I have heard a lot of bad things about this site which sells chinese copies but mainly from people who thought they were getting real guitars for a 1/10th of their actual price. Seems schety but check out these guys... the travis bean is 400 and the les paul is 350... they LOOK sweet

BEWARE!!!! Google "Tradetang reviews" and you'll see what i see. It is a website for individuals in China to sell stuff. Some sellers are legit, some are not. There are mostly horror stories wihtin the reviews. The main complaints are:

1) Item was a cheap cheap knockoff
2) Items shipped was completely different than the item bought.
3) Shipping was very expensive
4) No way to get your money back


Be careful!

I would also stay away from them, as I saw on google cahce 2 items (that aren't for sale anymore) that the pictures look like they were from ebay ads from a while ago. the links are below. I am pretty certain the second one is a post guitar, but I am not sure.

I'm pretty sure the guitar in the top link actually belonged to someone who is a member here. I remember a thread about the Blues for allah inlay.
