EDIT: how can you tell its not a gibson from just looking at it (if its deff. not a gibson)
im not really a fan of them, i feel they are overpriced...but if i can get one for like 300...why not, even if its not real.

any opinions?

NO!!! DO NOT ever buy a $.99 Gibson with $300 shipping from China.

They're completely fake. Poorly constructed bodies-most likely of plywood. They're meant to look pretty and that's it.

Again, NEVER buy one of these. Never. They aren't even on the same level as a Squier Bullet special.

I won't be responsible to it if the buyer give me a wrong address, I won't pay the second shipping cost.


I am so sure they will say that you gave them the wrong address no matter what.

Those aren't totally fake, they're just EPiphones with a Gibson Headstock. You can tell by the pickup sticker

Ok, back to these chinese knockoffs, Everybody here can easily trash on them, but no one has said anything about actually playing one. Has anyone ever bought one of these??? or is everyone just talkin sh*t because that seems like the right thing to do, seriously??? I'm not defending these knockoffs but how can you talk about them if you've never played one? Just because they are copies, they are sure to play like crap??
#34
tabber666 i think it was bought a jem from them and the pickups werent alligned and he said it sounded horrible. It only looked good and that was it. dont buy it please.

Does China even have a copyright law?

Indeed. China does it because it's not illegal there. Their copyright laws are extremely liberal to nonexistent.
