So THIS http://www.tradetang.com/for-sale/wholesale-blue-color-electric-guitar/106906-2644122.html# looks so amazing and like Daves plus I am pretty sure it has a gibson logo on it. I would change whatever crappy parts there are out. Does anyone know if it has a trussrod and if not how hard would it be to get one installed in this?

That site has some balls, is it the same crap or different crap from TradeTang? Much better presentation, though the Chinglish still shows up. Is it possible that some of these Chinese guitars are well made?

Did you read my "Gibson" LP Custom thread?

Punkacc9 - if it's anything like my LP it will have a truss rod and be a really decent guitar. Am seriously impressed and surprised at the quality. I guess the only thing to consider is the pickups - as mentioned in that video Thomas posted, they won't be potted and prone to feedback, especially in a non-solid body.

Thom, I think you're gonna end up responsible for a sudden increase in chinese guitar exports... You should get a commission.

If they're up to the same standard as the LP Thom got they're a no-brainer. Remember tho, it took them a few years to get the LPs up to the standard they are now so the first few batches of these might not be quite as good. The old Chinese copies were laughably bad.

Pretty much anything that is being made in china currently should have great copies, I've been involved with a company who have production based in China that have had all their old tooling "disappeared" when changing manufacturer and nowadays most of their current tooling had been copied 1:1 and is now being used to create exact copies. The only way you can tell the difference is in the finishing and actual materials used.

Aye I bet if someone was to order they'd just get one of those wonky Jazzmaster copies instead. I've saved a seller who looks legit and has something like 30 completed orders. A majority of them either have none or one or two.

Tread with caution me thinks.
