    OK, odd question... But someone not too far from me has set themselves up as an Ebay seller of Chinese guitars, with a special flare for creative descriptions - I'm guessing English isn't their first language.

    They're currently offering a LP shaped guitar with the following title:
    "New Human High Quality Custom Shop Bacon Color Electric Guitar"

    In the description they tell us it's "Suitable For: Beginner,Unisex,Home-schooling,Pro", and has 22 'tone positions'. :)

    Anyway, they're doing SG's under the brand name 'BUIDERS' - but sadly none in Bacon finish. Just Red or Black, seems the fakers are as unimaginative with SG colours as the brand they're copying usually are. :(

    FWIW, I had been happy to see they weren't passing them off as Gibsons, but now I realise the headstock is never shown in the photos, and I wonder if they're actually supplying them with Gibson headstocks. Something about that SG looks remarkably similar to the fake Gibson seen on this site recently:

    Haha ... looks like the guy doesn't want his face seen. But there's a half second there he forgot to edit out.

    And they do have the Gibson headstock/logo.

    Nice catch. Doesn’t sound like he’s going too last very long.

    I don't know this specific site...but often the counterfeit sites use pictures of real Gibsons in the ads, then send you their own.
