2 more that I've had severe problems with:

siamese_axes <== all-round dodgy guy. Treats guitars like jigsaw puzzles and constantly does anything he can to avoid any fees he can pay. Real name is Yut Pranda.

Contact me for any e-mails needed.

re: Anti-Fraud Thread: verify a guitar, seller, fakes

siamese_axes is/was a member here and also a member of the old PGMsite. Maybe, you can try looking for him here for verification.


And if i recall correctly, he posted a link of a maker in Thailand (or something) who makes PGM, Jem, PRS,& etc.. copies. I guess a couple of old PGMsite members are able to verify this.


Sorry to go off the track, but does anybody know when pgmsite will be up again?

I wouldn't mind, but I agreed with the guy not to commence on a sale and he put an unpaid item strike on me that I'm now fighting with **** (I've got proof so everything should be ok.)

Both look authentic enough to me, even though the second one has a crappy picture (has sketchy feedback though, I certainly wouldn't bother.)

Thanks mate.
I need to look up the specs for the G10 can anyone direct me to somehwere with detailed info.
This G10 seems to have two single coil for neck and mid and a um for bridge...I thought g10 came with two hums at bridge and neck with 1 coil?
And the lightning inlay

There are loads of different variations of the Gio guitars try the official Ibanez website or Harmony Central.

that guitar was sold some time ago - the real seller - Ibanezking had about 10 copied auctions before the day was over....

Ibanezking visits this forum - he made a thread about it.. you may even see that same guitar for sale on his site (click on cottam guitars above)

This item, the seller has a photo that got me suspicious, a photo from Jemsite rather than his own. So at the time as there was a cheap buy it now, (too good to be true), I asked him if he has any photos of his own to show the condition.

I got back yet more photos from Jemsite, and what made me laugh was he even sent some photos of the serial number, but not just one, TWO different photos of TWO different serial numbers, on the HEADSTOCK and even the machineheads aren't the one this model is supposed to have.

So I emailed him back, saying that they are from Jemsite and asked if he actually has any of his own, or is he a fake?

I think we all know the answer to that one.
