Warning--- Fake Dimarzios on Ebay !!

Ok after reading much about people getting burned on these Dimarzio/IBZ pups that are floating around ebay. I decided to send an email to Dimarzio.

I know that people around here have known they were fakes for some time now, but I dont think anyone confirmed this 100%

Dimarzio confirmed via email to me that they are fakes made in china..

So just a Warning to all Jemsite members that they are 100% fake and do not buy them unless you want the tone of a turd

This is what they look like and this is what you dont want

Assume most of what you can get "cheap" on eBay is fake and you wont go far wrong. I see a lot of so called genuine Jems from Singapore and the like, going for under market value. Leave well alone.

Re: Warning--- Fake Dimarzios on Ebay !!

Glad to hear an "official" word from DiMarzio after we all started arguing about these in that other thread. Most of us knew they were fakes based on the look, logo, and obvious sweatshop manufacture--now the naysayers will be silenced.

Honestly. How often do you get to use the word "naysayer"?

Not a complaint mind you.

Please do! You know you've got your watchdog chompin' at the bit here...

Also, the Hong Kong seller has disappeared for a bit, but there is a seller in Canada trying to pass these off now.

Different seller--the one you're referring to is from Canada, but those are the same fake pups. Those pink blocks covering DiMarzio is just a Photoshop cover.

Re: Warning--- Fake Dimarzios on Ebay !!

I also emailed the seller about these fakes, and this was the reply:

hello,
i'm so sorry to hear that. actually we have sold the item for more than 2 years.
and i can assure you that this is 100% Authentic.
The rights owner or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the rights owner, Dimarzio, Inc., notified eBay that this listing violates intellectual property rights. When eBay receives a report of this type of violation, they remove the listing to comply with the law.
that is the reason why we delete Dimarzio from the title and the picture.

actually i like the brand very much. each of my guitar is use the brand.
now this case made me very depressed.
if you trust in us, you can be confident to buy the item.
best regards

If the DiMarzio VERO authority tried to shut them down, why can't Rich get them for the IBZ part?

As often as we get to say, "naysayers!"
Covering us the DiMarzio logo with a pink strip was my point to the boneheaded seller, too. Also, did you read the fine print? Items will be shipped from Hong Kong, not the seller's "location" in Canada--these counterfeiters are now falsifying their locations. I'm going to list a turd on eBay, but paint a purple stripe over the peanut chunks and call it "organic material."

Permission granted.

I'll get started the next time I search, but if somebody could post the sellers ID's and a couple current auction numbers I'll get them all done.
