Zane guitars

Who is this guy? I see his listings all over the bay. He puts an Ibanez pickup in his guitars just so he can put the name "Ibanez" in his listings, then proceeds to bash Ibanez? (In a few instances the hated INF pickups! LMAO!)
I think if you make a quality guitar, you should be able to advertise it on it's own merits, not bash or leech off the competition and their name. What's more, his guitars look like Chibanez's.
Thoughts?

Re: Zane guitars

what a tool this guy is...I know nothing about his guitars, but I tire of seeing his listings under Ibanez when I am searching, and he always puts his crap at the top so I have to see it multiple times a day.

Re: Zane guitars

Quote from Rich:

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.

180332503794

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.

The whole thread is here: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f15/do...his-90666.html

Re: Zane guitars

SIMS did the same thing with his SIMS guitar. His theory was if you like Ibanez Jems you will like my guitar. Oh god.

Re: Zane guitars

Good! I hope Mr. Reim and a team of highly-skilled attorneys kick this guys ass!
I think the typical customer (read "mark") this guys is looking for are kids who scraped together their hard-earned dollars in the hopes of getting a Jem. They would be far better off buying an RG350 or an S520.

Re: Zane guitars

I wanted to bump this thread even though it is several years old. I work for Zane guitars out of Antigo, WI.. We are a new guitar company that has only been around for 2 years or so. We named the company after a young man who inspired us to start the company and are in no way affiliated with Teddy Zane, nor had we ever heard of him prior to us naming our company. Now that our name is getting more well known, I did not want there to be any confusing the two.

I've seen your guitars.... very impressive and a great (but sad) backstory.

Re: Zane guitars

Thank you. Zane is an incredible person. He makes no excuses for what he did but he has definitely grown leaps and bounds and now talks to young kids about the importance of not doing what he did.
