Chinese guitars are usually always crap compared to guitars made in other places. And for that guitar, yea its fake.......£15 for the guitar and £185 for the shipping? Haha. No chance. If you were considering it, do NOT buy that guitar.

No, they price like that because it covers the cost of shipping AND manufacture, so when you figure out they sold you crap, they only have to refund the fifteen quid.

They're all crap, don't even consider them.

Good point, I never thought of that.

Here are obvious signs of a fake:

1. A low price in GBP
2. When a seller has the same item description for everything they are selling
3. Sayings like "If you buy this item, you get good lucky."
4. Item descriptions like "favorable stunning VERY VERY NEW guitar instrument!!!"
5. Extremely expensive shipping charges

If it looks good in the pics, it is because they took pics of a real one.

no matter how cheap they are, NEVER buy ANYTHING that fits at least most of the criteria above. The guitar is not worth the .99 cents you spent, much less the shipping charges.

Depends if they're OEM from proper company then its ok to purchase them. Ibanez has a factory in China and mainly ships the product to Asia country and some to the US nowadays, the serial starts with A.

I wouldnt trusts a guitar in eBay from China is good, they're usually a rip off coz of the shipping charges and whatnot.
