I had a difficult time just recently with MUSO guitars, on aliexpress , I saw a 7 string jazz box in natural maple & contacted the seller for details.. they requested I make an order & pay first. after the money had been taken from my account , they told me that they didn't have any natural ones in stock .. & sent me a picture of a sunburst one , that was disappointing to start with ,... I had also put in an order for a spalted maple top PRS copy with them .. & was told that particular guitar wasn't the one they would be sending.. they sent me a picture of another one , that was rather ugly .. I immediately cancelled the order & told them that they should only advertise guitars they have in stock.. 2 days later, I got a message from ali express saying they had refused cancellation & refund.. by this time I was livid & went straight to "chat" with one of their selling agents & described the situation... I had to make a really strong argument that they were not supplying the instrument I saw in the ad & instead had proffered a substitute... this comes about from emailing 2 different sellers agents & having to repeat myself over & over.. , the 2nd seller eventually checked the ad against the pictured ones in my message & authorized a cancellation & refund.. I also ordered a nice strat from another seller AIDY music , that I have not seen the ACTUAL guitar other than the one in the ad.. they are taking their time with shipping & I suspect that the guitar is still being made.. .... a few months ago I bought a lovely burled top telecaster from Chenpu Yang store.. I requested that they change the pickguard to a black one.. the sellar OK;ed this & then on arrival I saw that is was a different guitar.. lucky that is was a nice one but the bridge was a barrel type like on older telecasters , rather than a block type like on some strats.. well I let that one go ,, it's a nice instrument all the same.. it's clear this seller on sold another instrument with a black pick guard instead ,. it wasn't changed... but in any guitars I'm interested in , Now I request that they tell me if it's the original guitar as advertised in aliexpress. some exasperation & frustration with these people./ it is not possible to tell who is a reseller or the Original Maker supplier , it seems the direct factory sellers can & will make custom changes , communicating with some of them.
is 35 guitars excessive ?.
