    I think the second one might be a fake.

    Both Chinese, but one made at Deawon and the other at Qingdao. The Qingdao plant was probably still using Korean parts at that point, so the vendor for the knobs were different.

    Yeah the square level knob placement thing is a Korean thing. So it's possible they were using templates from Korea at first. Personally square knob placement on an SG just looks too wrong for me to live with it. Also throws me off since I already own several SGs and they all have the proper slanted parallelogram knob placement like God intended. :shock:

    But seriously, looks rather Korean.

    My cherry G-400 has the squared knob placement as well. It is a 2004 I believe.

    no knobs are fine but your pickups might not work.........the frets might shred your fingers .......a tuner or two might be lose ......the whole thing might need 150.00 worth of set up to work right ----but yeah-----spend 3 times as much ........ and dont worry about getting any interest on your savings account this month--or where your KNOBS are.....:facepalm:

    Too much plastic on that thing for me, and it's got a shitty nitro finish.
