        For one they're complete crap and secondly no need in supporting chinese counterfeiting.

        If I were you I'd look into Japanese copies such as Burny, Greco, Edwards, Tokai, Bacchus, Aria, etc...

            I bought one a few years ago.
            With some work (set up, fret crown and level, fret ends needed doing) it didn't play that bad, probably as good as a low end Epiphone.
            But it just bothered me that to get it even decent it would need new tuners and pups and electronics and hardware.
            I figured that by the time I got it up to playable I'd have close to a grand in it and lately for a couple hundred more I can buy a real Gibson.
            Anyhow sold it to a buddy who sold it to a buddy then I lost track of it.
            All in all it's a bad decision to buy one.
            If your looking for an inexpensive yet good guitar look at Agile's.
            I feel like I'd have to pay the shipping if I gave away a guitar around here

                      Sure, drive to china, but make sure to bring some lube and something to bite down on. Best of luck!

                        The medium priced Edwards/Tokai have a great reputation. I have an Agile AS1000 (335 copy). It is totally stock and I love it. I got a comment on my tone this weekend. Agile makes great stuff.
