and Toggle Switch Nut Ring look exactly the same as my 2017 model, what a coincidence

Sure, that wear pattern on the back looks right......looks like a couple of swirls of a small diameter sanding disk. Marked as sold. Hope not.

I'm no vintage expert by any means, and I don't think that looks right.
Aside from the posting calling it a '61...
there's too much shine in the finish to be a 60 year old guitar with that kind of wear.
An aged R0 is what I'm thinking too.

A faka , as in fake and not a vintage burst . I have seen this same instrument making the rounds trying to entice buyers . I love the scummy scam fake descriptions . As always buyer beware !
