Anyone here know of the relationship (if any) between Magic Fluke and this outfit?
I see from the Magic Fluke site that they aren't listed as an authorized dealer but the ads from True Joy indicate they are selling Fleas made in Hartford Conn. They have their own label pasted over(?) the Flea label in the sound hole.
Just seemed odd to me.

Here is their Amazon listing. They provide a fair amount of detail about the Flea that they say they source from Fluke.

Looks to me like they are not listed as dealers for Fluke because they market then on their own.

Yep,
Saw the Amazon ad. Just thought it was weird that they would cover up the Mfg's label and then brag about the manufacturer. Is this normal? I wondered if it was a Schoenhut clone or what.
There is a Craigslist sale here that might tempt me if I could see the real Fluke connection.

I have one of these concert fleas with fleabag and they are absolutely genuine.

Same here. It's the real deal and a great deal with a free gig bag.
