Why does Ibanez allow these Chinese scumbags to continually sell fake Ibanez guitars on the evilBay??? Fender and Gibson go after these auctions the second they are put up. I've even had Fender get one of my auctions shut down for using the word "Fender" in the title when it was an original part used on Fender guitars.

Right now I'm looking at a Chinese auction for a new Ibanez 3120 sitting at $120 with 3 hours left to go. I know good and well it's a fake and would never bid. However, there have got to be a bunch of people getting screwed on these guitars. One time I got an email reply from one of the auctions telling me that a new RG1570 they were selling was made in China.

You would think Ibanez would get these people shut down.

There are literally HUNDREDS of them, e-bay is FLOODED with them.

So annoying, I want to look at good stuff, and not "Precious new-fangled exquisite artifac collectabe PERFECT!!"

(although, the obvious use of online translators makes for a funny read sometimes, they're quite inaccurate as you can see. I used to use them for all my Spanish homework. . Im surprised I passed.)

I've been noticing these and it really ticks me off. This is the first thing that comes up in a search for Ibanez.

Would you look at that headstock! Awful!
I wouldn't accept that as a present.

There's a massive shipping fee too. I hate to think of the poor suckers who think they're actually getting an Ibanez, especially where they've used a photo from the Ibanez site. Have the real Ibanez not noticed this?

That's why any guitar search I do, on ****, I immediately search for US ONLY auctions. Otherwise, I just get steamed. Scumbags.
