Re: scum of the earth

bahahahahahaha

IMO people who get fooled by that, get what they deserve..

If they are stupid enough to think they are getting a real jem for $150 then I say let em suffer...

and if they are even more stupid to pay $2500 for a fake jem, then they should suffer even more with their hunk of junk...

Re: scum of the earth

Why on earth does this make people "scum of the earth"?

Serial killers? Child molestors? Heads of extremist dictatorial regimes?

Nope, guitar companies from the far east copying established designs...

Gotcha

No, he said he bought it from a local guy, not the manufacturer. And yes, I would label someone that does that as "scum".


IbanezFreak -> The kid is like 13 or 14. He didnt know any better, and Im willing to bet he begged his parents who knew nothing about said guitars.

Soooooooo, the person that sold is is the scum? We don't see the rest of the story here--that kid probably knows what they are, and didn't spend much anyway--email and ask him.
What about the folks that knowingly buy a Chibanez? Re they scum, too? Sorry, had to have fon with this, as everyone knows where I stand with anything Chibanez--by the way, has yours arrived yet.

This kid said it was a JEM and I was just blown away. I wont go much further then this : If some guy knowingly sold a kid a fake guitar and stole his money, thats just sick.


And yes I am scum! I havent gotten it yet. I was hoping to get it before my day off (tonight), but alas, nothing. The vendor I got it from has 100% positive feedback, so Im not worried, just annoyed she is taking her sweet time. Hopefully she sent me one of the "upgraded models" with the new sweet "Egde Po Tremlo System" (sic). LOL

Re: scum of the earth

Do they have 24 frets? The sunburst jem (lol) looks like it has 22 frets only.
