    Does this king look wierd?

    Saw this king for sale on craigslist. The ad says it was a display model. It looks off to me....

    Looks like a fake.

    It's missing the "Shock Absorber" bar in the middle.

    Good call.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    probably a fake.
    aside from the shock absorber bar being missing (as previously mentioned), the 'mud resist' writing on the strap should be red.

    I'm looking at pics on my phone but it looks real...but modded. Can't tell if the "Shock Resist" bar has been taken out or just stealthed black. The lettering looks right, but it looks like it's been painted white(er). Everything else looks right, but I'd steer clear just knowing it's obviously been opened up.

    I agree with everything that's been said, but agree with Tsip the most. Looks like it has been modded at least slightly, but is probably real. I have never seen a fake that includes a battery level indicator, and it looks right on this one.

    I think the letters on the bezel (PROTECTION and G-SHOCK) are recessed on the real King. The one in the craigslist looks like a paint on the bezel. Very suspicious. you should ask the seller for more details.

    Looks real to me for sure but it does appear to have been fiddled about with and the pictures arent the best.
    It happens sometimes. People just explode. Natural causes.
