First of all, I am not an adbot.

I was shown this site by a friend.
Basically it's a site that makes replicas of high end guitars.

The difference between the price of the real thing and the price of theirs is staggering;
$1999 for an Ibanez RGD Prestige 7-String and their price is... $329.
The differences are even bigger with some $5000 PRS's being sold for less than $400.

All the real hardware and electronics come installed on these guitars as far as I am aware, and I have absolutely no idea how they can do this and still sell them for $350.


Does anyone have any experience with these, or know anyone who does?
The guy who told me about this site has a friend who has one and he says it's awesome.

So, what I'm thinking is that I might buy one of these.
I mean, I have a chance of getting a guitar with the same specs as a high-end Prestige Ibanez or something, for $350.
If it's as awesome as it's made out to be, fucking sweet. If not, what the hell, it only cost me $350.

They seem fairly confident that what they're offering is good though, since they offer what they call a "$1 Deposit Preview & Pay-After-Satisfaction Program", which as it's name implies, you deposit $1 and they begin making the guitar for you over the next 10-15 days. You get photos of the whole process, and a test video of the finished product at the end. Then you deposit the remainder of the cost and they send it to you.


Is this too good to be true? Sorry if this seems like a massive advertisment because it wasn't meant to be, I'm just explaining the situation so to speak.
Would you buy one of these?

Seriously?

OT: If it's not what Kenan said, they probably use really crappy wood.

I want to buy an 8 string, fake as shit or not, sell it, BAM, profit.

For reals though, it's GOT to be fake, there's no way....I still want to buy one for shits and gigs though

EDIT: yeah the spelling is ****ed, they have a 1 year warranty though.

Their products are probably pretty good for the first month or so you have them, and then they start to fall apart and suck. Like the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

They claim to be able to custom-build the guitars at the same spec, film each build, and ship the guitar to you from Asia, all for less than buying an actual one?

Order two of the same replicas, and you'll get the exact same video clip sent to you.

Send them $1, and they have your bank account details.

Go through to the delivery stage, see what that costs, and if you get cold feet, hope that the $1 wasn't an account check that then permits them to extract more. Basically, when you use a credit card at some stores, they'll charge you a little bit to make sure you have money in your account, before they commit to the full charge.

Their contact details are a Gmail account and a Hong Kong phone number - no US or Europe office.

most definitely chinese sweatshop crap with no consideration to wood or quality. anyone can put "1 year warranty" or 20 year warranty, i bet they will disappear when you decide to use that warranty. that and the regular prices they put for those guitars are so jacked up it's not even funny

edit: too bad you can't buy one of those PRS models and rip the body off to use on a proper guitar.. set neck

I ran through the site's checkout process using a fake name, address, etc. It redirects you to a Chinese paypal looking type site. It's a scam.

You can scam people using regular PayPal.
