So I heard about this website and I see mixed reviews about it. Anybody on here dealt with this company before? They look super shady.

When I was googling around for an Iceman They came up. Actually their Iceman site "ibanezicemanforsale.com" came up. Yeah, don't even go with it. Their guitars look exactly like the real thing but they are cheap Chinese pieces of shit that won't play well if they even play at all. They exist more for guys looking for really expensive wall decoration.

I saw this website last year.I was tempted to buy the Tom Morello Arm The Homeless guitar as he is one of my fav guitarists.It was going to go on my credit card so any problems ie it not turning up i would have been refunded.In the end i didnt bother as because with it coming from USA i probably would have to pay tax on it and also if i had any problem with the product it would have been a major pain in the butt to send it back.

Edit

Just rembered something else.I emailed them to ask a question and they didnt reply.That was also a deciding factor for not using them.

In the 'Why so cheap?' Section: "One same guitar, even if they are all handmade, but may be quite different in producing process, extent of details pursuit and degree of perfection, which is why some products of big brands, especially of their custom shop are expensive. However, a sparrow may be small but it has all the vital organs."

Oh, no, no, nooooooo.

Why so cheap?

One same guitar, even if they are all handmade, but may be quite different in producing process, extent of details pursuit and degree of perfection, which is why some products of big brands, especially of their custom shop are expensive. However, a sparrow may be small but it has all the vital organs.

What the fuck?

I've got to use that one sometime.

I may sig this.

Checked out the Angus Young "SG", tbh it would be sweet to have an SG with lightning inlays for <$500

Anyway, yeah. Don't buy anything from this site, and definitely not with a credit card.

Their relicing looks a little heavy,I think they strap them to the back a car and drive around the block.

There are highly rated custom shops in China. This is not one of them.

Was fun to look at but nope. Liked the dual humbucker version of the Fireman would make a nice addition to the Ibanez line. but the prices I can get some nice guitars for that price maybe not top shelf sig models but decent gigable playable guitars for the same price.
