Hello everyone. I am looking at this guitar online that I might purchase, and I cannot for the life of me figure what kind of guitar it is. I have looked everywhere for information. I figured I would post on here and see if anyone with more knowledge than me might be able to help out.

That looks to me like some kind of cheap PRS copy. If you like that design I'd recommend taking a look at PRS, but I wouldn't recommend buying that one that's being sold online because who knows what could be wrong with it. If you can't even find the manufacturer it could be very risky

It's not a PRS at all.

Looks like a cheap PRS copy but do not get the two confused.

OP, don't trust blurry pictures like that, especially when you're purchasing a guitar online. If you have not tried the exact model of guitar you're looking to buy, you're accepting a huge risk that you could get either, ripped off through a credit card/identity theft, or just straight up get a crappy guitar. The blurry images mean they're trying to hide something, and are trying to deceive you. If you want a new guitar, but don't have the money, wait. Trust me. Save up for what you want, and you'll be happy to no end.

That's a bit far.


I agree with most of your points but things like that identity theft shit is and CC ripoffs are a huge stretch. Like, that can happen but really at the end of the day, this guy has a cheapo import guitar and is just trying to get rid of it. I would bet that if you asked the seller for more pictures he could provide that as well. This isn't fraud. It's just a crappy guitar.


I'm all for being safe when buying blind. I'm not into unnecessary fear mongering.

Yes I know. That's why I said looks like it. It's obvious that it isn't judging by the inlays, a few body stylistic things, and a few more things. I was simply pointing out what it may look like!

Thats great but that statement can be confusing to somebody that isn't experienced and they might consider your comment as you saying it's a PRS which is far from the fact since this guitar seems to be an asian made budget instrument. You didn't really say you thought it was a copy or a clone either. You said 'it looks like a PRS' hence why people replied to that comment.

No worries. For me it's best to be as specific as possible online cause unlike real life, people can't really catch on to implications etc... so it can be quite confusing (especially to newer players) when you make broad statements.

Wow thanks for the quick responses everyone, I really appreciate the help. I took a look at the link kabadi.man sent me and thats definitely the same brand. The guy is telling me it is a PRS made out of korea, but it has nothing to indicate that. Good thing is if I really want this guitar (which I don't think I do now) I could go try it out, this is through bookoo so there is no threat of me losing credit card info as it would be done in person. Judging by the information you guys gave me, his price of 250 euro is too high for such an unknown brand. I will be turning my attention elsewhere, so thanks again for helping me out everyone. I do like the design of that guitar though... :/

If it really was a non USA made PRS then it would still have a PRS headstock and would have a PRS etched truss rod cover and an SE logo.





Honestly, I would probably pass just because the guy tried pawning it off to you as a real PRS and that's not a kind of person I want to be doing business with.
