Greg Bennett guitars

I am considering on ordering a Greg Bennett Avion series AV3 guitar used from Guitar center.
I know these bear the Samick seal, much like Squier bears the Fender seal but that's all I know. I have read many reviews, and 95% were favorable, but 80% out of that 95% seemed to be inexperienced players.

Has anyone here had any experience with GB guitars? Is it worth the 150 dollar price tag?
NOTE:
Nearly perfect condition, only minor scratches.
Specs:
Mahogany body
bound mahogany neck
Rosewood fret board
24 3/4 scale


Heres a pic of the guitar I want to get.

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

Made in Korea at the Samick factory. It probably has Korean pickups as well. I own a Samick with some Korean brand of pickup, and I love it.

I believe they brought in Greg Bennet when they wanted to improve their style. It's hard to imagine that the actual guitar quality rose, since Samicks were already pretty nicely made(as far as Korean guitars go).

I'd pay $150 for it if I wanted a guitar like that. Samicks are easily as good as Schecters, LTDs, and Ibbies made in korea, but they fetch a lower price on the used market, which is good.

Edit: wait a minute, are those inlays crooked? If so, then I take back what I said.

Everyone gives the Classic Vibe rave reviews, too. Just saying.

It's hard for me to see them. It looks like it, but it could be the sh1t photography.
I'll ask tomorrow when I call back.
