You do realize that in many places it's a felony to own one of these counterfeits, and especially to sell it? Just toss the thing, throw it out or give it to someone else. They're not that good anyway.

That says Gibson on the headstock. Therefore it is not only a POS but an illegal one. Illegal for them to make. Illegal for you to own. It gets worse and worse, doesn't it?

My LP was made in China. It was shipped 'raw' to UK where it was fitted out and setup to an excellent standard. It cost me about half what yours did. So to add to your message. DO THE RESEARCH and there are good deals to be had.
I pick up my guitar and play

it's not illegal to own them just sell them. the assumption is that you may not have known that it was a fake. it's not a crime to be stupid yet .

to the OP, dude my brother lives in china nad says that even the chinese people have more sense than to buy those. they are made to dupe foreigners plain and simple.

They also use stock photos of the real Gibsons to lure you. Info on this scam has been posted all over the web but some people are still unaware I guess.
Moving on.....

We can fix that. The punishment should be spayed/neutered.

The punishment for buying a counterfeit guitar should be that you're stuck playing it.

Actually, according to the warning Ibanez had, "One final but very important note: Because of the damages and hardship that illegal merchandise cause at so many levels, counterfeiting is a serious crime. By regional statutes, in the most countries, it's not only a felony to sell counterfeit merchandise, it's a felony even to own it."

maybe in some countries but not in the states. if it were a felony to own one they would be confiscated at customs and the buyer would be arrested. i think you'd be hard pressed to show me even one arrest based on owning a counterfeit guitar (the only exception would be perhaps a mass importer but that is a different thing.) in these cases the law assumes you are dumb and just didn't know it was fake. the same bullshit was spread about bootleg albums years ago but regular people couldn't be prosecuted for the reason i outlined. even with counterfeit money the person passing it if a regular person(who ame by the money from a legit source) can't be prosecuted. they will confiscate the bogus cash but you won't go to jail.of course the guitar companies will say something like what ibanez did figuring that most people wouldn't know differntly. i don't condone this at all and wish people like the OP would wise up. you can't get gibson quality for a couple hundred bucks end of story.

I call fear mongering bullshit on Ibanez's part. I'd like to some examples of people being charged with a felony for owning a single counterfeit guitar.
