To my naked eye, that looks like the real thing. Although it's easy to make a fake, those appear to be the real deal. If you look at the one I have in my photos, you'll recognize the resemblence to the ones you posted, especially the last one.

There's the possibility that the guitar you're getting will look nothing like the photo. Happens alot with those cheap chinese importing website.

Sorry I missed that one, I saw this on tradetang. I was looking for a Fake PRS for my son's birthday and I stumble upon those models that looked real. Price is about 100$ to 200$ more than the normal PRS copy so I wanted to know if they put a picture of a real PRS and then sending a guitar that is not the same or they were really more precise replicas.

As in if the guitars in the photos are what you get or what you think you're getting?

Odds are they're real PRS' lifted from Google images, that are nothing like the real thing they send you in reality. Buying one, owning one, and selling one, especially knowingly, is a felony, don't touch it. Rule of thumb, if it's too good to be true, it is.

Yeah you guys are right, I think I'm gonna buy him a SE!


some people knock SEs for being cheap, but to me, SEs are actually quite nice guitars. Sure, there are a few lemons, but no brand is perfect. To me, the SEs are just as good as the Electromatics are to the Gretsch Pro Series

why? i mean obviously cause it would say gibson or what ever on the head when its not make by the said company?

how does a site like this exist?

Wait a sec, you WANT to buy a fake PRS, so you post on here asking if they are fake or not? That's a new one.

"Are these fake or real?"
"They look real mate"
"Aww damn I was hoping they were fake..."

but yeah as people said don't buy from tradetang. There are some good PRS copy brands out there, Lancaster Guitars in Aus for example. You can do much better than what those guys are pedalling
