Yeah, I personally wouldn't even think about buying anything over 200 dollars without playing it first. Ebay is definitely not where you want to buy your guitar.

no no no no no no no

it's indian. don't buy things made in very foreign countries, especially india--it might looks flashy, but it could suck. and it's india. you know this'll come smelling like curry.

haha please don't ban me.

don't be too harsh my friend.. sometimes foreign woods are better than local ones.. and sometimes, even the best brands can be surpassed by some cheapo or 'hardly-heard-of' brands..

i also wouldn't recommend buying from eBay.. you'll never know what you'll get until you lay your hands on it.. try out some other guitars.. imo, this one looks too fancy that you would handle it delicately in fear of having scratch marks that you would never enjoy it being a guitar..

I believe the maker is an alias of Antoniotsai's. It's kind of hit-or-miss - some of his r\works are awesome, some are, well, not. I wouldn't bid on it - too risky.

I wouldn't, unless you're looking for a pretty guitar to use as decoration. Some high end companies do sell heavily inlaid guitars as anniversary editions, but they're meant to be collector's items - not meant to be played. I would expect that chiseling all that wood out to make room for the stone and shell inlays and all the glue used to stick everything together would have a very negative effect on tone.

You sir, need to shut your mouth and get some education. This guitar is made in Vietnam, first of all - not India. And before you take issue with that, you should probably know that all the good ol' American companies manufacture their low-mid priced guitars in Asia.

The WOOD is from India, that's why it's called Indian Rosewood, to distinguish it from Brazilian rosewood. Just what do you think guitars are made of?? With the exception of spruce, cedar, and maple, it's all old growth tropical hardwoods. Where do you think these trees are to be found? Not here, that's for sure. If it wasn't for imported foreign woods, American guitar companies would go out of business.

Not to mention that INDIAN Rosewood is one of the finest woods out there for guitar making today... *Sign*
