EPIPHONE: "typical representative of the Chinese art and culture"


Recommended Posts

Or so this Chinese eBayer claims.

This guy's pictures take a while to load up, but that's one gross guitar so it's worth the wait. If you are fonds of the Chinese culture, you can whack this beauty next to your priceless Ming vases.

 

Is it really an Epiphone?

Well, that's reminiscent of an ESP body-style, and maybe a Schecter headstock...

 

At the very least, it's a copy of an ESP, and not particularly "Chinese" at all...

 

At the worst, it's possibly an out-and-out fraudulent claim.

 

(ESP is a Japanese company, and I believe that they may have some guitar-building facility in the US, as well. Nothing "Chinese" about it!)

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

Is this the same dude from before? like not too long ago? if so hes sold 173 things since then and his feedback is pretty good.

 

Hey Brax if you want that guitar, the body is almost exactly the same as an esp model like mentioned above.

Hey, I happen to think that those ESP's look kinda cool in a nice dark Black Cherry translucent finish... for real, smilies or no smilies!

 

Hmmmnnn... I need to invent a "Black Cherry Cola Stainburst"...

Yes, but why stint yourself? I think the overall look would be improved by a roadkilled crow superglued to the body. And don't tell me that's not class. All those silly indie types just have these lameass stickers. A dead crow is real CRED, man!

It sorta makes you wonder how many ignorant people actually buy those things thinking they purchased a quality piece of merchandise.

Yeah, and how many people don't scroll down and see what the postage costs are! :D

 

It doesn't seem like he's being swamped by desperate bidders. Maybe he should go back to the sandalwood fans.
