Ibanez finally speaks about the fake Chinese models

Sorry if this has already been posted.

"Some auction websites currently have hundreds of instruments that look like Ibanez guitars and/or feature our trademarked Ibanez headstocks and logos. These guitars do not offer the feel, sound and quality people expect from Ibanez. In fact, most are not good guitars by any standard.

We here at Ibanez, our distributors, and our retailers have heard many complaints from consumers who have purchased these instruments thinking they were getting a great deal when actually, in the end, they were getting swindled.

If a guitar is up for auction or straight sale at a price that is a fraction of what a new or used Ibanez guitar would typically sell for, chances are it's not a genuine Ibanez. If the shipping cost is more than the price of the guitar, it's probably not a genuine Ibanez.

The best protection against being cheated or disappointed is to buy your new or used Ibanez guitars and basses from an authorized Ibanez retailer. Please contact the distributor for your country thatfs listed on the Ibanez website to find the nearest Ibanez authorized retailer.

One final but very important note: Because of the damages and hardship that illegal merchandise cause at so many levels, counterfeiting is a serious crime. By regional statutes, in the most countries, it's not only a felony to sell counterfeit merchandise, it's a felony even to own it."
