Does anyone know anything about this??

I saw this auction on "that" auction site. I think it looks great, but has anyone actually played or owned one of these??

Well, if he's building them, of course he's gonna say it's better than Ibanez. As I have never heard of nor played one of his guitars, I would certainly have to question the validity of such a claim. All because one guy said so in feedback doesn't necessarily make it so.

It looks like one of those 150$ nate perle swirls. I'm preety sure he just gather parts and assemble them. He is not "building" anything.

No need to be a hater dude. I happen to own a Nate Pearl Swirl, and its a fantastic guitar. As long as its cleared properly they are fine.

Re: Does anyone know anything about this??

Are you kidding me? He's nothing but a load of crock. The neck on that is a Chinese neck they use on "offbrand" copies of counterfeit JEM's. He didn't even have the sense to take this guitar out of the box it was shipped from China in.

These are nothing more than Chinese built stock guitars with his branding and his addition of a pickup on some. Evidently he has no idea what "Made in the USA" actually means, or is just lying intentionally to act like he really does build guitars.

Read the crap he says about Ibenhad, yet here he is flipping $62 Chinese guitars for $599, talk about a hypocrite.

BTW he's personally pissed off the President of HUSA, and you won't find him selling these using any comparison to Ibanez in the future.

No hate at all. You asked what it is and I said what it looks like.

There is now a Zane Guitars out of Antigo WI. but they are a completely separate company with no affiliation to the other guy who was making this stuff. Their stuff is all handmade/custom and and top notch.
