I bought this guitar off flea-bay (eBay) and assume its genuine. It shipped from China ~ The seller has abt 99% pos feedback, shipped quickly and also sells other inexpensive brands such as Jay Turser, Washburn, Grote, etc.

...Just thought I'd share ~

Luv,

I actually suspect this seller as using the same factory as REG when I was snooping around before. They both use "Wilkinson" branded pickups in a lot of their guitars and seem to have the same body shapes. Their english wasn't bad, but not up to par with some of the other sellers.

He's selling on ebay as Grote Guitar.
I believe he works @ the factory, not buying scraps out the back door (frm asstd factories) as so many sellers appear to be.
He had a sunburst listed, I emailed requesting black - he answered saying no problem.
He sent me a tracking# within hrs of paying w/ paypal - he also did a custom build for my brother pretty quick.

FYI: this is his ebay store:

I believe this may be their AliExpress store, but there's no way to tell if one or the other is the real deal or not.

There's a Tele I've been eyeing, and if they would do them left handed, I'd possibly jump on it.
