I was looking at some tabs earlier and a link for TangTrade came up on the side.

Thats apparently a real gibson for $350.

For me that would be about £200, you can't even get an epiphone for that.

They look real at the headstock etc, but surely there's a catch at that price?

I am amazed at how many threads about this site come up. Surely the large header "China Wholesale Products Center" would tip you off that they're fakes.

I thought this topic has been done before..
but yes, theyre fake, remember, when a deal is TOO good to be true, it probably is.
Sometimes its worth paying 2000$ for a les paul than 900$.

How can they get away with selling fakes like that?


Technically, they shouldn't. It's illegal, and possession of them is too(As is selling it). But when something is a hot ticket, there's always someone selling a crappy version that looks the same, but falls apart after a few weeks. Rule of thumb: If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

Honestly, this is the third in the past few weeks I've seen, can we please get a sticky'd thread up at the top with a headline like "See an expensive guitar for cheap from a Chinese company? It's probably an illegal copy." or something else to alert people to it? Seriously, shouldn't common sense ring in?

Surely common sense would prevail...
What would give you that idea? You have both been to these forums before, right?

Jesus Christ, use your brain.

In what universe would you be able to get a guitar retailing for $1400+ for $300?

They also don't look right at the headstock. Gibson uses 9 digit serials for their USA guitars - those are 8.

Also, USA guitars get stamped serials and CS ones get the printed, but they lack the Made In USA label and have serials that are 7 digits and begin with CS.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Stop giving these sites free publicity. How dumb do you have to be to think these are real?
