I think the automatic reaction when looking at something like this is to turn your nose up at it and say that they are all shoddy copies, but i suppose these are basically the same as Serviceman guitars.

These are just made with mass produced parts, most are average decent quality. The tuners are comparable to a Chinese Squier. Branding the guitar is where they fail (Fender logo on the tuners, neck) The servicemen were made with whatever was handy at the time.

These are probably made at the Chinese Jay Turser plant, as the Muso Ricks have the same headstock shape (The 325 Copy only) as the Jay Turser (I had one before).

$110 bux to have it shipped here. I got lucky with customs, she declared the value @ $100, so I should have had to pay but hey who am I to question Canada customs practices.....


Canada customs are never consistent. I think they spin a wheel or pick numbers from a hat when deciding if/how much customs to charge.

Congratulations on your success! Now, if only to get up the balls (and money) to order a Les Paul, then bigsbify it.

That Tele actually looks pretty nice. I may have to try out one of the Ric or Gretsch copies.

They don't have any cool jag/JM inspired guitars (except that lame offset strat thing). If they did, I'd order one. I wonder if their luthiers take requests?

Haha the Musoland Jaguar Strat thing is less offensive looking than the Fender one.
