Be careful - Fake Chinese RG1527

One of my students purchased what he thought was an RG1527 but it was just a counterfeit Chinese knockoff that someone had done a good job of adding an Ibby decal to. Guys, if you are buying from a third party and not a reputable dealer, please make certain to either possess the knowledge or bring someone who knows the differences between a counterfeit and the genuine article. No way to return it, but thankfully it was decently built and once I replaced the springs, set it up, and threw in the old stock pups from my own 1527 it sounds "okay" so it isn't a total loss, though not worth the $350 he paid for it.

Id like to see it as well. First I've heard of 1527 fakes Sad, glad you sorted it for him! They arent "bad", they should just make their own brand.
