On guitarfetish.com. whats up with them? They look nice and seem legit, but they're so cheap... anyone had any experience with them? I'm looking at either the solid or semi hollow teles. The orange hollowbodies look downright sexual IMO.

I have bought pickups and parts. No complaints.

Cheap Chinese labor will shine brightly on you this day.

I've got two. Sort of. My SG is from a Xaviere built-it-yourself kit, and my partscaster, the Mofongocaster, is made up of GFS parts (Except the neck and tuners). They are good guitars and good value on their own, and amazing after a good setup and a few modifications.

i've always kinda wanted a tele or a guitar with just single coils. I dont want to spend a ton of money and id be happy with anything that stayed in tune, didnt make a bunch of fucked up rattley and jangley noises. For $150 i might just have to check one out. If nothing else as a base for a project guitar. I wish they made mustangs though...

Tremendous value for money, IMO. I've got four of them, and two were from their seconds closeout page. For the life of me I cannot find any flaws. They're worth buying just for the painted bodies, which are finished in UV-cured polyester and are bulletproof.

The fretboard on one of my Tele alikes has a sharpish edge but the other three are fine.

I've tried some out at music stores. Quite nice, for the price. I'd say they can compete with comparably priced Squiers.
