Re: anyone heard of the guitar brand Noki?

No, it's not made by Google. Stop spreading lies about Noki guitars, please.

In fact, if you had googled it yourself you would see that there are no helpful results.

I have never heard of Noki guitars, but it can very well be a guitar also known with other names. Many asian factories (mainly Korea and Japan) made guitars with different names. A picture would be awesome.

Considering the headstock design is copied from Ibanez, it's either a luthier made guitar, or a cheaper knockoff brand of some sort. Does it play good?

Surprisingly yes, the pickups sound somewhat like what you would find on an ibanez, but, well, aren't ibanez. THE sustain is also surprisingly good for an obviously Asian made guitar. And as an added bonus, it looks pretty awesome.

In that case, I would keep it. Unless someone else can find more info on these guitars, if you try to sell it you'll have to do it for a very low price. Since it's fixed bridge you can play around with different tunings and stuff like that. Is it a bolt on or set-neck?

It's a bolt on neck, so I guess I could put an ibanez neck or just a different one in general. And it's actually not a fixes bridge it's a standard tremolo, nothing fancy, but yeah, bad picture quality.

Re: anyone heard of the guitar brand Noki?

Humm I just purchased a NOKi which is an exact replica of the Ibanez RG570 guitar, it has a quited top, pristine finish of the wood grain with a burgundy lacqer on it. It is made in japan with locking nut, LoPro edge tremolo, V1 and V2 humbackers and a S7 single coil in the middle.
So, for someone to say that NOKi are replicas of somebody it cannot be farther from the truth...
It seems that Ibanez makes these NOKi's on a limited basis for the Asian or european markets. Mine,(the equivalent of the RG570) is appraised at E600.00 (600 Euros) in Europe... So weather we like it or not...NOKi's are made by Ibanez. I will post some pictures soon.
