In that scenario you are suggesting that both are right, or both are wrong. You can't say robbing a bank in one scenario is right, and one is wrong. Im suggesting that if one is right then both are right, but others see one as right and one as wrong, and Im asking why.
Many are also suggesting that what makes it right or wrong is determined by the motive of the person selling the guitar. That me agreeing to buy a replica guitar from China is wrong because they are trying to pass them off as real, whereas buying a replica guitar from a skilled luthier for nostalgia purposes is ok because they both know the guitar isn't real.
if it makes you happy i'll say say that all replicas are fakes and then you dont have any defence whatsoever.
you are nitpicking a barely relavent point to try and justify something that is wrong. you have had a fake guitar made to order and then imported it into the country. not only is it morally wrong but it is illegal.
"because he did it too" doesnt work when you are in kindergarden and it certainly isnt going to work now. like i said, you could have had the same seller make you the same guitar but not put gibson on the headstck and all would have been golden. as it is you have an illegal fake.
