You need to look a little closer at the pictures. Not even the pictures are real gibsons.


To the OP. If it comes from China, if the website has Chinese writing on it. If you see a gibson anywhere for anywhere near that price you are getting a fake. The electronics are bad, the wood is plywood and they sound like shit.
The only people they will fool is people who don't know what a gibson is and thereby they would be impressed with any no name guitar.

To clarify for the OP.

1. They take photos of supposedly real Gibsons and put them on their site.

2. You pays yer money.

3. They send you a piece of shit Chinese copy (i.e. NOT a genuine Gibson).

Simples!

Emphasizing the Piece Of SHit part. It's not a decent copy, it's barely good enough for the fireplace.

Counterfeiters have been getting better, but you're still better off spending that $300-400 for an Agile.. or 200-ish for an Xaviere... or save up for a real Gibson.

Remember, it's not a real Gibson unless the price makes you cry. :thumb:
