Hey, I recently got my eye on a guitar, although, the place from where I'll be buying it, is selling guitars kinda cheap.

http://www.dhgate.com/wholesale/store/4028804b11440b420111469a376839af_0.html

The purchase would be made with a third-party trading company called DHgate, I know I can trust on it, and it's policy of being able to get a refund if the product isn't what was promised, although I'm still a bit hesitant about doing it.

I'm not really trying to gather info about the guitar, as to if it's fake or not, because I've done a lot of research on the images given on the guitar, including it's serial number, and it turns out to be real, though, nothing garantee's me that they won't sell another guitar, that could be a fake copy, instead of the one shown.


So ultimately, my only question/purpose is to ask if anyone here has had any experience from buying guitars from this sales company, especially Chinese residents, since this shop/company is based in Beijing, so you might have seen/bought anything from there.

It's website feedback is quite good, but nevertheless, I'm posting about it here for more feedback.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but all the guitars on that page are fake. The truss rod cover has three screws. Original Gibsons/Epis only have two. 100% fake. Check this article out for more info http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/CounterfeitGibsons/


Lol, well, I can't say they won't sell me a fake, although, the guitars shown on the images aren't fakes.

That was just a random pick, and it has the two screws, although, I'm looking for an epiphone, which is different from Gibsons, and the link is towards fake Gibsons, not fake epiphones.

And epiphone's do have 3 screws: http://www.epiphone.com/default.asp?ProductID=47&CollectionID=6

Sorry man, my bad. Looks like that article was restricted to Gibsons. Need to get my facts straight. But the price tag is still kinda making me uneasy.

Every guitar on that website is 100% without a doubt a fake. The pictures look good but the guitar you receive will not be real.

I'm going to close this because the criminals who make those fakes don't need any free publicity.
