    What the heck is this? They say it's Gibson but also an Epiphone, but it looks like a Chinese copy to me. Very interesting truss rod cover.

    He's got 8 pages of stuff, Strat, Tele, SG, LP, and V styles.

    I wonder how little he pays for them if he can charge these prices.

    What's Basswood anyway, is it plywood?

    Gibson may be interested to know that some guy in Texas is selling copies with the Gibson name all over them.

    It looks like another one of those cheap line of Gibsons that Best Buy sells

    Basswood is very simular to Alder

    Looks like a quite elaborate ripoff. He seems to have repainted Epis. Gibson would not be happy.
