    Well maybe even ALiBaBA learns from their mistakes. If they put out nothing but shitplanks, words gonna get out and none of us silly rubes are gonna take the chance on one. Probably addressed some issues with the builders. Honestly I'd be tempted around tax return.

    The seller i purchased the fakemachine from kind of disappeared (happens all the time) as far as specs they can do just about anything. I also received the fakemachine before the cities took place so idk if you can smuggle rosweood necks lol. The shop i ordered from had
    (Necks)
    Maple, mahogany, rosewood, wenge 5 piece, figured maple
    (Fretboards)
    Maple, rosewood, ebony, figured maple
    (Body)
    Mahogany, alder, ash, japanese ash, elm, basswood, walnut
    (Tops)
    Any body wood can be a full thickness tops. They have figured maple veneers, rosewood veneers etc.

    All colors are available

    You can spec out some crazy stuff just need patience to find the right seller.

    Looks cool, not something I would ever do but glad you enjoy it, thats a beastly veneer btw. Anyways hope you don't get dicked over on your truss rod, but from the sounds of things you have the knowledge and skill set that you can overcome most shoddy China issues.

    I must ask are you satisfied with it though? I know even if I bought an Epi Les Paul custom upgraded it to ebony all pickups wiring and hardware, I would still feel like all I have is a place holder for what I really wanted, even if it was the worlds best player. But maybe I just like names too much.

    Well thats the thing, if you are getting a guitar from aliexpress because you want a blackmachine or a mayones dont. The only reason i ordered it as a blackmachine because it was a listing for just the neck and i dumbly thought they would have charged more for different designs. With that said i believe these guitars can be totally worth it if what you really want doesnt exist. Like if your dream guitar is mahogany body maple neck 7 string then go buy one that exist cause theres plenty. All I'm sayin is go to aliexpress if you have a weird design in mind like an 8 string explorer or 7 string roswell v. You get the idea, be unique and itll be worth the upgrades. With that said I'm totally happy with my fakemachine, its not a shape id personally go for but i really just wanted rosewood neck and this guitar more than satisfies that. To give an example i have a washburn solar17etc and an agile penulum 72527 with stainless steel frets and lungren m8s. I play this guitar way more.

    That is a very nice axe! What about the strings action? is it comfortable to play?

    Again i had the frets refretted so the fretwork is basically flawless. I set my guitars with about 1.15-1.25mm high e and 1.5-1.75mm low B 12th fret. The thing pretty much plays itself
