Looks like they are fake Gibsons (since none of them show the front of the open book headstock) so if that is your interest, I don't think this is the forum for you..I saw a naughty boy sg jr on ebay, for $299. Obviously fro China. Sure looks good, does anybody have expierience with these?
The ones on ebay didn't show the front and had the same shape. "Made in Usa"...The "Naughty Boy" is its own brand from China, with a different headstock shape then a Gibby, and it's own logo. Problem is, do you want to spend the price of it plus, to get it playable? Think of every part on it as cheap garbage, and the fret work done by blind drunk monkey. QC is NOT high on the list.
I am not going to argue about the CNC process. I have a few MIC guitars, and they are wonderful. BUT they were built for a MAIN known company. (Ibanez and Eastman.) My main point was that the PARTS were most likely garbage in these no name brands.While there are still a couple of factories in China that produce junk, they are disappearing fast for good reason. The vast majority are equipped with the very best CNC machines and produce guitars of a quality that is rarely matched in the west.
And a few do have the "Zewui" headstock design, which looks a LOT like an Ibanez one.The ones on ebay didn't show the front and had the same shape. "Made in Usa"...
