    Is this a fake GX-56 or a new non-US version of the King?

    Just saw this ad on the 'bay. A silver-faced GX56 with yellow accents listed very cheap in comparison to other GX's. Also the day display is only 2 letters and the back metal case doesn't match up to my black/positive display GX I got last week. Take a look and tell me what you think/know about the GX listed:

    That's what I was suspecting. I wouldn't mind seeing a silver-faced GX in the future though. Are you listening Casio? There are still people out here who like the positive displays!

    No alpha-gel, wrong model number on the back, 1/1000 brand instead of Casio and the cheap screws are a giveaway this is a cheap fake. I would not be surprised if the buttons are not part of the bezel.

    Cheers,

    I like how it's battery reserve indicator is at low, medium AND high.

    Those "cool party people" are silly.

    In addition to Sjors' findings, the module's day letters are not at all Casio-like and an immediate hint, too. This particular model has three-letter day names and the "U" would not look that box-like as in the item's picture, but rather rounded at the bottom corners.
