Randy Gray, 27, was part of the Josh Davis Band and was one of four men charged in the case, each of whom pleaded guilty, officials said.
A total of 165 counterfeit guitars were sold to pawnshops nationwide from 2008 to 2011 for about $56,000, according to the documents.
“About 90 percent of the counterfeits were Martins,” a federal prosecutor said. “This was done as they toured the country.”
The counterfeit guitars carried the marks of C.F. Martin and Co. Guitars, Guild Guitars Inc. and Gibson Guitar Corp., according to federal documents.
Federal agents said the fakes looked real.
