“Don’t waste thousands on the so called Genuine Article,these things are awesome…”
Hmm, I doubt that. And as these can be bought direct from the factory websites for about $350 delivered your Buy It Now price of $695 is a little excessive. To be fair though at least the seller is being upfront about it being a Chinese knock off, though the claims that Fender make some of their best guitars in China is open for debate.
The speed knobs, (which the seller has added) are on pots that are in the wrong place, the pickup selector switch is also misaligned and the pickguard is completely the wrong shape. Also notice that the pickups have some sort of Gibson decal on them, the real ones don’t.
The frets go over the binding, (see circle), the truss rod cover is the wrong shape, has the wrong sized screws and is too close to the nut. The crown inlay is wrong, as it the Gibson logo and they both should be Mother Of Pearl, not white.
