chinese gibson les paul copies

The market is flooded of Chinese copies of well known and established guitar brands. I think there are a bunch of cork sniffers out there who hate the idea that a guitar made in China, that costs a fraction of the price, could be nearly 90% of the guitar they spent thousands on. However, at the price point of Gibson Studios and Traditionals, you can have a much higher quality instrument if purchasing another brand (see ESP/LTD and even the higher end Epiphones). He owns many vintage guitars but he takes great pleasure in making any guitar sound great. The goal is to create a smokescreen of false equivalence when, in fact, this is almost exclusively a problem caused by the Chinese - and China doesn't seem to have passed any laws or made any agreements related to this issue at all.

I was baffled and upset that there was a company making replicas that actually say GIBSON on them. Intending to purchase the advertised Les Paul Standard, Jonathan and his father visited the seller at his house, where they were persuaded instead to purchase a Wine Red Les Paul Custom, which the man said he'd bought off a traveling musician.

In general, Gibson chose a narrower string spacing at the bridge than Fender, and therefore the polepieces on Gibson humbuckers were closer together than the magnets on Fender pickups. I will buy an American made product 9 out of 10 times simply to support our workers.I have nothing against the other products, but I'd rather have one MiA guitar than 5 imports. This relationship has allowed us to develop and maintain a dedicated group of craftsman at our facility and as GQ has continued to expand and increase the range of models made within the facility the community has enjoyed growth as well. One thing these Chinese copy don't do is to have the neck binding go over the fret ends.

No, it's not perfect (still need to replace the electronics, tuners, and pickups), but it's a great guitar. The Gibson Zakk Wylde Camo Les Paul - retail of $4,699 and I got it for only $314 including shipping. I'm not an expert, but I thought I'd seen a Gibson SG of some sort made in China, recently. I've owned a couple of them, one black with chrome hardware and one white with gold hardware, and they were both awesome guitars.

These guys are selling the site as chinese gibson made in China cutting out the middle man. For the most part, every Gibson guitar made prior to 1953 has a serial number or factory-order number” (FON) located on either the neck block (inside the guitar), or a label (also inside the guitar).
