If its genuine its one of the new models there will be someone on here who has the new ones and they maybe able to advise if the style of handle and shoulders is the same.

There are some tell tale signs in some of the older bats which you can spot. The binding and the slight dip on each side of the shoulders.

If someone offered me this as genuine Keeley I wouldnt buy it, the shoulders and binding dont look right.

But I could be wrong, Im sure some of the forum have these new style bats from the Keeley own range.

Sit tight someone will be able to advise.

Shoulders, binding, twine, handle knob and handle inserts all look wrong. I'd put this in the "I'd be very, very surprised if it were genuine" category but a better Keeley geek may have a different opinion :D

The stickers are not impossible to get hold

+1 on if you like a bat and you feel the price is fair go for it. Judge it on the wood it is not the mystique and BS of stickers/ stories

Definitely not a Keeley in my opinion

I wanted to say the same @KettonJake based on the knob shape and inserts. The finishing on the top of the knob looks a bit rough though and the twine maybe a bit too thin but it's hard to say in those pics. The shoulders also tend to be more squared off so don't look GM. I'm sure I've seen that kind of stamping on the top of the handle too but my GM's are too covered in tape to check quickly and I've had too many bats to remember where I've seen the stamp :D

@Ronnie what is the side profile of the bat?

I have about 9-10 TK bats and I agree with Dan! It doesnt look TK to me either.

really appreciate all the help guys, although the bat seems nice and rebound seems very good, i dont think i will be buying this as i had my heart set on a keeley and from the response this clearly isnt an original
