I just found out about this site. Jeez, I've never heard of them before but their copies look darn good. They copy just about anything, You name it. Fender '54 strats, Teles, Jaguars, Gibson Flying Vs, Rickenbacker basses, Mosrite's Mark II... DARN.

I didn't see any prices on their website but I saw one of their Mosrite copies on eBay UK for 400 pounds which equals about $659 USD.

Here's their website:

And here's a few pictures of their guitars:

You said darn twice...

They look just like any other copies of popular guitars. I don't see what makes them stand out.

i know i cant say much on them having only played one but they are pretty good copies, that les paul had some awesome feel to the neck, and it was marked at about £600 but not a bad guitar for the price, so what im saying is i think they are aimed to be pretty damn good copies

I don't know of many copy companies but, to me, These look better than the ol' Fender or Gibson you can pick up in a local shop. Even the Mosrite copy looks better than Eastwood's version.

I can't find prices on their site but after searching on eBay UK I found some prices. They're mostly around the $650 mark but their Les Paul Jr. copy was under $600. These look darn good for the price, the Stratocaster copies may be really good.

Oh right, Here's the link.

TBH, a lot of companies start out making copies first to get their brand out there before producing their own models [ie Spear].

I'd much rather buy the real thing [well, for the Fender models at least].

They look good, but you'll probably have to play one first to determine quality.

The TUSCANY and EXLUSIVE guitar lines were introduced to compliment the company's Tube Amp product line.

Also to offer some lower priced alternatives to the high end FRUDUA brand.

The EXLUSIVE line may interest the folks not looking for copies of classics...

Fixed.

Why both when you can get the real thing [with the correct wood] for the same price?

Some of the Gibby models do look interesting though.
Gibson copies are always work looking at [Gibbys ARE expensive after all], but most Fenders copies are in the same price range as the Fender model it's based on.

EDIT: It is nice to see a copy of the '72 deluxe though. No other company does that.

some look pretty damn nice. but i wouldn't really trust it until i could pick one up. i think i'd go with agile over any of these just because i do have places i could find them. and i know their return policy is decent.

some of the gibson copies look pretty cool though! saw a really nice black carved top with a floyd. would be cool if it were a 25.5" scale though

I'm quite partial to the Rush and Arrow guitars meself. (The Les Paul and Flying V copies). They look damn sexy.
