Note on Buying Cheap and Famous Branded Guitars



i just want to send out a warning that there are a lot of fakes circulating here in the classifieds, while this is usually not a problem, they are very well-made nowadays, that are very hard to detect. be careful of brands like Epiphone, Gibson, Fender, Gretsch, etc. while we still do our best to ban members selling faked items, we usually do not have the expertise to prove them online.

what i am trying to say is, if you want to play safe, only buy from reputable sellers, and avoid noobs or non-regular members, especially if you are not an expert in detecting Chinese counterfeit guitars.

and on that note, if you dispute a guitar's authenticity, you may open a thread about it and have it discussed. i will allow that, and the seller has to not take offense.
