    They seem to be reading our posts and fixing the things that they hadn't fixed before to make them look more "Gibson-like". Wonder how it plays. The guy is asking 600,000 pesos (about 1200 bucks mostly because of the upgrades. Chilean youth are always ordering from China an posting them here.

    Not even close.

    Pickguard incorrect shape.
    Controls incorrect location.
    Blocks incorrect size.
    Tailpiece too far back.
    Headstock inlays incorrect.
    Tuner placement is off.
    Stamping on back of headstock is too crisp for a white finish.

    The body looks stretched, too.

    éstos son hechos por los criminales, y vendidos por los criminales para solamente un propósito, de engañar alguien.

    The one thing they never get right is the black pickup ring screws. It's always the first thing I notice when I see a picture of an Epiphone, because they use silver screws. Even easier to notice on a Chibson

    Idk if it's the angle of the pic or not but that alignment between the tailpiece and the bridge is all jacked up.

    Ah yes, you're right. It's like they're reaching to the right from the tail piece to the bridge, like "wait for me!". Well, my post wasn't to say they are "good" as in 'GOOD", but that they're getting better at copying them, dispite the obvious inconsistencies. They are reading our posts!!! I wouldn't buy it though, unless it was half the price. I know he paid about $200.000 pesos for it! thanks for commenting.
