Should report the guy. There is something about the way he worded the ad that smells fishy to me....

That's terrible - the neck doesn't fit and not scalloped frets

Re: Is this a Chibanez?

Response from seller:


"Hiya there thanks for your message . Like i said in the ad i dont really know much about Guitars , it has Ibanez on the front and back of the head and came with an Ibanez tag on it. But a couple of people have suggested i get it checked out , so im taking it in to a guitar shop tommorow to have it looked at. If it turns out to be anything dodgy i will remove it from **** or relist it as whatever it turns out to be ! I picked it up from a house clearence i did along with a few other bits and pieces so ill get it checked out and if you want i will let you know. "

Re: Is this a Chibanez?

Some douche was selling one just like it locally on Craig's list.
I got into a heated exchange with him. He was a POS... just like the 'guitar' he was selling.

Re: Is this a Chibanez?

I'm willing to bet that those aren't pics of the guitar you'll receive when you 'win'... Team J-craft logo on the back of the headstock, wow, what a "reproduction" Yeesh...

Re: Is this a Chibanez?

The fact that he calls it a "Jem reproduction" is already his way out. Buyers beware. 510 USD now, that's a damned nice RG550 now.
