Well, if you watch my channel, Davesintexas on youtube you know that I have had 2 fakes from China that came in and sounded and played Great. The First time that happened was over a year ago and the PUPs failed shortly afterwards along with the tuners crapping out. So, time will Tell about this latest one a ES 175 Hybrid Gibson Fake.
BUT, it has been brought to my attention that the TRUSS Rods in the Newest Les Paul Fakes has been changed. No longer do they come with an Allen Key since they NOW have Similar RODs/NUTs that a Gibson has. They also have brought back their Counterfeit Model! Where EVERYTHING Matches Up with a Real Les Paul. To include the Bindings, the hole locations and the Style of Print for the Serial Numbers and the Location of the Made in the USA on their fakes was lowered and no more white paint! This ALONG with the New Electronics, I was told were from Korea, means the Chinese are gearing UP for the Rush of orders made available by the $1,000 dollar Price Increase by Gibson on ALL their MODELS! Sure Hope Gibson Finally steps up to do something. Have a good one.
