Do you think its worth a shot?

hey all, ive been looking around and been finding a few guitars that catch my eye, well alot haha, but anyway i was searching a few days ago and i found this **** seller, that sells blatant rip offs of guitars from china, and he/she does some realy nice loooking unique guitars that to my knowledge arent being made by a particular company. the specific one is was thinking about is les paul body shape, grey flamed maple top(maybe photoflame) but what really draws me in is that it has a khaler lookalike trem on it, humbucker/single coil config which are apparently emg, but i doubt that and 26 frets, which i just love aha, but i was wondering, is it worth taking the gamble and buying it and trying to do it up if its pretty bad or is it a no go?

How much?

Personally, I wouldn't buy off a dodgy fake seller as it would support him selling his counterfeit pieces of crap.

Definitely not mate!!! Don't be giving your hard earned cash to these rip off merchants. It might look okay in the pics but it will be of very poor quality. I've heard of some of these Chinese fakes not even having truss rods in them. Up to you but I'd stay clear.
