A lot of unknowledgable people getting ripped off by these copys too . It's a shame this is allowed and I don't understand why ebay allows it when it is so ovious :mad:

Same thing has happened with other high priced items like Rolex watches with very good copies out there that even fool jewelers :eek:

And the actual name of the guitar, in their description says "Gibson"...spelled correctly. There has to be some grounds there for a lawsuit by Gibson (the real company)...

The almighty dollar is what keeps this sort of thing going. Ebay has known about stuff like this forever and Chinese companies are just not worth the hassle to sue.

The Gibson name on the headstock is off slightly, and The MOP on the Custom looks smaller..probably plastic.

But look at the Fender and Gretsch...They spelt the name right on them...

I did Contact Gibson , and they told me they are working with ebay to get them outta there.

I think personally its a scam.. The guitars if there is any come from China...They get your money and, there is no Contact number to call, if you have a problem.

Ah yes. Good old laissez-faire capitalism is infecting China like foot and mouth disease at a cattle love-in

dhgate.com seems to be an ebay styled clearinghouse for chinese made goods including knockoff guitars. A 2007 beautiful new electric guitar Gibson Note that the neck has not one but two serial numbers and they are different.

what if the factory next door makes knockoff carbon monoxide detectors and the one across the street, knock off brake pads?.......:mad:

maybe I'll call the garage and ask them if they're a good deal?
