I'm new to playing and buying guitars, how is "ioffer.com" selling Gibson Les Paul's at prices no more than $400.00 ? Never seen these prices before...

My roommate bought a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses from them. He got them today, and they seem real. He paid fifteen dollars for them when they go for one fifty retail. I put an offer on a pair for ten dollars.

I'm not sure how it works, but it does.

It's weird, because he and I were just talking about this site ten minutes ago.

If it's real, I'm buying one, sorta scary though....That's one of those "too good to be true" deals...Thank you for replying

I'm sure it's a buy at your own risk sort of thing. I'd be careful spending that much money on something. Me, I'd lose ten dollars. You'd lose 400. So I'd wait and do some more research before you spend that much money over the internet.

I'd look this over:

licensed floyds and made in korea stamped on the back. not real.

edit:

element, i've bought ray bans from greece that seem completely legit. they have tags, the exact stickers, the bags, freaking everything. but they broke on the second day i had them. there's no way in hell that designer glasses would go for that cheap - the companies don't ship them out for that cheap. they're definitely fakes. if you still have doubt, go to europe and look at all the designer stuff they clone. it's spot on 100% identical. except they don't have the quality (the sunglasses at least, the handbags have the same quality).

Not a surprise, but I don't care as long as they look real. I'd rather spend 10-15 dollars on something that's not as good of quality than 150 on the real thing.

what are the payment methods?


EDIT: I just saw they have paypal, all that means to me is that you could con them right back for a crappy guitar

Element I think you are being trolled. Not about the glasses, the thread.
I'm not sure. I'm playing it by ear.

yeah that was what i thought. although i was pissed off when they broke on the second day.

also, guys, keep in mind that these may not be photos of the actual item - they may be photos nicked from ebay and other sites, and watermarked.

also this isn't looking very good for you, TS, signing up just to ask our opinion on a dodgy site. just saying.
#20
Honestly how do they play? Like I said before, if they look any different from the photos you could protect yourself with Paypal...I am genuinely interested in seeing if these are built solid....basically if you could work with them, I'm willing to be teh tester


^^^^If it's a fake guitar, of course you can as they advertised you another product to you, you'd lose out on the shipping though

I signed up to ask people who "know" about Guitars to tell me if I'm getting ripped off, Isn't that what forums are for? To get help on things your unsure of, or to offer advice if you do....

We have a lot of problems with advertisers, so honestly, your first post looks a little suspicious.

Sorry, If the site is a fraud I really want someone to post that it is, no advertising here, if it's shady it'll get slammed, and i'll sleep better knowing i didn't waste money, I'm a lefty and they have alot of different styles "which you never find for left handers in a Les Paul" and that's why i posted. hopefully someone who's purchased guitars here can fill us all in.......

I want this guitar so bad.

He specifically says it's made in China though.... obviously a complete knockoff. But I can't help but wonder how good it plays, especially for only $350.



that's my thought as well, I mean worse case scenario, you lose the shipping....paypal should be able to protect you since it's technically fraud

TS is an advertising, good for nothing dick sucker.

Damnit. dont warn me. Im too drunk. I dunno what im doing...
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.
