It's all fun but I hope noone is concidering buying any of these guitars since they "look good" and is so cheap?

So all the fun aside for a second.
First off, we don't even know if it's the guitar in the pictures that's for sale. Maybe they have photoed original Gibson, Fender and Ibanez guitars. I havn't reviewed the pictures carfully but at a brief look they look real.
Maybe the delivered guitar doesn't look anythink like the one on the picture and I understood they ship from China so avioding customer complaints would be easy.

Second, even if they finish is good it's fair to belive nothing else is. The intention must be to build a guitar as cheap as possible to keep the price that low so quality will be way less than acceptable.
You'd get machine heads that don't stay in tune, a cheap tremolo that won't stay in tune, cheapest pickups possible and the wood will likely be plywood laminated to thickness. Which will suck. Screws will go round after you uncrew them first time, same goes for the allen ones.

And this is not a guitar you can get and hotrod even because no matter what you decide to do with it it will fall back on it's lousy foundation it will always suck.
And if it's like botoxfox said it don't even have a trussrod... well good luck with that.

...just a couple cents worth, ...the guitar that is tongue.gif My thoughts are more expensive than that laugh.gif

Here's something interesting i found when looking at a gibson zakk wylde les paul.If you look it how gibson is labeled on the hedstock you can notice it looks almost exatct except the o in gibson looks more like an u .If you really know what to look for you will see the flaw . http://www.dhgate.com/productdetail_ff8080...lic29u_c22.html Also alot of them i notice have serial number's in the wrong place.Also even looking at there feedback i saw one dude that put guitar was ok but that the truss rod was not able to be adjusted laugh.gif .Even when i looked at an ibanez i could see small flaws in the print on headstock basically leting me know that they have did there best job to hand paint these logo's on here.Looks likethey did a pretty good job as far as body ect ect,but i can already tell its just a toy for sale with a name

Yeah that should be real. You probably would just be able to tell because of cheap quality anyways.
