Having one of those cheap guitars bought of Ebay for almost nothing, I'm actually quite surprised about the sound of the thing. I have no idea where my guitar was produced in the world, or if the company was telling the truth, that they had the model on MusikerMesse in Frankfurt, or whatever it is called, and now was selling it in an auction starting at 1 euro. In all honesty I'm fine by it, as I got it cheaply, it plays and sounds fine (of course it's no $10000-guitar).

That said I have not in complete awareness had one of these fakies in my hands, so I don't know how they feel or play, but they could be all right. But unfortunately if they started a company of their own they probably wouldn't sell that well as trying to cheat people smile.gif

Could be.. I assumed the neck was a fake too since i thought there were some oddities about the headstock, especially the logo.



The neck is definately fake too. Compare the flower pattern on the first fret of the real deal and the fake one.... the fake one has crooked leafs.... It's all wrong.

Thats a pretty bad copy tongue.gif
On dutch sites they sell copys that look much more real for 300€

I saw so many of them when looking for a real one.. (more copys then real ones for sale mad.gif)
They did say in the add that its a copy, but still it has Ibanez logo and design and such, isn't that very illigal?
I don't get how they get away with this.

it is illegal yes,


infact,


ibanez teamed up with a bunch of other brands to stop counterfeiting by shutting down a chain of counterfeit factories in china!

you can read about it here: http://forum.ibanez.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=74930


this one is really bad now that i had the chance to look at it carefully

but ive seen some (and so has my tech) that are spot on...

but they are spot on, play like one, sound like one, even have the same hardware like one, does that make it a copy? or a good deal ?

No dude, it doesn`t that it`s a copy. I`ve fought with the guy over email to change it so it lets people know
and he said `No it`s real, but thanks for the heads up`. He`s just trying to pawn it off on some kid
blind over a good deal.

If he sells it as a copy for $700 good for him, but at least he would tell whoever buys it. The way he`s going it is so greasy.
I hate people like that.
