    These are cheap even for imported fakes. There are no watermarks on the photos either. I looked at the pics for the LP Classic and they appear to be identical to the ones on Guitar Centre, so unless they're selling Gibsons for $169, these are definitely not photos of the guitar you'll receive.

    My guess is if you order one of these you'll receive nothing at all, or if you do, it'll be total junk.

    This is a known credit card stealing scam. Avoid.

    Yeah, those pics are all real Gibson’s. I’ve seen a website like this before, but I don’t remember if the name is the same. It’s definitely a scam of some sort.

    There was a guy near me selling standards just like these. They were'nt real and I told him so he lowered the price to 300-400 on each and finally sold them calling them, reproductions. Some people will buy them even knowing the truth. They looked like the best batch of fakes I'd ever seen.

    They're not fakes it seems, they're the real thing. But they don't have anything more than images to sell you.

    I like the idea of disproving the notion that there's a sucker born every minute...

    you should order like 100 guitars and put them in "check out" and ask for a shipping price :)

    Might as well buy a mystery box on the dark/dim/gray web.
