Does anybody know where this company gets their guitars from? They have a ton of broken guitars, missing parts, etc. for really good prices. Most are name brand Fenders, Epiphones, and others.
A couple of curious things, however:
They explain this on their website, http://riceageguitarsandparts.com/ but I am curious where all of these guitars come from. I am assuming that they are rejects from the various factories in Asia and the manufacturers don't want to sell them as seconds because of warranty claims. But why intentionally break them?
I am looking for a project to work on and I am thinking of picking one of these up to fix. $32 for a Fender Acoustic-electric is a pretty good deal even if I have to fix it.
Anybody know anything about them?

I comb through their listings from time to time. Only pulled the trigger once. On a Fender Sonoran acoustic/electric that was listed as having a bad neck set. I ended up steaming and flattening the top instead of resetting the neck and it turned out to be a fantastic looking/sounding/playing guitar. I gave it to my nephew who used it on a Nashville recording date.
