I clicked on an add for this site. Looks like nice name brand guitars, they say made in the usa on the back in the pictures, and they have serial numbers, but they are ridiculously cheap, because according to the description, they are "made in china with parts imported from the US." that doesn't really make much sense to me. Anybody know about this, have any experience with this site? I'm assuming it's just flashy crap, made to look good, but they can't be that bad can they?

This is just some chinese bullshit, selling off some fake guitars as Gibson, Fender etc... don't bother! Buy your guitars from reputable dealers.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

Holy crap, check this out!

Don’t listen to these guys. Of course a cheap Chinese copy sold by a web site that barely functions is going to be worth what you pay for it. You should order one right now!

Or ebay, which is what most of us do

Unplayed '59 Les Paul for $300=Fake


lol considering picking one of those up for under $300,000 would be a steal

I'm sick of tradetang posts. Not only is the site blatantly illegal, but if anyone looked through a page or two of EG, they'd find one already made about it. Yes, it's fake. Use your logic.

No you didn't. You wanted them to be good so you could get a "Les Paul" for 300 bucks! When I first found that site, I wanted them to be, too.

I would bet the product they send you (If you want to support illegal activity) in no way resembles the flashy pics on the add.
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

TradeTang has adds on UG. Anyone ever see those?

But yeah, we can't go a day without someone posting something about TradeTang. Didn't you learn that if it's too good to be true, it probably is?

I think since no one uses the search feature, next time one pops up we should all band together and give the site rave reviews and swear by the "real" guitars we buy from there. Call it a guitarist secret.

I saw an add for a Les Paul painted with my favorite brand of bourbon. It looked sweet. I didn't want to paint my Les Paul, sooooo, I ordered it. It looks awesome. It plays like a cheap knock off, but it's a great wall hanger.
My wife said " It's either those damned guitars, or me!!"

I miss her a bit.

Sorry. Just adding my experience on the subject. It popped up in a search. My apologies.
