Guys, this is the Third Chinese Fake that Ive gotten that has been Good All the Way Round! The Last one was that Les Paul 1960 Tribute. Sadly the Film Crew took that one back with them to Canada so I cant show it any more.
BUT, after waiting 2 Months I FINALLY got in a Gibson ES 175 Fake from China. Took one month to find out the first seller was not going to ship it. Took 30 days for the next seller but it got to me!
And I have to SADLY ADMIT that it's one Hell of a Guitar All the Way Round! The wood work and the construction details are near Perfect. The Hardware and the Electronics Are also PERFECT! At least they are for now! Ive been playing this since Thursday when it got here and I intend to keep playing it for this month of August to check and see just how well it actually holds up. Will the PUPs fizzle like one did last year? Will the wiring remain connected and working? Will anything on it break or just crap out?
Thats why Im going to test it before I pass a final judgement on it. BUT, as of these FEW DAYS, China Has MADE A GREAT ES 175 Gibson FAKE for only $315 Dollars! AND I Bought it from a Brand New Seller. Never heard of me ever. So, while Im testing it for playing I will also be taking it to the guy who builds cabinets for homes, have him check the woods,and take it to one repair shop to hear what they have to say about the PUPs and how they were constructed.
AGAIN, IM TOTOALLY AGAINST BUYING FAKE GUITARS....THESE GUYS ARE CHEATS AND PIRATES FOR THE MOST PART AND THEY SEEMS TO LIE AND SCREW EVERYONE AROUND THAT BUYS FROM THEM. So, check out the USED 175s before buying one of these fakes. I KNOW that they are expensive but also check out other brands than Gibson. I will keep you up to date on my channel. Have a good one.
